My Christmas Watchlist

12/04/2015 Laura Watkins 4 Comments

You might be surprised by which movies make my Christmas Watchlist. Beside the traditional movies like It's a Wonderful Life, White Christmas, A Christmas Story, Miracle on 34th Street, and the other Christmas specials that are always popular, my list is...let's just say a bit eclectic. And oh so fun! :) 

One of the funniest movies ever made and probably the most quoted in my family!



With beautiful costumes and witty dialogue, and a swoon-worthy romance, Emma is one of my favorite Jane Austen movies (and not too off from the book).


White Christmas is a given, but many have never even heard of its predecessor, Holiday Inn. This Irving Berlin musical features Bing Crosby, Fred Astaire, and Marjorie Reynolds in magical song and dance numbers and a romantic comedy in which the song "White Christmas" made its original debut.

If you haven't seen this movie yet, your life is incomplete.







Despite many things I don't like about this movie, it's Michael Keaton and Michelle Pfeiffer. Period.




This was one of the first BBC shows that won my heart. Based on the 1855 Victorian novel North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell, North & South is a must watch! (Not to mention that it stars Richard Armitage. Enough said.)




This lovely Jimmy Stewart classic was the inspiration for the next movie on our list:








It might seem like a bit of a stretch, but it really does take place during the holidays and goes on my list!

    1. Well, I'm going to have to watch a movie a night now! White Christmas is my personal fave - but now I'll have to check out Holiday Inn. I've heard of it, never watched it, and didn't know it was a predecessor to White Christmas.

      1. You'll love it! There are a few songs in it you'll recognize as well. After I watched it the first time, I noticed they reused more than one song from Holiday Inn in White Christmas.

    2. I love Little Women, Beauty and the Beast, and Elf for holiday movies aside from like Frosty and Rudolph, etc. I'm also a fan of Die Hard cause it's an awesome one for the holiday. =) There are others, but not coming to me at the moment.
