My Top 5 Favorite Christmas Movies

We all have favorite movies and over the years my favorite Christmas movies have truly remained the same.  My top five favorites each have something the reflects the true spirit of the holiday to me.  Are any of these on your list?

Number 5:  Elf
The best lesson in this movie is to spread cheer and not just at the holidays. Buddy the Elf is quoted with saying, "The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear." Ever notice that if you are cheering loudly, spreading positivity, or even singing Christmas carols, the people around you can't help but to join in and "spread cheer"? I mean it's not easy to be cheerful, but if you have a positive attitude, it can be contagious.

Number 5:  Elf
Number 4:  The Santa Clause 
 I loved the message in this movie about dealing with what life throws at you. Tim Allen's character is thrown into being Santa Claus and it's not where or how he thought his life would go.  He took on the new twist to his life in a jolly manner.  Gotta take the good with the bad and make the most of it.

Number 4:  The Santa Clause 
Number 3: Annabelle's Wish 
 This movie was out of circulation for a bit and we were truly sad. We owned it on VHS, yes I said VHS. We no longer own a VCR and I just found out that it can be purchased on DVD! It first came out in 1997 and the girls were in elementary school.  We still talk about this movie and while we no longer have a VCR we wish this movie would be re-released. Annabelle's Wish is a heart-warming holiday story that tells the tale of a calf (Annabelle) and a trouble young boy (Billy). Billy hasn't spoken since he was in a fire accident. Annabelle has one wish to fly like one of Santa's reindeer. The two become fast friends. There is a farm legend that Santa gives voices to the animals for one day each year. This is a wonderful story of friendship and compassion. Annabelle's love for Billy moves her to make her wish for Billy to talk again. I won't spoil the ending but it's a movie that must be seen.

Number 2 :  It's a Wonderful Life 
This movie has it all for me - drama, intrigue, comedy, and romance. The main character, George (Jimmy Stewart) is set to move from his hometown when a family crisis occurs leaving him to stay. Throughout the movie you can see how life gets him down and then an angel, Clarence, shows him how life would be without him there. The movie captures the Christmas Spirit by displaying the joy of self-sacrifice, redemption, friendship, love, family, loyalty and commitment.

Number 2 :  It's a Wonderful Life 
...and my Number 1:  A Christmas Story  
From the time this movie came out, I have watched it every year. Something about this movie brings me back to my childhood and the anticipation of waiting for Christmas. Waiting to see if I was going to get THAT toy I wished for, prayed for, and asked Santa for. Just like Ralphie did trying his best to wish that Red Ryder BB gun into existence in his hands. This movie shows a typical family with typical issues. Ralphie is bothered by bullies in the movie, finds out that Santa isn't always jolly, and once he get the BB gun, he nearly shoots his own eye out. Kids can learn how to handle a bully by confronting them and they can learn what not to do - don't stick your tongue to the frozen flagpole. Side note: as a child I stuck my tongue on a froze railing....maybe that's why I can relate to this movie and love it so!
