    Elf is a really cute movie. I need to watch that one again before Christmas. πŸ™‚

    Thanks for inviting me along on your holiday blog hop, Lynn! Love it!

    • Lynn Rush says:

      ELF RULES! Okay, maybe not rules, but it’s high up there on the funny factor for sure! LOVE me some WILL. He’s hysterical.

  2. Theresa says:

    I have to say Elf is my favorite xmas movie, hands down! I laugh so hard that I cry every time I watch it. πŸ™‚


  3. Ciara Knight says:

    Elf is hysterical. I’m off to check out the rest of the participants. Good luck to everyone!

  4. I’m not a huge Elf fan, but I did love The Christmas Story. I know, it’s a classic, but I watch it every year! πŸ™‚

  5. Erin Danzer says:

    I don’t really have a favorite Holiday movie, but I always make sure to catch the Charlie Brown Christmas special. This year I also enjoyed the Madagascar special on Thanksgiving and even managed to see Shrek the Halls. Growing up, my parents watched all of the holiday specials on TV with my brother and I so I’m excited to do the same with my boys. πŸ™‚

    Off to check out everyone else in today’s hop.

  6. Paula McCurry says:

    The Muppets Christmas Carol!!! The combo of Charles Dickens and Jim Henson is just magical.

  7. Good Morning! I love Home Alone. I just like to laugh!

  8. Maggie says:

    I wish I could see that, but I’m the last of the dinosaurs on dial-up. Er, not by choice! LOL. Fave movie? Christmas Vacation.

    • Lynn Rush says:

      Christmas Vacation. Now that’s a classic, right? Nice choice. Dial-up…did you say dial-up??? LOL Hang in there. πŸ™‚

  9. Missy says:

    OMG!! I had to hear, “Did you hear that?” forever after my kids first saw that movie. And yes, we had all the sound effects from 4 of them going on.

    My all time favorite holiday movie is National Lampoons Christmas Vacation. I’ve seen it so many times, but still crack up everytime I watch it!

  10. Danica Avet says:

    I’m conventional when it comes to Christmas movies. A Christmas Story has been and always will be my favorite movie for this time of year. It’s spectacularly funny with some of the best lines ever.

    I actually had to force myself not to use the line “looks like a pink nightmare” in one of my WIPs, LOL

    • Lynn Rush says:

      Danica…You’re right. They do have the best lines ever. Very creative writing on that movie for sure!!!! πŸ™‚

      LOL. Pink Nightmare. That’s funny!

  11. I need to watch Elf, I’m missing out clearly!

  12. Deb Vander Weide says:

    Thanks for posting the Elf clips,I think I have watched it once and it was so funny,will have to watch that again.But the one I have been watching for quite a few years is The Christmas Story.

    • Lynn Rush says:

      Boy. I think The Christmas Story is up there on everyone’s favorite. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Thanks for swinging by, Deb!

  13. How the Grinch Stole Christmas is my favorite. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  14. Gotta admit, it was a cute movie! My favorite is A MUPPET CHRISTMAS CAROL. Have a great Christmas!

  15. Tess Grant says:

    Probably too old-fashioned but what can I say…A Christmas Carol (the old version with Alastair Sim). The Santa Clause comes in close second though!

  16. sandy smith says:

    I’m showing my age with this one, but I’m on the old version of A Christmas Carol couch, with Tess (and I hope she’s got popcorn) !

  17. Nat Cleary says:

    I have to say Ive never saw Elf so must check it out. I tend to watch a lot of kiddies Christmas Movies because I have 4 boys under 10. I love The Polar Express and The Muppets Movies but my all time favorite is A Christmas Carol.

  18. Yvonne Leacy says:

    I love Home Alone 1 & 2. So funny! Thanks for the giveaway πŸ™‚

  19. jennifer mathis says:

    I have to watch Christmas Vacation and The Grinch ( movie 0 every year it gets me in the christmas mood and of course we watch all the cartoons they show .

  20. Sebrina says:

    Each year, the kids and I watch Home Alone. The first time I said we were going to watch it they both groaned, literally. They laughed so hard during that movie! And screamed along with the actor when the spider got put on his face! I loved it. Then they watch Christmas Vacation (Chevy Chase) with their dad, and laugh just as hard. That’s the movie my in-laws watched as hubby grew up; sort of kept that little tradition going. My kids seem to like the more grown up humorous movies, rather than the ones for kids………and ELF, yeah, my son dies laughing, along with his father, during that movie! I laugh more at them than I do the actual movie….thanks for the chance at prizes during the hop… πŸ™‚

    • Lynn Rush says:

      Hi, Sebrina! πŸ™‚ Yeah, ELF is super funny, and when someone else starts laughing at it, it makes me laugh too! Love that!!!! Thanks for participating in the blog hop!!!!

  21. Leagh C says:

    I love the Polar Express and my family watches it every year. Also of course the Santa Clause movies with Tim Allen

  22. Lindsay says:

    I guess I’m really dating myself but my favorite Christmas movie is While Christmas with Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye

    • Lynn Rush says:

      That’s okay, Lindsay. Date away! LOL!! I love listening to Bing Crosby sing the Christmas songs! πŸ™‚ Merry Christmas, my friend!!!

  23. That first one is a great line, although I am partial to “You’re an angry elf.”
    A Christmas Story is one of my favorites.

  24. Jenny says:

    I would have to say Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer is my fav.

  25. Favorite Christmas Movie “Mixed Nuts”. Never seen “Elf”,I may need to rent it. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

  26. Yadira A. says:

    My fav Christmas movie of all time is White Christmas! It’s a classic and I love watching it with the family every year… I’m a little bit of a sucker for a good musical:) Thanks for the great giveaway & Happy Holidays!!!


    • Lynn Rush says:

      Hi, Yadira. πŸ™‚ Musicals during Christmas time are fun. I’m usually not a fan of them, but there’s just something about them this time of year. πŸ™‚

  27. Cathy M says:

    In our house, the favorite Christmas movie is, The Christmas Story.

  28. Sara Rodesch says:

    LOL… everyone picked mine! I love the grinch. I had a stuffed grinch up until last year, when I sold him to help narrow down my son’s ever growing stuffed animal collection. I do have to admit the Charlie Brown Christmas special is a classic with Snoopy Dancing on the piano and the ending! Everyone has to love Snoopy!! πŸ˜‰

    Happy Holidays Lynn!

  29. Teresa Morris-lloyd says:

    Wow this is a hard one, because I have so many favorites. Christmas movies in general are my favorite movies. But I guess if I had to narrow it down to one, I would have to say that it would be I think it is called “The Christmas Shoes” any way it is about this couple and there little boy. Well the mother loves to dance, and she tells her little boy that she will soon be dancing in heaven. She is dying of cancer. The boy see’s these red shiny shoes in a store and goes out to find odd jobs to buy them for his mother for Christmas so she will have them to dance in heaven. Well the mother gets closer and closer to dying and the boy finally on Christmas Eve goes to the store to buy the shoes and is $5 short, well the man behind him tells the clerk to add it to his purchase. And he runs all the way home so that he can give his mother those shoes. Of course his mother loves them and ask him to put them on her. And then they hear Christmas Carolers out front and go to the window, and while listening to them the father turns around to find that she was gone. Well there is so much more to it, but it is a very touching story.

    • Lynn Rush says:

      Ohhhhh. I’ve heard of this one. Awesome story!!!! This is my first Christmas without my MIL here. She died in October from cancer. So she’s dancing with God in heaven right now. Thanks for reminding me of this show!!!!! πŸ™‚

  30. Linda Henderson says:

    Well it depends on my mood. If I’m in the mood to laugh, Christmas Vacation. If I’m in a serious mood White Christmas. I love that old movie. And Holiday Inn isn’t bad either.

  31. Lisa Kessler says:

    OMG I love Elf!!!

    My kids this year took turns answering our phone “This is Panda, what’s your favorite color?” LOL

    My favorite Christmas movie is still Christmas Vacation though… Love that one! πŸ™‚


  32. Diane says:

    Has always been: White Christmas. I do love that movie!

  33. Do I have to pick JUST one? Ok! Hmmm…..*tapping foot*……A Christmas Carol is one of my favorites but I don’t watch it every year…..the same with Christmas Vacation although Chevy Chase does a great job with that part! Those would have to be my favorite!

  34. StacieD says:

    I love ELF, Scrooged. Love Actually and Mickey’s Christmas Carol. It isn’t Christmas until I’ve seen all the films.

  35. Michelle Harlan says:

    I love Christmas movies~but if we’re talking comedy than it has to be National Lampoon’s Christmas vacation. I die laughing every time Clark starts ranting! Especially during the “hap, hap, happiest Christmas” spiel! So darn funny!

  36. Awesome clips! I laugh every time I watch that movie even though I know what happens next! Have a great rest of the hop. πŸ™‚

  37. Ashley Applebee says:

    Elf is an awesome movie! Those are my two favorite scenes, and I really like the scene with the raccoon too! My favorite Christmas movie has to be the ORIGINAL Charlie Brown Christmas special πŸ™‚ (that counts right? lol)

  38. Kathryn Merkel says:

    I like Elf & it’s one movie I do drag out to watch sometime over the holidays, but the one I can’t miss is Holiday Inn with Bing Crosby & Fred Astaire.

  39. Heather says:

    I haven’t seen Elf but I love The Christmas Story. Ralphie is so cute!

  40. tammy ramey says:

    i liked Elf too, i thought the Santa is coming scene was one of the funniest.
    at our house we are pretty traditional, we watch the movies with my nieces and nephews that i watched we i was little. they were things like the animated How The
    Grinch Stole Christmas,Santa Clause is Coming To Towne,Frosty The Snowman and of course we watch It’s A Wonderful Life. πŸ™‚
    I hope you and your family have a very Happy Holiday Season.


  41. Ooooh, I love Elf too! I have so many favorites. It’s so hard to pin one down. If I have to choose, I’m partial to A Christmas Carol movies. My favorites versions are the Patrick Stewart and Albert Finney (titled Scrooge) versions.

  42. June M. says:

    My favorite holiday movie would probably be The Santa Clause (with Tim Allen). My niece (almost 17) was crazy for these movies and I lost track the the number of times we watched them. I would always buy her the DVDs when a new one was released. She is still crazy for Christmas movies, often watching them whenever the mood strikes, even in the middle of summer.

    Hope you have a safe & happy holiday season!

  43. Anne says:

    A Christmas Story with Ralphie and his family. perfect for all ages and not overly sweet.


  44. I have to say Love Actually. How I found my hero, the actor Rodrigo Santoro, in my first book. I have the 3 minute scene when he removes his clothes with Laura Linney on super slow mo, so it stretches out to 20 minutes. Honest.

    I love the idea of falling in love at Christmas.

  45. Misha says:

    My favorite Christmas movie would probably be the Ben Kingsley version of A Christmas Carol, although it might just be because I love the book so much.


  46. Diana says:

    I don’t really like Will Ferrell but in this movie was amazing. My favorite Christmas movie is Love Actually.
    Thank you for the great giveaway and Merry Christmas.

  47. books4me says:

    I was surprised how much I loved Elf, as I am not a fan of Will Ferrell’s humor. My favorite movie is It’s a Wonderful Life as well as the old Christmas specials: Rudolph the Red Nosed Christmas, Frosty the Snowman, etc.

  48. Dawn Chartier says:

    Merry Christmas, Lynn.

    I’d have to say, “It’s a Wonderful Life,” is my all time favorite.

    (sorry I’m late, just saw Rachel’s blog)

  49. Shadow says:

    I love Elf. So cute! I have two favorite Christmas movies: A Christmas Story and Polar Express. I adore both! Thanks for sharing! Wish you a Merry Christmas!

  50. Chelsea B. says:

    Elf is super cute πŸ™‚
    My favorite is The Holiday. It’s so romantic!

  51. Lisa Kessler says:

    I thought I commented already, but I think all the blogs are blurring together! LOL

    Christmas Vacation is still my favorite, but I do love Elf too!!! πŸ™‚

    Thanks for arranging the fun blog hop Lynn!!!
