Our favorite holiday movies!
What’s your favorite holiday movie? Here are a few Threadstaff faves.
A Christmas Story
“It’s a CLASSIC!!! ... and it isn't Christmas without watching it at least once per year.”
- Laura Cathcart
National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
"Remember that part where the cat gets fried from gnawing on a strand of Christmas lights? That's why. Also, when their great aunt does the Pledge of Allegiance at grace? That's why, too."
- Kyle Geib
“I typically hate every musical with burning fires of a thousand suns, but for some reason this one does it for me. The down-on-his-luck General and the soldiers help him out. It's great all around.”
- Billy Carlson
“I've just always loved this movie. Maybe it's weird to have it as my favorite holiday movie, but BACK OFF! WHO ASKED YOU?! I love you.”
- Tristan Hammond
“"Best viewed with the John McClane Cocktail:
1.5 oz Everclear
1.5 oz Stroh
Set on fire and taken as a shot.
Yippee ki yay, MF'er."
- Grant Ferguson
Emmett Otter’s Jugband Christmas
“It has puppets, it was done by Jim Henson, it has a great message, and the music is great. I still have our original VHS copy and I still cry whenever I hear "When the River Meets the Sea." It struck a chord with me since we grew up rather poor, and it talks about the true meaning of Christmas. And how can you not love a movie that has animals in jugbands and a band called The Riverbottom Nightmare Band?”
- Sarah Roach
The Hebrew Hammer
“Adam Goldberg AND Andy Dick? Nuff said.”
The Muppet Christmas Carol
“I watch it every year with my family! This movie is like a roller coaster of emotions. You will laugh, cry, hate Scrooge, love Scrooge... it really toys with your feelings. I know all the words and songs by heart. I don't think anyone else in my family actually enjoys this tradition.”
- Leah Fagan
“Best viewed anytime between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Actually, that is the only time you can watch it. Outside of that time frame is illegal in my book. Also, thanks to this movie I know how to booby trap my home against burglars.”
- Betsy Mikel
“Best viewed Friday night eating Thai with the fireplace going and a glass of Pinot Noir, Christmas tree lights on, a holiday scented candle burning, and snow falling outside.”
- Marcella Barcenas
