“THIS CHRISTMAS” is hands down the most watched movie at our house this time of year. This is a BIG Hit every year…anytime of the year, even when we catch it on cable TV in the summer. My mom now has it on DVD so that she watch it ANYTIME!
I love that movie, and Gloria and I used to watch “Charlie Brown Christmas” and dance around the tree like the crew!
A Christmas Story is at the top. I love Miracle on 34th St and Home Alone (the original)
Home Alone is such a fun, laugh out loud movie – loved the first one. Merry Christmas Alana.
Yes, Miracle on 34th Street is a classic, love when Santa pops the store manager with his cane!
I am not a movie watcher or movie goer but I have seen bits n pieces of This Christmas & Miracle on 34th street. Merry Christmas Sis.
Yes, Miracle on 34th Street was on the other day and I missed it while hubby only half watched it – lol
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you my dear.
