We go by the Costco calendar. What does that mean? As you can see in the photo to the right taken at our local Costco, it means the holiday season is upon us. Yes, our neighbors are just starting to get their Halloween decorations out (they’re available at Costco, too :)), but for us it’s time to start thinking about the holidays. And part of that is the list of movies for holidays.
What qualifies a movie to be a holiday movie? Two things: first, it needs to leave you with a general sense of happiness or well being, ideally with a silly grin and a tear or two (or more) shed. Second, it needs to have at least one memorable scene set in winter. RED, for example, has an great scene set in winter with Christmas decorations and all. That means that our list is as follows:
(1) Love, Actually
(2) Die Hard
(3) About A Boy
(5) When Harry Met Sally
(7) Bridgit Jone’s Diary
(8) While You Were Sleeping
(9) Groundhog Day
(10) The Holiday
What do you think? What’s missing from this list?
