I. Love. Christmas. One of my favorite parts about the season (and one of my favorite parts about life) is all the Christmas movies! Of course I have a fondness for a few of the classic favorites (the original Miracle on 34th St, It’s a Wonderful Life, The Santa Clause, Home Alone, Elf), but what really makes my heart happy are those cheesy Christmas films. Ooooh, sit me down with some pizza, Christmas cookies, and the Hallmark channel, and I’m a happy camper. I wanted to share some of these gems with all of you while there is still time to watch them. It takes a lot for a movie to make it into the Torey Hall of Fame, so these are definitely the best of the best.
In no particular order…
Holiday in Handcuffs
Plot in nine words or less: Woman kidnaps man to impress parents for the holidays.
Love at the Christmas Table
Plot in nine words or less: Lifelong friends go to same annual Christmas party.
Christmas in Boston
Plot in nine words or less: Pen pals finally meet after years of messaging.
Side note: Apparently this used to be called “Instant Message.” I prefer “Christmas in Boston.”
A Christmas Kiss
Plot in nine words or less: Interior designer falls in love with boss’s boyfriend.
Plot in nine words or less: Rich woman finds letter and fulfills girl’s Christmas wish.
The Nine Lives of Christmas
Plot in nine words or less: Two people are brought together by a cat.
Plot in nine words or less: Reporter falls into story by meeting man in snow.
Side note: This is new to my list this year!
Happy movie watching and Merry Christmas!
