I feel like I should have at least one Hallmark movie on this list, or maybe even a classic like that It’s a beautiful life, But, you know what? These are the three vacation movies that I can watch over and over again and I love them all without apologies.
1. The sound of the music
Is at the top of the list sound of music. I try to watch this movie every year, but I don’t always make it because it’s so long – almost three hours (!) – but when I was a kid it was a permanent holiday movie in our house every Christmas. I realize it’s not a traditional Christmas movie, but to me it will always be the ultimate Christmas movie because we’ve always seen it over the holidays. I love the music, the scenery, the acting and everything about it and my dream is to one day visit all the locations where the film was shot. I especially want to go to the pavilion where Liesal jumps from bench to bench so I can jump over the benches too (side note: here’s a story with lots of fun facts about that scene).
2. Actually love
I just watched this for the umpteenth time the other day and it always amazes me how the video camera guy is Sheriff Rick Grimes the Walking Dead. This movie has it all! It’s got the many storylines, the music, the cheese, the happy moments, the tender moments, the laugh out loud moments… Maybe I’ll watch it again before Christmas ha ha ha! Oh, and if you watch it stay here for the credits because there’s a Kelly Clarkson song at the end called The problem with love is where she sounds exactly like a young Mariah.
Umm… you know you’ve been writing about beauty for a while when you first type “pixie” for “pixie” (like in the beauty brand, ha!).
Man, Will Ferrell just makes me laugh. I can’t even look him in the face without laughing! This Christmas movie always puts me in a good mood and I love how cute and innocent it is.
And you? What are your favorite holiday movies?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
PS OK, OK, you know I couldn’t stop at three. I can’t NOT have little woman with Winona Ryder and Christian Bale on this list!
