1) The Santa Clause

Starring Tim Allen as Scott Calvin. Scott becomes Santa after the former Santa falls off his roof! He gets fat, grows a long white beard, and has to learn his way around the North Pole! This is my favorite Christmas movie!


2) The Santa Clause 2

In the second one, Scott has to find a wife to be his Mrs. Claus! I don't want to spoil too much but there may or may not be a Christmas cover of a Shania Twain song!


3) The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause

Of course, you have to complete the trilogy! After finding Mrs. Claus, Scott has to defeat Jack Frost to save Christmas, while also preparing to become a father!


4) Home Alone

One of the greatest Christmas movies of all time! I'm not even going to explain it! If you haven't seen it...go watch it!! If you have seen it, go watch it again!


5) Home Alone 2: Lost in New York

Same as the first one...GO WATCH IT!


6) Home Alone 3

Not as good as the first two because they changed the actors, but you can give it a shot just to finish the series!


7) ELF

"It's Buddy the elf, whats your favorite color?" You can learn so much from this movie, especially about the 4 main food groups! Don't be a cotton headed ninny muggins and go check out this awesome movie!


8) The Ultimate Christmas Present

Just an old throwback Disney Channel Movie! This is a cute movie about two girls trying to make it snow for the holiday! It gets forgotten about but definitely worth the watch!


9) A Christmas Story

This movie plays for 24 hours during Christmas Eve and Christmas! You can learn some valuable lessons from this movie, like don't stick your tongue to a frozen pole or that you'll shoot your eye out!


10) Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer

Had a very shiny nose! One of the best Christmas movies there is! You have to love Hermey the elf who doesn't want to make toys! And we love watching Rudolph save the day when it is too foggy out for Santa to deliver the toys!


11) Fred Claus

A story about Santa Claus' older brother who hates Christmas but comes to help his brother save the day for all of the girls boys!


12) Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas

This movie is a great example of how love and togetherness is more important than material things. So instead of making dinner plans with yourself and wallowing in self pity, go out and enjoy your time with loved ones! Maybe your heart will grow three sizes too!


13) The Nightmare Before Christmas

Is it a Christmas movie or is it a Halloween movie? The world may never know the answer but who cares! It's a great movie that should be watched all year round! Although it's a little less Christmassy when Sandy Claws is kidnapped!


14) Deck The Halls

A very cute movie about two neighbors battling it out to see who will have the brightest Christmas lights! All they want it to be able to see their houses from space! Can they do it?


15) Miracle on 34th Street

A classic Christmas movie, especially for the kids! Susan, a young girl and a lawyer have to help Santa and bail him out of jail to save Christmas!


16) Bad Santa

Definitely not kid friendly, but a very funny movie! Starring Billy Bob Thorton as a mall Santa that robs the mall!


17) Four Chritmases

A great movie for people who spend the Holiday traveling back and forth between houses! The holidays can be very busy, but this movie serves as another great reminder that the holidays are about who you're spending time with. Also, who needs an excuse to watch a Reese Witherspoon movie?!


18) Christmas With the Kranks

When parents decide to cancel Christmas due to their daughters absence, they have to scramble to buy a tree, decorate the house, and get presents when she unexpectedly comes home! Although their plans changed, they were happy to be together as a family!


19) The Polar Express

A great Christmas movie for kids! The movie takes us on a journey to the North Pole while riding the Polar Express! It is also a great book! Don't forget to listen for the bells!


20) National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

Join the Griswold family for a wacky holiday! This movie is a great example that at the even when all the plans go wrong, at the end of the day the holidays are about spending time with family and having a few good laughs.

And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.

What Christmas Means To Me: An Atypical Prayer

You are where my life began and continues to grow, and the love is always unconditional, never ending, and felt as soon as you walk in the door.

This last Christmas, my grandfather gave me the opportunity to write the grace and prayer that is read before Christmas Dinner. Though it may not sound much like a typical prayer or a traditional grace, it sounded a little something like this:

"When I think of Christmas, I think of this moment right here. The one where we are all gathered together, bound together by love in a place where so many memories have been made. It’s the time that we get to spend together that makes Christmas so special, not the presents, not the food (though it is delicious and I’ll never say no to another one of Grandma’s cookies), but instead the bond that we continue to strengthen each and every year when we come together.

So this Christmas, I am thankful to be surrounded by a family that loves me. As I said in an article of mine that came out earlier this week, “never is the love in my house one-sided”, and that rings true here today. God has given us this holiday not only to celebrate Christ’s birth but also to remind us that the love of this family is never one-sided. It reminds us how special this family is, and how lucky we are to have one another.

I could not ask for better people to have in my life. I could not ask for better grandparents to teach me so many life lessons and to be there whenever I needed someone to turn to, parents that raised me into the strong, independent, and loving young woman that I am today, and a sister that I’ve become so much closer to this year and am proud to call my best friend. I could not ask for a better aunt and uncle that have never failed to make me feel loved and are always there to support me in everything that I do, and cousins that always take time to make sure I’m ok and give life advice that has helped shape who I am as I grow up. I could not ask for better little boys to be my little boys and bring joy and laughter to my life, and a dog that makes me happy to come home and I can always count on for kisses.

Christmas is my favorite holiday, but not for the reasons many people may think. It’s not because of the presents, or the cookies (though I do love them so please make as many as you can Grandma), but because of the love, I get to experience on this day. Family is where life starts and the love never ends, and in this family, this rings true. You are where my life began and continues to grow, and the love is always unconditional, never-ending, and felt as soon as you walk in the door.

Merry Christmas, I love you all with all my heart."

Christmas may be over, but the words in this prayer still ring true. Though people change and every holiday is different in its own way, these words will forever ring true.
