" Is your house on fire, Clark?"

9:55:00 AM

The second Thanksgiving is over I go into complete Christmas mode
{Okay confession, even before Thanksgiving is over I have been known to dive into Christmas}

Anyway, one of my FAVORITE things to do is curl up on my couch {with or without Andrew, he really isn't the "let's sit and watch Christmas movies all night" type of guy} and have a marathon, of what I would consider to be the best Christmas movies out there.

Instead of just sharing an arbitrary list with you all I have put together my list along with some clips and trailers from the movies!

Here are my top ten... Enjoy!!! :)

1. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation: Now I don't know about you but this is the funniest movie in my opinion. I will watch this one upwards of five or six times before Christmas comes, maybe even more. Just can't help it. **a little warning, if you haven't seen this movie I wouldn't go blaring this clip around an office or little kids, it's funny sure but for the adults in the house :)**

2. White Christmas: All around just a classic movie. We watch this every year at my parents house while decorating the tree. I can probably quote the whole thing, it never gets old!

3. Santa Clause is Coming to Town: I don't care how old you are this is just a great Christmas movie and the songs are just so darn catchy. I used to have this on VHS but a few years back I went out and bought a whole collection of old Christmas movies on DVD {including this one} so that my future kiddos will be able to watch it!

4. RENT: I don't know why I just associate this movie with Christmas. Maybe I am the only one, and I'm okay with that!

5. ELF: Do I really need to explain why this is on the list?!

6. Miracle on 34th Street: This version is my absolute favorite!

7. The Santa Clause: Every single one of these movies are amazing. I just really enjoy this scene from the first one :)

8. It's a Wonderful Life: Growing up this was always my Dad's FAVORITE Christmas movie so we all were forced to watch it even if we didn't want to. Today I am glad that we did, I absolutely love everything about this movie!!

9. The Family Stone: Now I couldn't find a great clip that I wanted to share so the trailer will just have to do. I have already watched this movie twice and intend on watching it many more times. This has instantly became a staple in my Christmas movie list

10. Fred Claus: Vince Vaughn is hilarious and made me absolutely fall in love with this movie.

I could go on and on but I think these top ten will suffice for now :)
