Blogmas: Top 5 Christmas Movies to Watch in December

It’s December, it’s almost Christmas, it’s cold enough to cuddle with blankets, so you best believe that I will be watching my Christmas movies with pleasure!

So grab your own blanket, slip on those fuzzy socks, pop the corn, and take a seat with me. Take a vote and tell me below which of these five is your favorite!

5. 1970s Santa Claus is Coming to Town (Yea the animation can be a little unsettling at times, but it is a classic and it automatically transports me to my childhood)


4. 2003 ELF  (I’m not always a fan of Will Ferrell, but he nailed this role!) Plus, Buddy is pretty much a modern-day Rudolph (the comparisons are solid, trust me, I did the analysis).

3. 1990 Home Alone (Yes, he is a total brat in the beginning who needs a good spanking, but you gotta love his ingenious booby-traps and the humor. Plus, he learns his lesson! Kind of…)

2. 2000 How the Grinch Stole Christmas (I swear this is one of Jim Carrey’s finest roles! I usually watch this movie multiple times during the holiday season. Plus, you have to enjoy the humor snuck in there just for the adults.)

1. 1994 The Santa Clause with Tim Allen 

By far, this is the best Christmas movie. When I imagine “Santa Clause,” Tim Allen is the only face I see. For all I am concerned, he IS Santa Clause. It deals with real life issues like divorce, it has holiday joy, it has snarky sarcasm, and it leaves me with a happy feeling inside.


What do you think? Am I missing any of the classics? What is your top holiday movie?

Blogmas: Move Over Rudolph, there’s a New Reindeer in Town

So, I was watching ELF the other day and all the sudden, it hit me, Buddy is the human version of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer!

Hear me out and let me know if you see it too or if I’m reaching:

Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer had a very shiny nose . . .

that differentiated him from the rest of the reindeer.

Likewise, Buddy the Elf has his own physical “deformity” that separates him from the rest of the elves.

All of the other reindeer used to laugh and call him names . . .

Neither Rudolph, nor Buddy seem to fit in anywhere they go. Even though Santa is kind to Buddy in ELF, he still sends him away from the North Pole. Rudolph doesn’t fit in with the other reindeer and so he leaves as well. However . . .

Then one foggy Christmas Eve, Santa came to say . . .

Then all the reindeer loved him and they shouted out with glee!

All the sudden Santa need’s Rudolph’s bright nose or Buddy’s ability to fix the sleigh. After Rudolph/Buddy saves the day, they are welcomed back at the North pole with open arms

Ergo, Buddy is human Rudolph!

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (Buddy the Elf) you’ll go down in history! (or get made into a children’s book)

Whether or not the directors intended this parallelism, I could not help but to notice it! What do you guys think?

Happy Blogmas!
