Our Top 20 Holiday Movies

As the weather gets a bit cooler and the holiday season nears, I love nothing better than snuggling up with the kids to watch Holiday movies.

It’s high time for some Humble Bumble.

Over the years we have purchased several sets of movies and we love picking out one each day to watch and get us into the Holiday spirit.  Instead of having you waste time searching through Netflix or Amazon Prime, I’ve compiled a list (in no particular order) of our favorites (both old and new) to help you find movies the whole family will love.

Meet me in St Lois (1944)

Christmas in Connecticut (1945)

It’s a Wonderful Life (1946)

Miracle on 34th Street (1947)

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (1964)

Easter Eggs

We have a Friday movie night tradition in our house. Its origin is my own childhood. Growing up, Sunday nights meant popcorn, malts, and The Wonderful World of Disney. Recently, we watched Ready Player One for the fifth or twentieth time. I lose track.

It’s an amazing book (I couldn’t and didn’t put down) and a rock solid film adaptation. I’m pretty psyched for the sequel (novel & movie). If you haven’t read it or seen it, I’ll try not to deliberately give away too many spoilers.

Central to the plot of the story and movie is the Easter Egg. That theme shows up on many different levels. I love Easter Eggs. Which is why I take great joy in hearing my kids talk about or point out to their friends all the visual easter eggs I have shown them in the movie. I can die completely fulfilled knowing I have successfully created another generation of pop culture wonks.

One final note: We’re one week closer to an announcement and the game is afoot!
