  7. Kim,

    I've gone way back in my Christmas movies to the classics like It's a Wonderful Life, but include White Christmas, Boys Towne, Holiday Inn and The Bells of Saint Marys'. Still searching for even more to add to my collection.

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  8. I think you covered them all! Our must sees are "Its a wonderful life" and "Scrooge" But we also see most all of them at some point in the season as well.

  9. Lots of good Holly Jolly movies and music my friend! I do add also like White Christmas for the songs & dancing. And I consider Home Alone a Christmas movie too!

    Some of the Christmas CDs I listen to most are my Herb Alpert Christmas CD (hilarious, but I grew up hearing it every year) and an Amy Grant Christmas CD and we love listening to The Nutcracker!

    Big full-of-festive-favorites hugs to you! Have a wonderful day!!
