“I hated the ‘The Polar Express’ when it first came out, but my mom really liked it. I watch it every year around Christmas since it reminds me of her so I guess I would say it’s my favorite now.”

“I would say ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas’ is pretty cute since he’s all grumpy but then he learns about the true meaning of Christmas.”

“I think ‘Home Alone’ is the perfect holiday movie. It’s very charming. ‘A Christmas Story’ is another movie I enjoyed, but I like the old version better than the new one.”

“I don’t think ‘Harry Potter’ counts as a holiday movie but TV stations are always playing marathons around this time and it’s usually what I end up watching.”

“I’m not really a movie person, but my family always ‘Elf’ because it’s funny. I’m pretty sure they just use it as background noise since they fall asleep on the couch before the movie ends.”
