festive flicks


 I've been having a hard time feeling the Christmas spirit the last few days.  I've overdosed on Christmas music and stressed out a little too much over things.  I haven't watched a single Christmas movie this year, and think that is in order now to brighten things up.  Some favorites:

1.  It's A Wonderful Life.  Almost obligatory...and everyone has seen it a hundred times.  But I adore this movie...everything about it. 
2.  White Christmas.  Danny Kaye.  Enough said.
3.  Love Actually.  Love indeed.
4.  The Holiday.  I don't know that I would love this quite as much if it weren't for the English countryside locale.  The cottage is right out of my dreams.
5.  My Favorite Wife.  Not technically a Christmas story, but one my sister introduced to me many years ago that I always watch at Christmas.  Witty, sarcastic, wonderful. 
6.  The Scarlet Pimpernel. A period love story is appropriate for any season, yes?  To the rescue!
7.  Serendipity.  My husband and I love this (only vaguely holiday-ish) movie.  If we were to have "our movie," this would be it.
8.  Joyeux Noel.  If you haven't seen this, you must.

These are all great, but I'd love some new ideas.  Anyone?
