There are plenty of great things about the hoildays but being such a TV junkie one of my favroite things is all of the Chritmas movies and specials that I get to watch. Here a few of my all time favroites, along with the rest of our teams.
Scrooged is probably the first Christmas movie I started to watch every year. Such a classic story with such a strange twist to it. My favroite was the crazy fariy who just crazy and sparkly.
Die Hard while not the classic Christmas Movie is a great tale about using the Christmas Spirit to save lives and take down the bad guys. It has now become a household tradation for some of us to watch it this time of year.
Love Actually is such a feel good movie, its great to just cuddle up on the sofa and watch with your one and only or just all of your friends.
An all time favroite for every age, Just last year I introduced this to my newphews and they loved it! It can really be enjoyed by everyone. Not to mention my favorite parts of this movie, the soundtrack and the great one liners.
No Christams would be complete with out turning on A Christmas Story for a least one of the at least 8 showings that happen on Christmas Eve and Day alone. With such an honest story it is a job to not laugh.
An all around favroite. The season would just not be complete without It's A Wonderful Life
While not orginally a traditional Christmas movie, A Nightmare Before Christmas has quickly gained cult following is now on many great Christmas movie lists. At one point in my childhood I could recite almost every song. I love the snow and Christmas land and the werid-sweet love story.
Last but not at all least is the orginal How the Grinch Stole Christmas. A pure classic. I was pretty sad when they remade this actually, but there is no fighting with the charm and happiness that this movie brings.
From all of us at the Virginia Gail Collection we wish you Happy Holidays and hope that you all find some time to relax and watch one of these great movies!
There is a very good reason why we havn't updated in a few days. I have been on a world wind adventure through West Virginia. Although I wasn't quite sure what to expect while I was there I very much enjoyed myself. We went and cut down our own Christmas tree, in the snow, and have a wood fire going all weekend. My favorite part, by far, was finding out that Falling Water was just an hour drive away from where we were staying. The house was all that I thought it would be, and more. Sadly I wasn't allowed to take photos inside the house, but I do have some of the outside. I need to go back during the fall or spring and have one of their sunset tours!
