Last year my family started a tradition that in reality had been going strong for a few years. Its just that last year we finally realized it!
We like to watch Christmas movies together and so we've started collecting them. The challenge is getting all of those movies scheduled in the few days between Thanksgiving and New Years Eve along with all the other activities that fill that time of year. If I'm being completely honest, its also a great excuse to eat the homemade popcorn my husband whips up. (Thanks Whirly Pop!)
Last night we were talking about actually filling out a calendar so that we can fit them all in. Also, I'm hopeful that if its "calendar official," the kids will want to invite their friends over too. I can dream, right?
Anyway, we started listing off the titles we wanted to be sure to include. White Christmas, Miracle on 34th Street and It's a Wonderful Life for the classics, and then Home Alone, Christmas Vacation and Elf for 'newer' fare.
Christmas Story is the Christmas Day choice, but other than that, the scheduling is up in the air.
As is the fate of Die Hard.
50% of the family has decided it's a Christmas flick and the others say no.
What do YOU say? Is Die Hard a Christmas movie? What is your favorite Holiday flick?
