Holiday Movies

I Linked Up at the Christmas Linky Party Button 

This post is part of the Christmas Linky Parade hosted by the Cottage Magpie.

One of my family's favorite activities to do every year is watch holiday movies.  It doesn't matter how many times we've seen them, we like to watch them again and again every year.  Sometimes we watch while munching on holiday cookies and sipping hot cocoa and sometimes we watch while wrapping gifts.  Sometimes we just watch and laugh at the same old jokes.  Some of my favorite movies to watch during the holidays are:

A Christmas Story
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
Love Actually
A Charlie Brown Christmas
The Grinch

Nativity! is a new favorite on my list and of course, I discovered this movie through Pinterest!

I am a huge fan of British television so when I saw this on Pinterest, I knew I had to see it.

It was released in theaters in 2009 and only in the UK.  You can get it on Netflix so put it in your queue right away! 

In this British comedy, a frustrated primary school teacher named Paul Maddens, played by Martin Freeman (Sherlock, The Hobbit, The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy) is given the job of producing the school nativity play.    In the movie, Mr. Maddens has recently broken up with his girlfriend and everything seems to go wrong with the Nativity play with humorous results.  Don't worry, it has a happy ending!  This is a really sweet film!

*Special note if you are a David Tennant fan:   According to  IMBD  Nativity 2 starring David Tennant was just released in Ireland and the UK earlier this November.  Hopefully, it will be available in the U.S in time for next Christmas!

What are your favorite holiday movies?
