Smart Canucks Countdown to Christmas & Boxing Day Favourite Xmas Flick

Other / Canada

Well tis the last weekend to shop before Christmas!  The malls were crazy today, so many shoppers running around realizing they have to start Christmas shopping lol!

I missed the Christmas countdown the last few days. I feel so busy lately.  I had to go to Kitchener and get my kids passports, shop and oh ya bottle my batches of vino.

Anyways I’m wondering what your favourite Christmas movie is?  I love the movie Elf but I also really love National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.  I look forward to hearing what your favourite(s) are.

* Well my tummy just turned. I was looking up images of Elf and came across a tutorial on how to make your ears into elf ears. I mean literally change them. Ew. Don’t click the “elf ears” link unless you seriously want to see*

    National lampoons christmas vacation is the best by far! I also really like the original grinch though 🙂 I bought a DVD with various xmas favourites and turns out it sucks 🙁 there is a shortened version of the grinch on it and some continuations to frosty, guess i should have read it first,i assumed it was frosty the snowman (1st 1) and rudolph original etc.

    Elf is my favorite as well. (I am NOT checking out that elf ears thing!) I also love A Christmas Story, and the Muppet Christmas Carol. I also love that Muppet Christmas special where they go to Fozzie’s Grandmother’s house and the Swedish Chef wants to cook Big Bird lol. I love the Swedish Chef.

    Hard to pick one but I lave the Santa Claus series with Tim Allen and Santa Claus the Movie with Dudley Moore is a classic. and as for the Traditional sides of things A Christmas Carol with Allister Simms is the best although the new Disney version really impressed me.

    We love the original “We’re No Angels” with Humphrey Bogart, Peter Ustinov and Aldo Ray…Funny, touching and great dialogue!!

    I love How The Grinch Stole Christmas, the original cartoon. National Lampoons is also a must watch every christmas. Home Alone is another of my favorites. My husband loves A Christmas Story but I hate it.

    One Magic Christmas is my alltime favourite!!!! No one ever seems to know this one but it’s great. Christmas day DH and I watch xmas movies ALL day 🙂 Can’t wait 🙂

    I forgot my yearly family tear-jerker…The Christmas Shoes 🙂

  13. AprilD says:

    OMG someone else besides me listed One Magic Christmas as their favorite Christmas movie! I love love love this movie and have watched it every Christmas Eve for about the last 20 years. Such a great movie and I agree with Perogie, not many people have ever heard of it!

    I have never seen One Magic Christmas until now..I am watching it on CBC as we speak..great movie !

  15. Martha says:

    Love One Magic Christmas! My sisters and I watched it every year when we were younger. Now that we are ‘grown’ we own the DVD and pass it around each Christmas so we can take turns watching it.
    Elf is also one of my very favourites!

    The night the saved Christmas, made for tv movie in the 80’s haven’t seen it since. The worse/best Christmas pageant ever, One magic Christmas, The Muppets Christmas that they went to Fonzies Grandma too. Why oh why don’t they show some of these classics lol

    White Christmas, hands down. I have seen it 8 times so far. I also love Christmas Vacation (I actually found a black dickie-you know, the fake black turtle neck that the cousin wears under a white vee neck sweater-for my hubby’s stocking, lol), The Holiday, A Christmas Story ( two kids actually stuck their tongues onto a frozen steel pole during my yard duty at school this week..) and Elf, which we watch year round!
