When snow covers the streets, holiday lights brighten the trees and Santa-themed apparel is included in your bedtime wardrobe, you know that Christmas is in the air!
Another glorious sign that the Old St. Nick is creeping around the corner is when your evenings are filled with watching your favorite holiday films! I love turning on the television to see a lineup of classic holiday movies waiting for me—each bringing happy memories, valuable life lessons or a playlist of carols I can sing along with. (It’s simply marvelous.)
To spread some cinematic holiday cheer around the office, I asked my fellow BMSDers what their favorite holiday flicks were. Of course, they didn’t disappoint. (And now I want to watch all of these movies.)
Becka and Kris: National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
“Surprised Eddie? If I woke up tomorrow with my head sewn to the carpet, I wouldn’t be more surprised than I am right now.”
Rachel: Love Actually
“But the truth is, I’m in love and I was before she died, and there’s nothing I can do about it.”
Sonni: Four Christmases
“I helped you come up with this when you were drunk and came home from the bar last Thursday.”
(Sonni said it was basically any line from the Taboo scene…so I chose one for her.)
Fred: National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
“Is your house on fire, Clark?”
“No, Aunt Bethany, those are the Christmas lights.”
Todd: A Christmas Story
“You’ll shoot your eye out, kid!”
Andrew: The Best Man Holiday
“Is Jordan your first safari into the enchanted jungle?”
Nina: The Santa Clause
“Plain milk’s fine.”
(The disappointment in his voice cracks me up every time.)
So there you have it. The favorite holiday films of BatesMeron! Now get off the Internet, put on your Santa pajamas and cuddle up to watch one (or all) of these movies!
Happy Holidays to all!
