5. Love Actually
One of the best things about being a girl is you can pretty much admit to liking any genre of movie can get away with it. You know? Girls that like Star Wars are unique, boys that like romantic comedies are.....weird. Or so society says. Anyway, Love Actually is lovely, fantastical, and so full of heartwarming laughs.
Buddy the Elf was definitely a role Will Farrell was born to play. I think my favorite part/line is when he's on Earth for the first time and goes inside a coffee shop and yells, "CONGRATULATIONS! WORLD'S BEST COFFEE, WOW!". An instant Holiday classic for sure.
3. Die Hard
Perhaps not suitable for a family gathering with grandparents and 6-year-old nieces, but certainly an unforgettable Christmas movie, to say the least. I mean, Bruce Willis has hair, and he is wearing a tight man tank for the entire movie - what more can you ask for?
2. Edward Scissorhands
A simple, but emotionally poignant film that exceeds beyond the label of a "Holiday movie". With its original script and an ensemble of young, talented actors, Edward Scissorhands is surely going to impress and keep you warm during the cold winter days. I guess it won't work in San Diego, but if y'all are going to be in the East Coast in Christmas, play this movie's soundtrack by Danny Elfman, have a cup of hot cocoa in your hand, and look out the window on a snowy night. Most relaxing Christmas ever guaranteed.
1. A Christmas Story
I never knew people ate Chinese food on Christmas before watching this movie. That scene , however, (I may be biased) was a bit racist given that the waiter was singing the famous Christmas tune as "Fa-Ra-Ra-Ra-Ra-Ra-Ra-Ra-Ra". I can't say I didn't laugh though. A Christmas Story is silly, nostalgic, cute, and simply unforgettable.
