My Sixth Thursday Thirteen


In keeping with a Christmas theme for this last Thursday Thirteen before Christmas, I decided to do the Christmas movie thing.

MY THIRTEEN FAVORITE CHRISTMAS MOVIES



White Christmas (1954) - I loved THE MUSIC!!!





A Chipmunk Christmas (1981) - again, what kid that grew up in the 80's and didn't like A Chipmunk Christmas?






Christmas With the Kranks (2004) - even though Tim Allen drives me nuts, I loved this movie.





Home Alone (1990) - I always wished my parents would go on a vacation and forget me, so I could harrass some criminals.





Meet Me In St. Louis (1945) - obviously because I love Judy Garland AND St. Louis!





Prancer (1989) - I loved the story!





Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (1964) - I've always loved Rudolph, I adore that darn reindeer.






A Christmas Carol (1951) - what a story!






The Bells of St. Mary's (1945) - just a pretty movie!






A Christmas Story (1983) - what kid that grew up in the 80's didn't love this movie? "You'll shoot your eye out kid"!





Christmas Vacation (1989) - that poor cat!






Elf (2003) - "he's an angry elf" - maybe he's a south pole elf!






How the Grinch Stole Christmas (1966) - he he, that was a funny one.

Love them all! Especially number one. I know every song by heart and the end always makes me cry, but in a good way.
Happy Thursday and thanks for visiting!

Rashenbo said...

Great list... although, ELF is not one of my favorites! :)

Scrooged should totally be on your list! :)

Happy TT and Happy Holidays! Thanks for visiting my blog.

Candy Minx said...

Great list! I have got to watch White Christmas someday. I don't think I've ever seen it. Thanks for stopping my my TT.

Airam said...

All classic movies!! Thanks for checking out my list!

Melissa said...

Love your list! Christmas Story is the best!

Laura said...

we are all about watching christmas movies right now and i see you have quite a few that are already in our family's collection.
my tt is up.

Missy said...

I love the the 1951 version of A Christmas Carol and the 1966 animated Grinch is the best ever! I'd add Holiday Inn, Scrooged and Love Actually to the list.

The Mistress of the Dark said...

The original Grinch is the best! I'm adding Love Actually to the list too :)

Happy TT and thanks for stopping by my place

Merry Christmas

Chickadee said...

Hehe. I LOVE A Christmas Story. That is one of my all time favorite movies! Ralphie reminds me of my husband. :)

My 13 are up.

JohnH985 said...

I like White Christmas too, but I think I prefer Holiday Inn more. No It's A Wondeful Life? I have to admit that I am probably one of the few people in the world that does not like Home Alone.

My 13 is up.

Le laquet said...

I love White Christmas and Meet me in St Louis and the Grinch who stole Christmas and .... yes, I'm a big Christmas film fan. Sit me down after Christmas lunch (and the Queen's speech) and turn on a film :o)

JAM said...

I love all of these, but haven't seen The Chipmunks or The Kranks.

I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas!

Christine said...

Christmas with the Kranks is hilarious, so is #11. Of Course #13 which is an all time favorite.
Great list.
Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas.

amy said...

I love them all! but won't have that much time for movies :(

Teehee. I love Home Alone!! And we just watched the Santa Clause 2, starring Tim Allen. Not too shabby.

Sunflower said...

Great list. I might pick some to watch during Christmas!

Happy TT!

Norma said...

I've seen a lot of these, but haven't thought of Bells of St. Mary's in years. Great Memories.

Thanks for visiting my TT.

Duchess said...

Oh, I forgot about the Bells of St. Mary's. What a great movie. Now I wish we had a few snow days and I could just snuggle up and watch the holiday movies.
Great list!

Lori Madison said...

I remember watching A Christmas story in school and I thought it was the funniest thing. I just recently saw white Christmas and the Grinch will always be a favorite. Have a wonderful holiday...

MelnHead said...

White Christmas is my absolute favorite. :) Happy TT and Merry Christmas also!

I absolutely LOVED White Christmas and Meet Me in St. Louis. In fact, I like almost all these movies. There are a couple I haven't seen though.
Merry Christmas.

Tink said...

I love Christmas movies, especially the old ones and the animated.
My TT is about Yule.

scooper said...

My daughter has been watching the Chipmunk's Christmas movie for two weeks. I used to like the movie, now I'm just praying for someone to end my pain. Great list.

Cheeky said...

The Bells of St. Marys!!! I saw that about 2 years ago, I came in after the beginning - it was on A&E I think - anyway I loved the movie but never knew the name of it!

Merry Christmas!

Ann M. said...

great list! I used to have the Chipmunks Christmas soundtrack on record....wow do I feel old all of a sudden.

Becky said...

I need to rent some of those that I haven't seen and the others I have seen. Make it a Christmas movie marathon day! Merry Christmas!

Angela/SciFiChick said...

White Christmas is my all-time favorite.

Annie said...

A Christmas Story is truly a classic! If I were to add to this list, I'd say The Bishop's Wife.

Happy TT and have a Merry Christmas!

Sparky Duck said...

I didnt realize Meet me in St Louie was a Christmas movie. And I always try to fast forward through the cat part, yes im silly.

Starrlight said...

Great list although I'd have to have Holiday Inn and Wonderful Life!

mistihollrah said...

Great list! I have not seen White Chrstmas and I'm going to have to rent that one today!

I'm in MO too-Columbia!

Ma said...

Great movie list! The Bells Of Saint Mary's and White Christmas are 2 of my favorites, movies from my generation. And both by Bing Crosby another favorite entertainer of mine.
Happy Holidays!

Mine are up too.

Lindsey said...

I have seen almost all of them! I look forward to the Christmas Story marathon on TBS every year.

Janene said...

Great list! I made my husband watch White Christmas with me this year...I think it was torture for him! I love that movie, though. I got it in a box set with It's a Wonderful Life ~ not one of my all time favorites...but I guess it's a classic. :)

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

Amanda said...

Great movie list. I love christmas movies. Happy TT and Merry Christmas!

Amy Ruttan said...

I did a TT like that a couple of weeks ago. I know it's just not Christmas without A Christmas Story, National Lampoon, The Grinch and White Christmas.

I also remember one with Dudley Moore who took over Santa's Job and made shoddy toys. I can't remember the name. It was a good one too. Happy TT and Happy Holidays.

practicalchick said...

Thanks for stopping by. You need some pop corn to go with all those movies.

I think I watched it during Christmas when I was a kid but I don't think it was a Christmas movie per se... I remember watching a Chipmunks movie where they find their mom.

BeccaLynn said...

I really enjoy that movie, but always have to cover my eyes for the "frzen tongue" scene.

Cheryl said...

I love A Christmas Story! It's such a classic. ;)

Turnbaby said...

LOL

Great list

I watch as much of the "24 hours of A Christmas Story" as possible. Annoys the hell out of the DH.

Christmas Vacation is one of my favorite movies. I think i have the whole thing memorized.

Thanks for stopping by my TT!

N. Mallory said...

I love White Christmas and Meet Me in St. Louis! I haven't rebought them as DVDs yet. I think I might have to stop somewhere and fix that problem on my way home. Thanks for reminding me!

Happy TT!

Di said...

I am personally avoiding the obligatory Christmas blog just to be contrary! I did a Thanksgiving blog.

angela said...

A Christmas Carol is my all time fave movie...I like the one you had and the musical...Didn't like the Bill Murray one, though...

erica said...

Ooh great list!! I love the grinch, home alone & rudolph - I haven't seen the rest if you can believe that! :)

Happy TT & Merry Christmas!

Sophisticated Writer said...

I love "Home alone". It's such a warm funny movie. Happy TT!

busy91 said...

I have seen a lot of these. I just saw "Meet Me in St. Louis" at the suggestion of someone and I loved it! It is one of my new favs.

Rene said...

A Christmas Story is one of my all time favorite movies :) The Old Man cracks me up.

Love White Christmas, Rudolph, and A Christmas Carol! And the old animated Grinch. :-)

Terra said...

A Christmas Story (1983) - what kid that grew up in the 80's didn't love this movie? "You'll shoot your eye out kid"!

What can I say, except I totally agree!!!
