Favorite Holiday Movies – Spiel the Beans Style

Hey there friends and Happy Tuesday to you! 

Hopefully you are well on your way to recovering from Thanksgiving and ready to get your Christmas on. I’m one of those in the camp of no decorating for Christmas until after Thanksgiving.

I haven’t completely decided if I will start this week or wait until next week to pull all my things out and decorate our tree.

I’m so excited to be joining Shelly from The Queen in Between and Katy from the The Queen of the Kings for their SPIEL the Beans with Queens link up.

 I just love this topic…Your go to or favorite holiday movies.

I had a list that popped into my head the minute I read this and I bet some of them just might be on your list too.

Christmas Vacation

We watch this every year and every single time we watch it we laugh just like it’s the first time we’ve seen it. It’s truly a family favorite.


The Holiday

If you like romance, comedy and Christmas then this is the movie for you. I love all the characters but Jack Black and Jude Law are easily my favorites. The character Jack Black plays is a departure from most of the characters he plays and shows a more sensitive yet still funny side making him very endearing. Jude Law is just so darn cute and plays such a sweet, lovable guy, you can’t help but fall in love with him.


I doubt I even need to tell you about this one. I probably only need to say the name Will Ferrell and you can figure out the rest. 


The Santa Clause

These movies are some of Katie’s favorites and it doesn’t even have to be Christmas to catch her watching them. Our family are big Tim Allen fans so it’s only natural we’d all like this trio of movies.

Now it’s your turn. What are your go to holiday movies? Leave them in the comments so we can try something new this year. Who knows, maybe they’ll become favorites for our family too.

      Can't wait for my daughter to get home from college and watch The Holiday with her!
      We love to watch Vacation as a family and will probably do that once my parents arrive for Christmas. And Elf…so funny. Can't wait to watch them all!!!

    All of these are on our list. White Christmas is our number 1 though and we always try and watch it as close to Christmas as we can. I also love Love Actually.
