I LOVE this time of year. I am a hard core Christmas enthusiast. Shoot, my husband and I got married two days after Christmas because we both love the holidays!
I have always been someone who associates movies and music with a certain time of year. Favorite movie during fall time: You’ve Got Mail. Favorite Movie to watch at the beginning of summer: The Sandlot. Favorite movie to watch on Labor Day weekend: The Goonies. Who wouldn’t want a little truffle shuffle and end-of-the-summer adventure as school revs up. You’re mocking me, aren’t you? I was a middle school teacher and I’m pretty sure being in middle school all day as an adult for a period of time stays with you for life.
I am also someone who loves to make lists. I have the most organized iPod you’ll probably ever see. Playlists galore. I have a planner with a “to-do” list for everyday. Love, love, love it. I get a kick out of categorizing my lists. Enter the “Christmas Move Watchlist.” Apparently “Watchlist” is supposed to be two words but I don’t like the Feng Shui of it. What movies do I love to watch and associate with the holidays? Here we go and in no particular order. I know this goes against the organization gods but I just can’t bring myself to pick one over the other… Instead of making this some ordinary list, let’s see a photo for each one I enjoy and see if you can guess. Honor code people. I didn’t create these pics myself so I had to borrow them. Clicking on the source is cheating. Sheesh.
I feel like a renegade having a list of eleven, instead of a traditional list of ten. It really could be more, but these are definitely on my list of movies I always try to watch around the holidays. I also just realized that Nicolas Cage is popular for me this time of year.
