12 Days of Christmas: Day #4 … My Christmas Holiday Movie Favorites

Hello Friends and “Welcome” to the blog. Today is Day 4 in the 12 Days Days of Christmas, and I’m sharing my favorite Christmas movies.

Hello Friends and Happy Holidays!  Christmas is the time when the world relaxes and everyone is a little bit more forgiving, and kindness overflows.  I’m feeling thankful for the many blessings that have come this year, and I know next year, the skies the limit.

I’ve never been really big on holiday-themed movies.  I have a few that I like, but I don’t seek them out, and I don’t watch them all each year.  I can get through about 2-4 movies and then I’m done.  Wintertime has been our mystery movie binge tied in with the holiday theme, and I’ve been enjoying that.

There are so many holiday movies, and if you include the UP channel or Hallmark then there are hundreds of titles.  No lie, they all kinda blend in for me on those channels, so here are just a few titles (some traditional, and some non) that share the spirit of the holiday.
