I was listening to the radio station this morning and the DJ’s and producers were having a light-hearted argument over their favorite Top 5 Christmas movies. The challenge was that they could ONLY name 5 movies! Five Movies!
Turmoil ensued when one producer left off Christmas Vacation in favor of Polar Express, which in turn garnered this response from the other producer:
“Your list is null and void if you do not have National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation!”
….with which I completely agreed!
And it got me thinking—Is it even possible to come up with a list of only FIVE Christmas movies?

OK, this was waaaaay harder than I anticipated. There is NO way in the world to take decades of wonderful warm and fuzzy holiday movies and only list FIVE.

It’s simply not humanly possible. If you were to only list 5, your heart is probably 2 sizes too small.
(ha! See what I did there? 2 sizes too small—like the Grinch Who Stole Christmas!)
Ok, back to the list…
So what I decided is that you have to divide them into categories. That’s the only fair way to do it and quite frankly, it’s the only way to do it.
