Must Watch Holiday Movies

Even though the turkey leftovers are long gone ... holiday season is in full effect. Malls are packed (I braved the masses yesterday and snagged some adorable chocolate brown Uggs), twinkling lights are up, and Christmas movie marathons have begun. Even if you've seen them 100 times, they're as much a part of your family traditions as keeping grandma away from the eggnog. Check out these must-watch flicks.

The Holiday
Couch, hot chocolate, Jude Law. What combo could be better? This sweet tale of house swapping over the holidays between two total strangers in LA and London leads to romantic rendezvous on two continents. Add it to your Netflix queue ASAP!

Home Alone
“Kevin!!!!“ Today, it would take about 2 seconds to track down a kid you left at home by accident. But this story about a family that leaves their 8 year old son all alone during a frantic rush to the airport is a must-watch Christmas movie. Clumsy burglars, dancing mannequins and sleigh rides down the stairs are funny no matter how many times you’ve seen it!

The Family Stone
True, it’s hard to see Sarah Jessica Parker play a rigid, polar-opposite-of-Carrie-Bradshaw kind of character, but the rest of the cast makes up for it.  Luke Wilson, Diane Keaton, Craig T. Nelson, Rachel McAdams, Claire Danes and Dermott Mulroney come together to tell the tale of a dysfunctional, loving family celebrating a Christmas filled with complications. Keep the tissue box close by.
