Top 10 Favorite Holiday Movies
I can't believe it's already December! I love this time of year. The weather gets colder and one of my favorite things to do is cuddle at home and watch a heart warming Christmas movie. Christmas movies are something I look forward to every year. Some might be cheesy cute, but that's the beauty of a good chick flick...makes you feel so warm and fuzzy inside. My favorite are the ones that are shown on Lifetime TV or ABC Family network. Unfortunately, they don't make movies like they used too. I haven't seen any recent new Christmas movies I've been even marginally interested in. These are my top 10 favorite holiday movies to date. Hope you find some time to smile with some of these this season!
1. Last Holiday (2006)
This movie is undeniably my favorite movie of all time! I don't think it's actually set during Christmastime but it has snow and the title has "holiday" in it...does that count? ;) I have seen it over 10 times and have never gotten sick of it. Queen Latifah plays Georgia Byrd, a woman who has always played it safe and ''lived her life in a box." She's a dreamer who envisions herself married to a cutie at work named Sean and owner of her own restaurant. Instead of enjoying everything in the present moment, Georgia lived a boring life and did not allow herself to indulge in everyday pleasures. When she finds out that she only has three more weeks to live, she became determined to catch up on what she's been missing out on her whole life. She embarks on a luxurious trip of a lifetime, where she finally learns to enjoy life for what it is. I love this movie because it makes me smile. I love watching her transformation as she lets loose and finally enjoys herself. I love that the movie revolves around food and the fact that this movie definitely will give you a warm and fuzzy feeling when you're done watching. If you'e a hopeless romantic, like myself, you will love this movie too.
This is another transformation movie that I happen to love. Practical businesswoman, Jane, doesn't know what she is missing from life until after a fateful car accident. She wakes up from the accident as a completely new Jane, who is a happily married woman and a mother of two. As she adapts to this new world and falls in love with Sam all over again, she begins to realize that there's much more to life that she's been missing. This is such a feel good movie, I highly recommend it.
5. Borrowed Hearts (1997)
6. On the 2nd Day of Christmas (1997)
7. Serendipity (2001)
