Holiday Traditions – December 15, 2007

Now before you all get excited about me saying "Holiday" rather than "Christmas" let me explain to you that I'm going to be talking about New Years, thus lumping my Christmas and New Years traditions into Holiday traditions. Now that that is out of the way allow me to explain to you about how I … Continue reading Holiday Traditions – December 15, 2007

The Best Darn Christmas Movie of All-Time

I’ve decided to be generous and give you all an early Christmas present. That’s right, I’m going to release the top two Christmas movies of all time today! Whoohoo! I figure most of you that remember what movies were on the list and what you voted for can kind of guess which two movies are … Continue reading The Best Darn Christmas Movie of All-Time

No. 3 – A Good Ol’ Fashioned Christmas

It’s not Christmas if it’s not spent with the Griswolds. At least for the Johnson’s its not. Oops, did I ruin it already? Our No. 3 film was the highest ranked movie on the list. It averaged an 8.0 ranking and was named No. 1 on eight ballots, also the most. Every year, either on … Continue reading No. 3 – A Good Ol’ Fashioned Christmas

No. 4 – My Buddy the Elf

Our fourth movie is just three years young.

It was named on 62-percent … Continue reading No. 4 – My Buddy the Elf

No. 5 – The Trial of the Century

We’ve reached the top five Christmas movies of all time. I bet you’ve all been anxiously awaiting for this since the moment we started the countdown.

Anyway, … Continue reading No. 5 – The Trial of the Century

No. 6 – The Red-Nosed Misfit

Our No. 6 film beat out Charlie Brown by one vote. Poor Chuck! We’re nearly six more days until this list is over and I can relax and wrap my Christmas gifts. Okay, it doesn’t take up that much of my time, plus I enjoy doing it. Anyway, here’s No. 6... No. 6 - Rudolph … Continue reading No. 6 – The Red-Nosed Misfit

No. 7 – A Blockhead and his Tree

This movie barely missed out on being No. 6 falling two points shy of overtaking its next competitor, which you all know I can’t reveal. And now I feel sad because, after recently watching this one I would’ve voted for it in my top 10. Okay, so maybe I’m not sad, but still, this film … Continue reading No. 7 – A Blockhead and his Tree

No. 9 – That Green Grumpy Grinch

We’re moving right along in our countdown to the No. 1 Christmas movie of all time. I know you’re all antsy and want me to just skip to the beginning but I can’t. It’s just too fun (and much easier) writing one little summary a day. Our next film is both a TV special and … Continue reading No. 9 – That Green Grumpy Grinch
