I love Christmas. I always have. One of my favorite things about this time of year is all the classic movies that make up the season. I'll talk about a few of my personal favorites. While I like just about every Christmas film I've watched, these are three that I watch at least once during the season.
I first saw National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation when it opened in theaters back in December 1989. I was a junior in high school, and was already a fan of the original Vacation film and the followup European Vacation. It was a Friday night, and a friend of mine from work asked me if I wanted to go see it with her. Despite this being a "friends only" outing and her having a boyfriend, I was more than eager to go out and watch the movie.
My words will not do the film justice. I don't really do reviews, but I can tell you if you've never seen this Chevy Chase classic, watch it after you finish reading this blog. It's on Netflix right now, so you don't have to go buy it or try to rent it somewhere. Not only is it my favorite Christmas movie, but it's among my top picks for favorite movie EVER.

These are just a few of the reasons I love this film. And who can forget "Tis the season to be Merry." "Mary? That's my name." "No sh!t."
We love the movie so much, we've done two family Christmas cards based on the film. I'll actually be doing a blog on that Thursday, so look out for it (please) Last year for Christmas, I got a pair of Ralphie pajamas. But don't get excited, they're not the pink bunny kind.

My honorable mention go to Elf as it is one of the newer "classics" I enjoy watching. I still need to watch Christmas films like Miracle on 34th Street, It's a Wonderful Life, and Santa With Muscles. Yes, I said that in the same sentence, and I'm serious. Merry Christmas.
