Traditional Movies

I'm such a sucker for the Christmas movies and movies that are old are even better! Since Dec 1st, Hubs and I have been checking the channels and setting our DVR so we can watch them again and again...although Hubs has been working his booty off and has only gotten to watch Elf. This is probably due to the fact that I've already watched it 3 times - so by default he had to have been around at least one of those times, right?
See I'm quite a sentimental person, therefore I love this time of year because it reminds me of all the traditions our family had growing up. (Hubs has already talked to me about how we will have to have our own traditions instead of just having the Spencer traditions. Which is great with me because the more traditions, the better!) But some of the Spencer traditions involved watching movies. You know, that classics. Its a Wonderful Life, Home Alone, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas were some that we always watched. Hubs says their family watched Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. Last night as we were both working while Home Alone, Lost in New York was on in the background. Hubs claims that he likes that one better than the original but I think it's just because we now live in New York. Although, they do make living in the city look pretty awesome - I would love to be picked up in a limo with a hot pizza waiting for me in the mornings to go to a store of my choice. Um, yes please! Anytime! However, just without the Wet Bandits chasing after me. Thank goodness for the crazy bird lady!
So far, Hubby and I have the tradition of watching Elf as soon as Thanksgiving has arrived (maybe before if you count this year) and then many times more throughout the month of December. Its almost pathetic how much I love this movie! Almost.
Now that I've rambled... what are your favorites? Any movie traditions?

One of my favorite parts in the movie. I give Hubby a good laugh when I sing "Buffalo Bill won't you come out tonight..."
its a wonderful life

How can you not love this one? Look how happy they least at the end.
