Merry Christmas, ya filthy animal...

So I've said this before, but Christmas isn't exactly my favorite holiday. There really isn't one reason why, just seems like a lot of stress for 2 days. I, personally, like the family time more than the presents. Of course, getting new things is awesome and all, but the food and mostly the dranks are really my favorite part of Christmas.

But today, I'd like to talk about holiday movies. Chelsee and Christine are doing an awesome linkup called Christmas is in the Air. Last week we shared our Holiday Gift Guide, and there is a different topic for the next 2 weeks, too. Check out their blogs to get the deets.

I wouldn't say I had a favorite holiday movie, but we have a few that are on repeat throughout the entire Christmas season. They're all your old favorites. Well...kinda.

The first one stays on a loop from the moment it comes on Christmas Eve night through the entire marathon ending Christmas night. I can recite the entire thing in my sleep.

A CHRISTMAS STORY

Now, this is more a Mike thing that one that I actually like. Truthfully, I usually dread when it comes on because I know it's the only thing I'm going to be watching for the next 24 hours. When I said i can recite it in my sleep I'm not lying. I dream it, and usually find myself involved in A Christmas Story in my dreams. 

Home Alone...
allllll of them..

Who can go through the Christmas season without watching these?? I mean truthfully it's unAmerican. Pretty sure I've seen them so much I feel like Kevin is a part of my family. I wish i could have the balls to take on 2 robbers all by my lonesome. Get it Kev!!

And finally...my favorite of all time.
The Polar Express

Growing up, we used to read The Polar Express before bed every single Christmas Eve. We would read through it once and then listen to the guy talking on the tape. It was so cool and a tradition I hope to continue with my children. Last year, Mike got The Polar Express in 3D for me. I can't wait to watch it in the theater this year!!!

Now it's your turn!! Go link up for Christmas is in the Air!!
