It's Christmas Time

I am one of those people who feel like I can't break out the Christmas movies, cds or decorations until after Thanksgiving.  But, now, it's time.

These are my Christmas season MUSTS:

I have to watch my favorite movies, which happen to be Christmas movies at least ten times once.

I've gotta hear some "Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays"  (don't laugh)...

I'll always love Mariah's version of "All I Want for Christmas"....


I'm adding a little Michael to my collection this year...

I love singing along to Jessica's "Mary, Did You Know?"

And a Starbucks peppermint hot chocolate can always put a smile on my face!
What are your Christmas season MUST Have's?

Lots of my favs on this list! We watched Christmas Vacation on Sat. and can't wait to watch Love Actually soon! :)

Café Moka said...

Christmas Vacation, of course!! We love Clark Griswold in my family! But we watch it in French and it is very weird for me when I watch it in English because I don't get all the jokes ha!

Michelle said...

Ahh! All my faves! Love Christmas Vacation and ELF-- I can seriously quote both movies line by line! Love Actually is another fave and I love Peppermint Mochas!

meghan said...

Love Actually, the Holiday, Gingerbread Lattes, She&Him Christmas, Jersey Boys Christmas, fun christmas mugs...the list could go on & on!

It's not Christmas until the NSYNC cd is broken out! Serious.

Merry Christmas....

and Happy Holidays!

Jess... said...

Ditto to not decorating or watching Christmas movies until after Thanksgiving. (I did sneak in the Christmas music a little early this year; but only in the privacy of being home alone haha.)

Love Actually is my ULTIMATE MUST HAVE!!!!

Sara Pierce said...

Definitely the new Michael Buble' album and I'd have to add a pandora radio station filled with crooner Christmas classics AND Judy Garland's Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas. PLUS, add The Holiday and The Family Stone (tear) to your movie list!!!!

Heather said...

Love Actually is always on my list!

And I'm obsessed with White Chocolate Caramel Hot Chocolates.

Erin said...

Ahh! NSync! They made the best Christmas album!
I am so in love with skinny peppermint mochas from Starbucks and burning balsam fir candles!

Melanie said...

Definitely Christmas Vacation! I haven't seen Love Actually, but apparently, I must. You can't beat NSync, and I'm dying for the Michael Buble cd. Good list!

Natasha said...

this just made me giddy!! my musts are singing barbra streisand's jingle bells with mom in the car when we go out on our shopping adventures, skinny half calf peppermint lattes, dicken's christmas festival in franklin, and having the perfect "wrapping theme" for all the presents ;)

Melissa said...

I was blaring the NSync Christmas music yesterday! And I love Mariah Carey's Christmas music also!

Erin said...

Wonderful choices lady. I have to say though that my Starbucks holiday go to is the caramel salted hot chocolate.

TaraR said...

My N'sync Christmas CD is a MUST every Christmas. The sad thing? I'm old enough now that the younger generations don't know who N'sync is! Has it really been that long?!?

Christmas Vacation is always a must in our family as well, we usually pop it in every Thanksgiving after dinner to get the holiday spirit flowing :)

Emily said...

great choices, especially the movies!! some of my faves for sure!! love your blog design!!

Harriet said...

I LOVE "Love Actually." My husband and I always watch it the night before Christmas. :) And peppermint mocha is absolutely necessary this time of year... though it may forever be associated with finals in my mind. Oh well-- still delicious!

The Hungry Runner Girl said...
