Pink Saturday

Today's Pink Mission~Share your favorite Christmas movie. How in the WORLD am I suppose to pick just one?! So I've narrowed the movies down to catagories...


When I'm in the mood for nostalgia I go for one of these favorite classic movies...

Christmas In Connecticut
White Christmas
Miracle On 34th Street
It's A Wonderful Life
 Little Women

The Modern Era

When I'm in the mood for a modern take and some good Christmas eyecandy I watch one of these...

A Christmas Story
The Santa Clause 1&2
Home Alone 1&2
Mrs. Clause
Love Actually
Polar Express
Smokey Mountain Christmas
This Christmas

The Funnies

When a Christmas giggle is in order I go for one of these...

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
Christmas With The Kranks
Deck The Halls

The Bad Bad Christmas Indulgance...

Bad Santa

Okay. I admit it. I occasionally watch this grubby, but somehow pathetically funny piece of Christmas cheer. Billy Bob is just too good at playing this drunken loser Santa. I don't know why, maybe I should be ashamed of myself.

Honorable Mention

Four Christmases
Now I am generally a cheerful person, but rarely does anything make me laugh out loud (other than the Man Cub), especially not movies. However Four Christmases has a scene where a baby spits up all over Reece Whitherspoon, it's what you would call projectile spit up. If you're not expecting it, and even when you are, it is TOO  TOO funny. Vince Vaughn's reaction is just as hilarious and cracks me up every time.
It's priceless in my opinion. The rest of the movie has some other funny moments but some sad
ones too, mirroring the modern day split family/separate Christmases.

Now do you see what I mean about just choosing one? How could I possibly. It might have something to do with being a Gemini and having split personalities. If I absolutely HAD to choose one and only one movie to watch it would probably be A Christmas Story. I just can't resist Ralphie.

And he's in PINK.

Happy Pink Saturday and thank you Beverly for hosting! You can find all the pink participants at
How Sweet The Sound. Join us for the pink party and Happy Holidays!

Clap, clap, clap...I feel like I've been to the movies with you!

My dear Sares, you've been with me through my whole history of blogging and above all, I appreciate your kindness and your cheerleader spirit. I needed that pick me up! Did you see the comment an anonymous person left me today? It was well spoken of a orge and what I thought was ugly, turned out kind.

Shaking off the felt a bit like an avalanche.

Onward we go...Dancer, Prancer and Vixin!

Those are all great movies. I love the classics the most. But the new ones too. When I was a little girl... a million years ago. I stuck my tongue on a frozen swing set. I was able to breath it unthawed. Ha!

Donnie said...

Wow I think you covered about all the Christmas movies. Great job. Have a wonderful Pink Saturday.

Hi Sares,

Thank you for sharing all your favourite Christmas movies.
Always so neat to sit down and watch a movie that gives you a warm and happy feeling.
You can't beat National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, for a laugh.

Hope that you are having a happy weekend

Cute post, cousin! I love all your movie favorites. Just watched It's A Wonderful Life last night, and then going to start Love Actually right now. Do you have A Smoky Mountain Christmas, if so can I borrow it? I don't think I've seen that one.
