classics, yes?

stink. stank. stunk.

i was going to blog about some of the things i have done this week, but instead i would prefer to discuss movies. christmas movies, that is.

as i write this, a charlie brown christmas is on the boob tube and will i be reaching for the remote? hell, no! it’s one of the greatest holiday classics of all time.

while we all know the greats, consisting of it’s a wonderful life, miracle on 34th street, white christmas and our hometown fav, a christmas story, we also have seen more modern day films climbing there way into the classics category. this is starting to sound just like my holiday song post a couple weeks ago — sorry.

many friends and family members now consider elf one of their holiday favorites, and i must agree. will ferrell and his elftastic ways bring smiles and hearty laughter to the masses in this feel good flick.

one of my personal favorites has to be home alone, which always gets me into the spirit. oh, kevin mccallister…

and let’s not forget about the grinch. both the jim carey remake and original 1966 versions equally impress. you’re a mean one mr. grinch, but we still love you.

what is your fav holiday movie?

word of the day – fragile or fra-gee-lay
