Hang Your Stockings and Say Your Prayers, Cause Santa Claus Comes Tonight!

Merry Christmas Eve everyone!!

Can you believe it's almost Christmas? I know I've said this before, but I'll say it again...I love Christmas! Over the past month I've baked and eaten my fair share of Christmas treats, shopped for gifts for the family, listened to Christmas music at every chance I could get, sent Christmas cards, went to Christmas parties, and felt the joy of the season pulsing through everyone. Why can't it be Christmas everyday?!

Speaking of Christmas all the time, did you know that there is an island in the Indian Ocean, near Australia called, "Christmas Island?" I've known about it since I was a kid and always wanted to go there to see if it was like Christmas all year long! If I were the Mayor of Christmas Island, I would make it mandatory to have Christmas decorations up all year long. If anyone from Christmas Island happens to come across this blog, please email me and tell me about your island.

Alright, onto the point of my blog. Let's talk about Christmas movies. Christmas movies are great, aren't they? They just make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside! I've put together my top ten list of Christmas movies, with some clips and pictures for your viewing pleasure.

Sara's Top 10 Christmas Movie List:

10. A Christmas Story

In all honesty, I still don't really see what the big deal about this movie is, but I feel that it's just one that you HAVE to watch on Christmas. Plus, since TBS shows it for 24 hours on Christmas, how could you not watch it?

9. Miracle on 34th Street

I haven't seen this movie in years, but I remember my mom watching it a lot during Christmas, when I was a kid. Definately a classic!

8. It's a Wonderful Life
Another one that my mom always watched during Christmas time.

7. The Polar Express

This is one of my new favorites. Jerm and I saw it for the first time last year (thanks to the McIntyre's) and it's such a cute movie. "I believe!"

6. White Christmas other words for it.

5. Mickey's Christmas Carol
When my sister and I were little, my parents used to turn this movie on as we open gifts on Christmas morning. Awww, memories.

4. The Santa Clause

"Seeing isn't believing. Believing is seeing."

3. Home Alone
I think I remember seeing this in the movie theater when it came out. As I watch it now, I tend to wonder how the burglars could be so stupid, but it's still a great Christmas movie.

2. The Muppet Christmas Carol

Gotta love those Muppets! Kermit as Bob Cratchit and Michael Cain as Scrooge, plus all the great songs, make this a definite favorite of mine.

1. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

Hands down! Best Christmas movie ever!  And the best line of the movie...

So, that's my top ten list of Christmas movies. What is your favorite Christmas movie(s)?

Jeremy and I hope that you all have a very Merry Christmas and get to spend time with your family and friends! One last thing before I go, check out this cool website and track Santa Claus as he makes his way to your house tonight. :-)

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
