5 Christmas Movies You Need to Watch This Holiday Season

I'm a Christmas-movie-watching machine. Hallmark movies, classics, new ones - I've seen them all. My good friend came over last weekend with cookies and her Santa slippers to watch a Christmas love story with me and I was in heaven. (That's definitely a fun activity to do with friends or family if you're looking for something to do together without having to get all dressed up.) 

I watched two Hallmark movies in one day yesterday (oops), so I got really inspired to share all my favorite holiday movies! In no particular order, here are 5 movies you need to watch before Christmas!

Elf  //  If you haven't seen Elf by now, I don't know where you've been. This movie makes me laugh so hard and I really enjoy watching it with my family year after year... I never get sick of it!

With Love, Christmas  //  Big shoutout to my dad for always watching cheesy Christmassy movies with me and never complaining about them having the same plot! This movie, however, switched things up a bit and was really, really cute. My heart was so happy at the end of it that I thought it was going to explode - in a good way.

Christmas With the Kranks  //  I LOVE this movie!!!!! I don't know why it's always been my favorite, but it has been and (I think) will always be.

Window Wonderland  //  Another Hallmark special that starts with hatred and ends with love - what more can you ask for? Oh, and the characters were so special and well-developed! 

Home Alone  //  You should hear my little siblings laugh at this movie... they think it's the most hysterical thing ever. If you're looking for a good chuckle, Home Alone won't disappoint! 

What are your favorite holiday movies?
