Favorite Christmas Movies

My top three Christmas movies in no particular order ...
  • The Nativity Story :: Many scenes moved me at a deep level and engaged me emotionally. Watching Joseph tell Mary that he believed her and would be a father to Jesus was spectacular. Check out my review here.
  • It's a Wonderful Life :: I loved how a man's quiet life of charitable living was vindicated by angelic visitation. The last scene is one of my favorites of all time.
  • A Christmas Carol :: The transformation of Scrooge at the end of the movie is a great scene. Would that we all have such dreams of angelic visitation.
Some of the other Christmas movies I like are: Home Alone; Trading Places; and National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. What are your top three Christmas movies?

  1. There were so many scenes in the Nativity that moved me deeply. The one you mentioned is one, and though the Bible doesn't tell us this scene, when Mary washes the tired dirty feet of Joseph, the love jumped off the screen, and you knew Mary truly loved and trusted this man.

    1. I think that the Finney version is my favorite too Alice.

  3. A Charlie Brown Christmas is one of my favorites, but probably more for Vince Guaraldi's music in it. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation is another one, it actually might be my favorite of all the vacation films. I really like Bill Murray's Scrooged, too, for a modern take on A Christmas Carol.

  4. I have several favorites: It's a Wonderful Life is at the top of my list. I like White Christmas and Miracle on 34th St. too!
