What are your favorite holiday movies?
My favorite may not be on your list. When my wife and I first started dating, it was a long distance romance. She lived in Brooklyn and worked in Manhattan and I lived here in Dallas. We got together in one city or the other frequently on weekends, but that left many nights apart in between.
One of the ways we closed that gulf of time and space between us was to watch DVDs at the same time. A movie we discovered both of us already owned before we started dating was “Love Actually,” and it was one of our first dates! Chatting via IM we hit play simultaneously.
So what’s your favorite holiday movie or TV show? For some reason, I find many Christmas films make great date movies for parents. Here are a few that many people say are their favorites. What did I leave off this list you recommend we watch together after the kiddos are asleep?
- It’s a Wonderful Life
- White Christmas
- Miracle on 34th Street
- A Christmas Story
- How the Grinch Stole Christmas
- The Polar Express
- A Christmas Carol
- The Santa Clause
- Christmas Vacation
- A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas (just kidding)
