MERRY CHRISTMAS, EVERYBODY!!! Well, Merry Christmas Eve, if we’re being technical, but who cares? As far as I’m concerned, Christmas is a 48-hour affair. I hope your day has been merry and bright so far, and I certainly hope you’re not one of those poor souls out doing last-minute shopping. If you are…well, Godspeed.

I have written my eleventh film of Christmas review in the eleventh hour! I’m not sure how many of you will even read this or my next review, what with the joyous craziness of Christmas  only a couple days away. I’ve barely had time to peruse WordPress myself, so forgive me if I haven’t been giving your blog all the love it deserves.

12 Films of Christmas 2013: Love Actually

Time to share some Christmas LOVE! …Love Actually, that is. This delightful rom-com is just the ticket for some holiday cheer, I think. Here’s my review from last year!

In a mad dash to the finish line mere days before Christmas, I am now nine reviews deep in my 12 Films of Christmas series. Despite a few little bumps along the way in my one-horse open sleigh (I did not intentionally rhyme that, I swear), I’ve watched several wonderful movies that have been just the ticket to drum up some holiday spirit.

After the last review for my 12 Films of Christmas series (you can read all of these reviews in the archives), I hope you all don’t think I’m determined to be a Grinch. Honestly, I didn’t know The Polar Express would be so disappointing. I’ll make you a solemn Christmas promise right now: all of the rest of the films in this series are good—even great!

12 Films of Christmas 2013: The Polar Express

I debated whether or not I should even do this reblog since I’m a bit of a Grinch in it…but I feel inclined to warn anyone who might sit down for a casual watch and end up disappointed much like I was last year. So for what it’s worth, here’s last year’s review of The Polar Express.

Six days until Christmas? Twelve days of 2013 left? When did all this happen?! Still seems like this year has only just begun…Anyway, I’m kind of stalling. Why, you may ask? After watching and reviewing seven Films of Christmas—all of which I enjoyed to varying degrees—I decided to watch a film that I hadn’t ever seen before.

12 Films of Christmas 2013: Elf

Switching things up today by sharing another Christmas post from last year–another pretty awesome holiday choice, in my humble opinion, and quite possibly Will Ferrell’s best role. I’m talking, of course, about Elf.

Time for another Christmas film! I hope that your day has been as holly and jolly as a Tuesday can possibly be, but if you’re feeling a little like a Grinch, here’s something that might give you some cheer: Christmas Eve is ONE WEEK from today! …Actually, I hope that didn’t just stress you out. Let me rephrase: You still have A WHOLE WEEK to finish up shopping!

12 Films of Christmas 2013: Home Alone

This will always be one of my favorite Christmas films. I mean really, it’s hard to beat ’90s classics like Home Alone. Feel free to check out my review of it from last year. Fair warning, it might be my most subjective ever, but c’mon…it’s Home Alone.

Time to cut out the reindeer games—I need to get going on these Christmas films! So far, I’ve discussed five joyful and triumphant holiday films (check them out in the 12 Films of Christmas Archives if you missed them), and here we are at the halfway point! I gotta say, of the films I’ve covered for this series so far, this is the one I’m least likely to handle with objectivity.

12 Films of Christmas 2013: The Santa Clause

Enjoying your weekend so far? I hope so! If you’re looking for a good holiday film to watch, you can never go wrong with ’90s magic like The Santa Clause. Here’s my review from last year for your consideration.

Four merry holidays films have made it into my 12 Films of Christmas series, and it’s high time for a fifth.  This particular film is one I’m quite familiar with, as it was pretty much a staple of my childhood. Plus, they show it on TV about 17,864 times throughout this month. It might not be perfect, but I think this film has become a sort of modern classic.

Three Films of Christmas have made my season bright so far, and now it’s time for a fourth! As for this one, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I’m a sucker for great children’s films. There’s something about really spectacular animation paired with an uplifting storyline that just gets me.

12 Films of Christmas 2013: The Bishop’s Wife

Here’s another Christmas reblog from last year for your reading enjoyment. Have you guys seen The Bishop’s Wife? I thought it was okay. But I’ll let you read all about that if you want.

The first film of Christmas covered animated film Arthur Christmas, the second switched gears with Bill Murray comedy Scrooged, and now here we are on the third film of Christmas, which is undoubtedly a blast from the past. Though I haven’t seen nearly as many as a proper movie lover should, I have a fondness for old black-and-white films.
