A Christmas movie advent calendar

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, which means I'll start breaking out the Christmas music and movies on Friday. I already have my tree up because I always put it up on Nov. 24 (read here for more information on that), but I try very hard to hold out on the holiday tunes and flicks until after Thanksgiving.

I own a ton of Christmas movies. Here are the titles I have to work with:

There are 10 movies in that bottom DVD case, including: "The Christmas Kiss," "A Boyfriend For Christmas," "The Holiday Engagement," "Mrs. Santa Claus," "Old Fashioned Christmas," "A Carol Christmas," "Three Wise Women," "Single Santa Seeks Mrs. Claus," "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year," & "Moonlight & Mistletoe)T

Not pictured because they are en route:
"Holiday in Handcuffs"

Somehow I do not own "Home Alone," but I will be changing that soon.

I'm also including the following Netflix selections:
"The Christmas Crush"
 "The Mistletones"

This year, I've decided to draw out the holiday goodness by watching one movie a day from now until Christmas.  And to keep some element of surprise, I wrote each title on a piece of paper, shuffled them well, and clipped them to my snowflake with numbers on the outside:

The fun will start next Tuesday. I may live tweet some of them, so be sure to follow me if that's your thing.

What Christmas movies are on your must-watch list?


  1. OH what a neat idea for an advent calendar! It would be so fun to get a big surprise about what you'll watch each day! :)

  2. This is a great idea. Serendipity and The Holiday are two of my all-time favourite movies. The Family Stone is another I re-watch almost every single year. Love Christmas movies :) :) :)

  3. I love this idea! So many advent calendars seem like they'd start to seem like a chore after a while... like, what if I don't want to bake cookies on that day? But I can watch a Christmas movie anytime. The Holiday is my actual favorite movie of all time.

  4. What a fun idea! I love it!

    Chris would totally revolt, though. He'll be okay with one or two Christmas movies, but not much more than that. I am finally going to sit him down and force him to watch Elf, though. That's a non-negotiable.
