Christmas Movie Date Nights

Devin and I have this tradition where we watch a Christmas on Thanksgiving night and almost every single night leading up to Christmas. It makes the evenings feel festive, and I love discussing which one on our list to watch.

You have to be in it to win it, though. Request the DVDs from the library, dig through that $5 bin at Walmart, check your local thrift store...Don't just approach this all casual like, "Let's check Netflix to see which ones they have" because I guarantee you'll be disappointed and end up spending $5 on OnDemand/Youtube/Wherever You Pay To Watch Movies and let me tell you, those $5's will add up quick.

So. If you're ready to gather your girlfriends for a Saturday movie night, or if you're going to try and watch 1 Christmas movie a day like us, here's the list: 

Favorites from when you were a kid: 
1. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
2. The Grinch That Stole Christmas
3. Home Alone 1
4. Home Alone 2
5. Home Alone 3
6. Disney's A Christmas Carol (Devin's pick. I hate this one)
7. Elf
8. Jingle all the Way

Newer Christmas Movies:
9. Office Christmas Party
10. Why Him?
11. A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas
12. The Night Before
13. Love Actually
14. Love the Coopers

The Randoms:
15. Fred Clause
16. Christmas With the Kranks
17. The Santa Clause
18. The Santa Clause 2
19. The Santa Clause 3
20. Trading Places
21. Dennis the Menace Christmas

22. A Christmas Story
23. It's A Wonderful Life (my family's Christmas Eve favorite!)

**Also, I would just like to point out for authenticity's sake that the coffee table I took these pictures on has my toddler's autograph all over it. In pen. And that mug doesn't have real coffee in it.

What movies would you add to this list? Which of these do you love (or hate!)?
