Today, we're bringing you six of our favorite holiday movies. (P.S. Click on any of the images to find the movies on Amazon!)

The Grinch
The Grinch is a movie that kids and adults alike can enjoy. It has a fun story line complete with an important message - Christmas is more than material items.

Christmas with the Kranks 
Tim Allen seems to have a lot of luck with good holiday movies. We had to debate between The Santa Clause & Christmas with the Kranks when we were making our list. (We didn't want to show too much favoritism for one actor after all!) Christmas with the Kranks won for it's fun antics and good story line.

We had to include at least one animated classic on the list. Rudolph won by a long shot because it's one of my favorites from childhood. (Little known fact - my car is nicknamed Rudolph for it's bright red color.) Rudolph is a sweet story that focuses on differences being valuable as well.

Polar Express
This is a well-loved book that was turned into a great movie. The animation in this movie is outstanding and the story reminds us of the importance of believing. This one also lends itself to a perfect movie night cuddled up in warm pajamas!

National Lampoons Christmas Vacation
The husband added this one to the list. (I hate to admit it but I've never actually seen it.) It demonstrates the essence of dysfunctional family get-togethers. It also displays the inevitable Charlie Foxtrot that comes with almost any holiday gathering. And of course you can't forget about crazy cousin Eddy - every family has one.

Borrowed Hearts
This one was my addition to the list. We started watching Borrowed Hearts when I was in high school and it quickly became a yearly tradition. It started out that we would always catch it on TV until it stopped coming on TV and we had to look for a DVD copy. It's a great reminder of what the holidays are all about and that people can change.

We also wanted to offer this simple movie and entertaining tip. If you're looking for a fake fireplace, Netflix has a Fireplace for Your Home available for the holidays!
