So every year I have a huge TBR-post for the Christmas period. And that’s only too right, because every single year I have a pile of books the size of my Christmas tree. Of all them ready for reading. Most of them still unread after the holidays are long over. What I’ve realised, though, is that I have a (pretty similar: huge but remains untouched) list of movies that I want to watch every holiday season. And somehow, I never get to it. So this year, to mark that realisation: my Christmas movies TBS – to be seen!
Now, let’s be real: I do watch some of the movies on this list eventually. Last year, I actually discovered both Meet me in St. Louis and It’s a Wonderful Life and I absolutely loved both of them, even if I was just wondering what was going on half of the time. This year, I already watched Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (the 1964-version, it’s amazing). None the less: here are some more of them!
Christmas in Connecticut
There’s something about these old-school Christmas movies I always love, even if there’s about a gazillion other things that really wouldn’t be allowed in a movie these days.
This story, however has the set up of everything great – there’s deceipt, about to be be found out, a possibility of love, Christmas…
The Bishop’s Wife
Again, this is one of the oldies (so: hopefully goldies?) and the (very brief) synopsys sounds really amazing: “An angel in human form enters the life of a bishop in order to help him build a new cathedral and repair his fractured marriage.”
Nightmare before Christmas
This is such a classic, but for some reason I’ve just never gotten around to watching it. As a matter of fact – even though I want to watch it – I don’t even really know what this one is about? For now, though, I kind of want to keep it that way. Give myself the option of going in with an open mind, you know?
The Muppet Christmas Carol
I’ve watched so many versions of the Christmas Carol, and yet never this one. The Doctor Who-Christmas special, the Disney version. The Looney Tunes version and Ghost of Girlfriends Past. I honestly don’t even know why I’ve never seen this one, but there you have it. I just haven’t. And I will. I just know it. Some day 🙂
There’s actually a lot of other Christmas movies I’ve never seen. Elf and The Santa Clause, to just name a few. I’m not actually sure if I would like those too much, though. If you’ve any opinions, or other holiday films? Be sure to leave them down below!
