I know there’s a sweet list of classic films ready for a holiday spirit! Maybe this hasn’t always been a big part of Christmas traditions; but, it’s certainly apart of mine.
Here’s a little secret, every year, on Thanksgiving, I watch a very special movie. It’s one my sisters and I watched multiple times, growing up. It’s a film, set in 1944.. In a grand city of St. Louis, Missouri ❤️ I absolutely adore Judy Garland’s role. Rose is the sophisticated, exquisite, and classy older sister. I love the whole movie; but, I love the feelings of nostalgia that it brings, even more.
This version is my favorite. You can buy or rent it, right from YouTube.
Now, in terms of my sweet girls, How The Grinch Stole Christmas is their favorite.
As you can see, it was our movie to kick off Thanksgiving.
Other families enjoy the classic Rudolph the Red Nose Raindeer, Frosty the Snowman, The Christmas Story, or The Night Before Christmas.
Even movies such as Home Alone, Elf, Mission Impossible, and The Christmas Cottage have appeared on the list of must-watch.
What movie is it for you? Do you have a special one that begins every holiday season? Do you gather your family around the TV and watch together? Does a particular movie come to mind when you think of growing up?
The memories are the gold in this life. Our riches are of all that can’t be seen. Take time to sit and enjoy one you love.
With Love and Light,
