Original Post:
I love holiday movies, always have. From A Christmas Carol to A Charlie Brown Christmas, I’ve seen them all, melted over them all, and probably cried buckets over them all as well. A recent favorite is The Holiday with Jude Law. I actually rented that one last year with a bit of an attitude because Harry Potter’s latest was sold out. I was in the mood for Hogwarts and adventure, not a sappy romance (funny considering I write them…)

But I was transfixed. There was nothing sappy about it at all. It was a wonderful, deep, warm, funny, sexy romance. In fact, there were two romances. And I melted. And yes, I also cried. In a very good way.

How about you? Do you have a favorite holiday movie? Or how about a holiday book? Comment here today and I’ll be drawing names. Five of you will be gifted with my upcoming holiday novella UNDER THE MISTLETOE, and one of you will win a box of my favorite (at the moment) cookies. ๐Ÿ˜†

  1. My favourite holiday movie which I watch EVERY Christmas since it came out is National Lampoons Christmas Vacation. Love it ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. You know what I adore most about The Holiday? The sweaters. Saw it in the theaters when I lived in Arizona — where I wore my sweaters for perhaps 47 minutes the entire winter. I have sweater lust for Kate and Cameron’s clothes. I have sweater Luuuuuv for Jude Law in that Blue sweater that matches his eyes.

    Favorite holiday movie? Muppet Christmas Carol.

  3. I love Miracle on 34th Street the original. I also love The movie you mentioned. I also love Ron Howard’s version of The Grinch.

  4. My favorite holiday movies are Christmas in Connecticut (the original with Barbara Stanwyck) and…ok, honestly, Christmas Eve on Sesame Street. I loved it SO MUCH as a little kid, and now I watch it with my four-year-old and feel like it’s really Christmas all over again. The things that make a big impression on us as toddlers can REALLY last! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. oh i also adore The Holiday!
    but my all time fave is Miracle on 34th street… just gives me fuzzies all the time ๐Ÿ˜›

  6. I also really enjoyed The Holiday. It’s a great feel good movie. My favorite Christmas movie is It’s a Wonderful Life. I never get tired of seeing it.

  7. I love WHILE YOU WERE SLEEPING. Such a great holiday movie. The chemistry between Sandy Bullock and Bill Pulhum is electric. The movie is a funny, sweet, romantic feel good movie–there is nothing better.

  8. My favorite holiday cartoon is How the Grinch Stole Christmas. I’ve always loved it ๐Ÿ™‚ after Thanksgiving, I tend to read romance centered around Christmas. There’s something just heartwarming about reading about love at Christmas. I usually watch most of the 25 days of Christmas on ABC family and whatever cheesy movies are on lifetime. Can’t help myself.

  9. I love It’s a Wonderful Life and A Charlie Brown Christmas. I have both on DVD, yet watch them on TV every year. I’m excited because Charlie comes on twice this year! Yes, I’ll watch it both times.

  10. We watch White Christmas every year. I also watch Holiday Inn, Meet Me In St. Louis, It’s a Wonderful Life, and Holiday Affair. I love all the old Christmas movies. What’s not to like about Robert Mitchum, James Stewart, Judy Garland, Bing Crosby? My all time favorit movie is Meet Me In St. Louis.

  11. My favorite Christmas movie would have to be ” The Christmas Shoes” It made me cry, But it was one of the sweetest movies I have ever watched. I also enjoyed Miracle on 34th Street. That one was cute as hell too!
    Well I hope you have a Great Thanksgiving!

  12. I really like “A Muppet Family Christmas”. We bought the DVD since it’s not shown on TV anymore. It’s classic Muppets – songs, humor, sweet message. And it includes the Muppets from Sesame Street and Fraggle Rock in it…with a Jim Henson cameo. My husband and daughter and I love watching it every year.

  13. My favorite is White Christmas. I also love all the sappy holiday movies they show on The Hallmark Network.

  14. My dad wants to watch Love Actually every year at Christmas. It’s actually become a bit of a contest, how long can we avoid being subjected to it? Last year I had the flu at Christmas and could only lie on my parents’ couch and moan, so Dad took this as an excuse to pop it in the DVD player and watch it. My mom thanked me for my sacrifice.

  15. I love all of the Santa Claus movies with Tim Allen. And we watch National Lampoons Christmas Vacation several times during the holidays!!!
