Some of My Favorite Christmas Movies

Today I am going to be sharing with you all some of my favorite Christmas movies! :D I enjoy watching these each Christmas.

Elementary school teacher Christie is embracing the holiday spirit: she has entered the Christmas Bake Off, and feels determined to win the grand prize of a trip for her class. But when her childhood rival, Penny, joins the contest, the heat is really on...especially when the handsome, widowed father of one of Christie's students becomes part of the festivities.

--A Cookie Cutter Christmas is a great, fun movie. --

In the midst of war in Afghanistan, an army soldier named Cody, is touched when he receives a Christmas card from a young woman named Faith, who lives in the small town of Nevada City, California. 
A few weeks before Christmas, Cody goes on military leave and travels to Nevada City in search of Faith. Through a series of events he becomes very close to the family. Her father and uncle do their best to bring Cody and Faith together even though Faith is already engaged to someone else.

--The Christmas Card is a favorite in my family. --

Newly widowed Kathy plans to skip out on decking the halls and trimming the tree this Christmas, trying to avoid anything that will bring back memories of her late husband. The only Christmas tradition she will observe is baking cookies for her friends, a passion since she was a child. When Kathy meets handsome Christmas tree shop owner Tim, their undeniable chemistry - along with an ornament Tim gives her that symbolizes hope - helps Kathy open up to the joys of the season again. With the support of her best friend Jenna, and the budding relationship with Tim, Kathy begins to embrace the hopeful message of the ornament. Although Kathy wants to take a chance on Tim, she struggles to find the balance between preserving the memory of her husband and moving on with her own future. Is the Christmas ornament a sign that she can have a hopeful future?

--The Christmas Ornament is a movie that I watched for the first time this year. It's really good, and I've actually watched it twice already. --

When Todd, a developmentally-challenged 20 year-old with an affinity for animals, hears that the animal shelter is looking for families to foster a dog for Christmas, he’s eager to sign up. But Todd's father George says “no adoptions” – even temporary ones – claiming he wants to protect Todd from disappointment. Mary Ann, Todd's mother, knows better. Something else is troubling George – something he doesn’t want to face.
With Mary Ann’s support, Todd’s persistence pays off. He chooses a friendly yellow lab and names him “Christmas.” Bringing Christmas home proves to be a life-changing event for the whole family, allowing Todd to show that he can care for the dog on his own, and inspiring George to love a new member of the family.

--This is a really sweet Christmas movie. --

Single mom Jennifer, who can't wait for Christmas to be over, has her perfect list-driven life derailed when her uncle Ralph visits for the holiday. 
During Uncle Ralph's trip, he meets a fellow, care-free, traveler named Morgan. Morgan's connecting flight is cancelled and Uncle Ralph convinces Jennifer to allow Morgan to stay with them for one night, but Uncle Ralph has alternative motives and things get crazy when Jennifer's list-driven life collides with Morgan's care-free lifestyle.

--The Most Wonderful Time of the Year is another family favorite. It's really good and pretty funny too. --

Kathleen has carried around the unwanted memory of her father abandoning her and her mother on Christmas Eve. For the past 30 years, she has blamed her mother for that night and refuses to celebrate Christmas in any fashion. Although she has tried to forget her past, it has not forgotten her, and in the days leading up to Christmas she finds herself stuck in her own home with two strangers, Sam, a gentle older man Kathleen took in for the night and Lucy, the daughter of her soon to be fiancé. As the storm brings her face to face with the hurts of her past, she will have to choose one path; letting go and grabbing hold of a life changing forgiveness or continuing to carry her pain and bitterness with her.

--I actually did a review on this movie a couple of days ago. If you didn't get a chance to see it you can go here. --
