So on Facebook this morning, we got started chatting about what is "necessary viewing" for the holidays?
Like, the kind of movies we've seen over and over again, and are -- without a doubt -- holiday classics. The sort of movies everyone should see.
Like imagine you're with a group of people during the holidays and you're trying to agree on a movie to watch, and one person says, "I've never seen that..." and it's "A Christmas Story"... and we all know that's the sort of movie that is instantly in everyone's Top 10.
And based on what you've all suggested this morning, I think it could actually be summed up to a Top 10 of Necessary Holiday Movies That Must Be Watched By All.
Here's what we've all agreed on so far....
A Christmas Story
Charlie Brown Christmas
How The Grinch Stole Christmas (cartoon, not Carey)
Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer
Miracle on 34th St
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
Year Without Santa Claus
Frosty The Snowman
It's a Wonderful Life
What do you think? Does that sum it up? Here were the ones that were also mentioned....
You've Got Mail
The Greatest Story Ever Told
How The Grinch... (Carey)
Santa Claus Is Coming To Town
A Christmas Carol (it prob didn't make it in this top 10 bc no one could seem to agree on the same version)
And... do movies that are set during the holidays but not about the holidays... do they even count as "holiday movies"? Because I always considered Home Alone to be a holiday movie, but it really isn't about the holidays, I guess.
