Best Christmas Movies
We got four weeks to celebrate Christmas together! So we’re going to kick it off this week.
I consider myself a Christmas expert. So to get the season rolling- here’s my list of best Christmas movies ever.
1) It’s a Wonderful Life
This might just be the greatest movie ever. Watch and be inspired.
2) The Muppets Christmas Carol
Yes, they’re hand puppets, but they show the heart and warmth of Christmas inside this adaptation.
3) Home Alone 2: Lost in New York
Better than the original, and Joe Pesci is still amazing. We might talk about more later, but that should be enough to get you started.
