the snowman




i wish this would play on t.v.
it makes me think of christmas and winter. and my mother.
we watched this together so many times when i was a child. and she really loves this song.
and i think i cry everytime i see this movie.

Santa Claus: The Movie!!

I've seen it a hundred times and never get bored.

oh wow i forgot about this entirely. yep, we watched it with my stepmom. pretty haunting christmas fare, but so gorgeous and reminds me of The Secret Garden which means I LOVE IT.

conversely, we are also a Christmas Vacation family, fiercely religious about only watching it on christmas eve. mele kalikimaka...

and i personally could watch the cartoon How The Grinch Stole Christmas every day of december.

awwh, my mum and I used to love this movie when I was a little one! I bought the dvd a few years ago, but I still haven't watched it yet! It's just not the same seeing it without her!

The 1964 claymation Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Home Alone & Love, Actually!

home alone 2 might be my all-time favorite christmas movie!

I've never seen this before- perhaps I should then. Umm... there are two things that make me feel Christmassy: The Nightmare Before Christmas and truffles. Oh yes.

I've never seen this! I love old Christmas movies. A Year Without A Santa Claus has been an old favorite, though I'm partial to any and every Bass-Rankin production. And I can't leave out dear Charlie Brown!

I always watched 'little lord fauntleroy' on Christmas eve when I was little. I absolutely loved it. I really want to show it to my little ones this year.
