On Holiday Movies

I’m not a fan of the holiday season at all, but there are some classic holiday movies I simply love. Home Alone is probably the one everyone thinks of, and it’s high on my list, but there’s at least one movie that sits above it. Can you guess it?

No. Probably not.

The Nightmare Before Christmas.

I’m not a fan of Tim Burton, but this movie is just perfect. Better than any of his more recent work, in my opinion. There are a few other holiday movies I find enjoyable, but this one is my all-time favorite. Easily.

What’s your favorite holiday movie?

Have a nice day off work today.

  1. A great choice for a Christmas movie – we watch ‘Nightmare’ pretty much every year (though as my other half is an animator, I think we’re a bit biased when it comes to animations – we own a lot!)
    Other family traditions in this house – Muppet Christmas Carol and It’s a Wonderful Life. It’s a Wonderful Life is rather sentimental, I guess, a bit old fashioned – but there’s nothing like the moment when James Stewart is up against it, he’s seen how awful Bedford Falls would’ve been without him, he’s standing on the bridge, crying ‘Please let me live again!’ into the darkness.
    Redemptive, heartfelt – Fantastic!


  2. I didn’t watch The Nightmare Before Christmas until last Christmas, I’m so late to the party. I love it and I’m gutted I didn’t see it sooner!
