Holiday House Party...

Don't you just love Christmas parties? All the food, games, food, gifts, food...well, I digress. When I got the invitation for Kimba's Holiday Open House, I decided that I'd bring the entertainment. Who doesn't love a good Christmas movie? One of my favorite Christmas traditions is snuggling up on the couch and watching some good holiday movies. For Kimba's party, I brought along a few different ones. I hope there's one that you'll like!
The first is one that I'll watch whether its December or July, "Christmas in Connecticut" with Barbara Stanwyck and Dennis Morgan. Dennis Morgan is Jefferson Jones, a war hero who is spending Christmas with Elizabeth (Stanwyck), her husband, and baby at her Connecticut estate. The trouble is, its all a farce, and things get a little sticky when Elizabeth and Jefferson find themselves falling for each other. Here's a scene:

The next movie I brought is another oldie but goodie, "White Christmas". Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney, and Vera Ellen star in this classic holiday film.

Here's one that's been one of my favorites since I was a little girl. Who can resist this little guy?

And finally, my favorite one of all: "A Charlie Brown Christmas". Charlie and his friends learn what many adults never do, what Christmas is all about. Here's my favorite scene:

I hope you enjoyed my holiday flicks!
Do you have a favorite Christmas movie that you can watch over and over each year?

We have to watch "While You Were Sleeping" every year. Although set at Christmas-time, it's really not a Christmas movie. We love it just the same, though!

You can never go wrong with White Christmas--it's my favorite!

You are a closer to a Skyline than I am! I am about 6 hours from one! Thank goodness for the spice packets!

"White Christmas" is a favorite but we watch "Little Women" every year. Not a traditional Christmas movie but it has the right vibe.
