"Thanksgiving Thursday" - 1 Week to Go - Movies

Well, here we are - 1 week from Thanksgiving.  I've heard from many of you that Thanksgiving is your favorite holiday also.  Whether you're traveling or staying put like we are, it should be a good day.

I promised this week would be about movies I want to watch after our meal's over.  So here are some of my favorite Christmas movies.  I'd love to hear of your favorites.  If we share favorites, I'd love to hear what you like about them.

The * means you can find it on Netflix Streaming.  ** = Amazon Prime Streaming

1st - *Christmas in Connecticut (1945 - B/W - Barbara Stanwyck)
I love the actor that plays "Uncle Felix".

2nd -  Miracle on 34th Street  (1947 - B/W or Colorized - Maureen O'Hara)
A "must see" for me on Thanksgiving Day.
 3rd - White Christmas (1954 - Bing Crosby, Rosemary Clooney)
Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye play war buddies turned entertainers who fall for two sisters.  The boys follow the girls to a resort owned by their former commanding officer, and he's in danger of losing the place.
4th - Christmas Town (2008 - Nicole de Boer, Patrick Muldoon)
"In a town totally consumed with the Christmas spirit Liz, her son Mason and her father Jack discover the magic and healing of the true Christmas spirit."
5th - The Holiday (2006 - Kate Winslet, Cameron Diaz, Jude Law, jack Black)
It's sweet, fun, a Christmas view from California and England.  I love the ending!

6th - Last - for my husband, Bill - his favorite... A Christmas Story (1983)
He loves it for so many reasons.  (smile)

Hope to hear from you with your favorites before Thanksgiving so I can add to my list.  Thanks for stopping by!  Reia

This is a really good list. I absolutely love Winter Holiday stories! My absolute favorite, though is "It's a Wonderful Life." I have to watch that every year. It is such a beautiful love story, while it also reminds you to appreciate what you have.

The first three are always my favorites. Last year my new favorites were The Christmas Child & Holiday in Handcuffs. This year I'm enjoying Christmas Town. I hadn't seen it in awhile. It's whimsical and heart warming.

Thanks for your comment! Reia
