Christmas movies are something I always look forward to and this year is no exception. With finals over and I am on now on break, I have enjoyed the Christmas classics to no end. Here are my top five favorites.
1. White Christmas

What can I say? This beautiful movie has enchanted me for years. The fact that it is a musical and a Christmas movie with endearing Bing Crosby, hilarious Danny Kaye, thoughtful Rosemary Clooney, and exuberant Vera-Ellen makes it my favorite holiday film of all time. I love watching the magical and enchanting scenes that are filled with songs, dances, and mischief.
2. It's A Wonderful Life
I have several happy memories associated with this one. From watching it on a quiet, frosty afternoon with my cousins to gathering around the fire and enjoying it with friends, I adore this special Jimmy Stewart classic. It is the perfect combination of humor, drama, and Christmas joy. The story of a man who wishes for adventure yet is restrained by duty is one that causes the viewer to think about the meaning of one's own life in a new way.
3. Miracle on 34th Street
This one, of course, is the best movie to watch to prove the existence of Santa Claus. Kris Kringle, the Santa Claus in this film, is amazing and an absolute dream come true. He is thoughtful, wise, funny, kind, and compassionate to all the poor lost souls who do not believe in the magic of Santa Claus and Christmas.
4. A Charlie Brown Christmas
Another staple from my childhood Christmases, A Charlie Brown Christmas is simply splendid with its flawed, human, and unforgettable characters and stories. Literally anyone can watch it and fall in love with it; it is not only for kids. I still watch it with my family at least one a year before Christmas. Plus, Snoopy steals the show with his awesome dancing.
Obviously, a list like this would not be complete without the movie treasure Elf. This hilarious and heartwarming Christmas comedy provides many joys and laughs. The elf Buddy definitely knows what to do for an adventurous and exciting day when he says,"First we'll make snow angels for two hours, then we'll go ice skating, then we'll eat a whole roll of Tollhouse cookie dough as fast as we can and then we'll snuggle."

These Christmas movies are some of my favorites and I hope that you can enjoy them as well. Merry Christmas!
