Christmas is a mere 17 days away, can you believe it??? I certainly can't. I seemed like just yesterday when I celebrated my son's six birthday in May! But yes, the holiday season IS upon us and our thoughts turn to that special day and what makes it even more special for some of us. I'll be sharing my favourite Christmas movie over on Amy Corwin's Blog, but today, Rachel Brimble is here to tell us what movies make Christmas extra special for her...
Ahh, Christmas in front of the fire with a movie….
Is there anything better than the time comes when you know there is nothing more you can do to prepare for the big day??
I love that moment when I know I’ve bought all the presents and food, the decorations are up, the tree is looking beautiful, the cards have been sent – and all that is left, is waiting for Christmas Day. What I haven’t bought/send/ remembered now is just too bad!
And when that time comes, it is my family tradition to put on a movie and sit back with a glass of wine, the kids and hubby and enjoy…
My two absolute favorites that come on every year for as long as I remember are:
Miracle of 34th Street with Richard Attenborough
This movie just has everything! (And I cry every year without fail…)
The girl with the lisp and the huge eyes, the most perfect movie Father Christmas EVER and love rules triumphant – what more do you want in a Christmas message?
My daughters are just coming out of the age of believing in Father Christmas so I know this is probably my last year of the magical moment of watching their eyes wide in wonderment - there is nothing better in the whole world!
And then for hubby and me?? Total madness! We love putting the kids to bed the night before Christmas Eve and sitting up to watch….
National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation with Chevy Chase.
You either love it or hate it – I LOVE this movie!
You can’t help but laugh at the madness, the mayhem, the characters we all know and love, it’s just a great, great movie!
