I have a family member (who shall remain nameless) who likes to ask one particular question at annual Christmas soirées upon meeting someone for the first time. It's a highly personal and very technical question that garners immediate scrutiny and judgement upon the answerer. Because I know many of you are working hard and might be struggling to answer questions of what to give, what to bake, what to wear, what to bring and don't need so much added pressure this Christmas, I'm presenting the question here for your prior consideration just in case it comes up at your next shindig.
That question is: What are your top five all-time favorite, must-watch Christmas movies?
Mine, in a very particular order, are as follows:
1. Love Actually
2. How the Grinch Stole Christmas (I've been told that only full-length, non-animated movies are accepted when answering the question at parties, but I don't care. I love this movie enough to break that rule.)
4. The Family Stone
5. Home Alone
Feel free to scrutinize and judge. I'm fully prepared to defend myself over a glass of wine and some appetizers. And if you're up to it, leave your own favorites in the comments. I'd love to see some other lists and scrutinize from the comfort of my couch.
Also, just remember, "If you want more, if you want more, more, more. Jump."
Happy Monday! I hope your week is filled with answers to all your questions and many reasons to jump... for my love!
