{Friday Five}

One of our very best family friends swears that you can't celebrate Christmas until Thanksgiving is over (so please don't tell him I watched "Elf" the Tuesday before Thanksgiving). Well, now that it's officially after Thanksgiving, it seems it's about time to compile a list of my favorite holiday films. 

1. Holiday Inn
What a classic. Great songs, great dancing and a ton of fun to watch with your grandparents!

2. Elf
"SANTA?! I KNOW HIM!" Need I say more? 

3. The Santa Clause
An oldie, but goodie. This 90's classic had me wishing I was an elf throughout elementary school. 

4. A Charlie Brown Christmas/How The Grinch Stole Christmas
I put these together because my family usually watches them together. They're both shorter films, which makes them easy to squeeze in on a night you don't want to stay up too late. 

5. It's a Wonderful Life
I don't think it would feel like Christmas without this movie. When I was younger I hated it, but now that I'm older, I appreciate the message much more.

Those are the top five, but I promise there are a ton other that could've made the cut. I love watching holiday films because they truly makes the holiday season feel alive. I'd like to start a holiday challenge for anyone who'd like to watch some feel-good Christmas movies, just to make sure we make the most of this extra-quick holiday season we've been dealt!

If you celebrate something other than Christmas, please feel free to partake as well, these movies are great - I promise! Or, please direct me to a holiday film you love to watch with your family so I can pass it along to mine as well. The holiday season is meant for love and appreciation, so no matter what your celebration might be, let's celebrate them all!

xxo, Kristen
