Today I am linking up with Mix and Match Mama and Little Bit of Everything for their fun "Stranded" series! Today's topic is a FUN one! Christmas movies! If we were stranded what would be want to watch?? Here's my holiday round up! What are your favorite Christmas movies?
1. The Holiday: I adore this movie. I remember seeing it in theaters and I've loved it ever since. It's one of those movies I have seen so many times and I never get sick of it. I love all 4 of the cast mates and the coziness of Kate Winslet's English cottage mixed with Cameron Diaz's LA vibe makes the perfect match up. This movie has such a sweet message and both gals end up with their guys, new friends, and a better sense of self. It's delightful and.....I think I'll watch it right now.

2. Love Actually: This movie is a CLASSIC! There have been many others through the years that tried to replicate that "there's a huge cast of famous people and there are a billion story lines going on but they are all connected somehow" thing, but this one takes the cake. I love Hugh Grant in this one (I love Hugh Grant in anything) and I love that this movie can be sappy, sweet, adorable, but also real and take on some challenging topics too. "If you look for it, love really is all around." Gah! Just love love love it!
3. The Grinch (The Original): I appreciate the new Grinch (Baby Grinch is the cutest thing ever) and Faith Hill's "Where Are You Christmas?" from that movie is one of my favorite holiday tunes, but in my opinion, you cannot beat the original cartoon version. Maybe because I distinctly remember watching this in my holiday PJ's on the couch as a kid, or maybe because it's the "last day of school before Christmas break" classroom film of choice, but it doesn't quite seem like Christmas until I've had my Grinch fix. I know it's cheesy, but I always tear up when the Grinch's heart grows....Christmas is magic!
So pop some popcorn, make some cocoa, light a Christmas-y candle, and snuggle up with a Christmas movie. Tis the season!
