Favorite Christmas Movies

I am not much of a movie watcher. Really--ask anyone who knows me; I'm not.

But for some reason, I love Christmas movies. Maybe it's because the whole family sits down together to watch. Maybe it's because there always seems to be Christmas lights reflected in the TV screen. Maybe it's because most are uplifting and cheerful. Maybe it's a combination of all the above and more. All I know is that I love them.

So here's a "made up by me" meme for my readers. You can answer in the comments or on your blog and link back here, but please, DO answer! I'd love to see if you love the same ones I do or if there's one I've missed! Feel free to use TV specials--I did.

1. Favorite Black and White Christmas Movie

Lots of great choices. My favorite newer and animated film is definitely "The Happy Elf". It is a really cute story about an elf trying to bring Christmas to a town called Bluesville. And the dvd has lots of extras. You can check out the trailer at www.thehappyelf.com.
