Extra Reading: Top Christmas Movies, Regifting, and More
I was dismayed to hear that Disney is planning a remake of that beloved Christmas movie Home Alone. In my opinion, there is no way they can top the acting of adorable Macaulay Culkin and bungling burglars Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern. This is one of my favourite movies and we watch it every year, along with my husband’s favourite – Die Hard.
According to thetoptens.com these are the top ten Christmas movies:
- Home Alone
- It’s a Wonderful Life
- A Christmas Story
- National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
- The Polar Express
- A Charlie Brown Christmas
- Home Alone 2: Lost in New York
- Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
- Miracle on 34th Street (1947)
