Christmas movies and me

after a huge grocery shopping expedition, ( we hadn't gone at all since thanksgiving) I settled into my recliner with 2 dogs in my lap and watched Christmas movies all day long. The hallmark Channel had some on all day. Now, I admit I am a bit a bah humbug at Christmas, and this Christmas will be really a sad one for me, but I love me some sappy sentimental Christmas movies! I watched Unlikely Angel with Dolly Partan, Angel in the family with Meredith Baxter Berney and I cant remember the name of the last one but it had Mary Steenburgen and it had an Angel in it too! Am I tired of sappy Christmas movies?? Nope! I love em! I plan on watching more tomorrow :)

My favorite Christmas show is the original animated Grinch who stole Christmas. I really want that Grinch song as my ringtone but Verizon doesn't have it. I tried to record it on my phone but it came out all garbled.

I only really got sad once today. There was a long line at the post office and we were all crammed into a small space (small town living ) and there was an old man that kept telling jokes in the line. He reminded me so much of dad, although I am sure this guy was older.

Anyway, whets your favorite Christmas movie/show?

Later

The original Grinch is one of my faves. I like all the classics. Rudolph, Frosty, Grinch, Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, A Charlie Brown Christmas, etc. In fact, we just bought a DVD with all of those on it. I can't wait to watch it with my granddaughter.

I love the Grinch (animation), the Christmas Story, Charlie Brown Christmas, Miracle on 34th Street, and I'll admit it - I like some of the sappy movies on the Hallmark channel.

A Christmas Story is my favorite followed by Christmas Vacation , and then Elf.I watched a movie over the weekeknd about a little girl who wishes for a mommy for the holidays and Everybody Loves Raymond's mom was some kind of witch or fairy or something and turned a mannekin into a real woman and well you can figure out the rest. It was made in like 1990. The clothes were a hoot and the hair too!

Poddy, I saw that movie too, with Olivia Newton John? I just love her! That movie was strange though and that kid was a brat LOL.

Another good made for TV movie is a Diva's christmas Carol with Vanessa Williams, It was made by VH1 a few years ago.
