Was talking to my younger sister yesterday and she said that she'd been watching a bunch of Christmas movies and she asked if I had too. I had to admit that I'm not a big fan of Christmas movies, I find them over sentimental and sometimes just silly, though I do like White Christmas with Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye. Actually caught the last few minutes of it on AMC the other night and found myself singing along to the ending.
Funnily enough my 2 favorite Christmas movies aren't movies at all, they're animated features. My all time favorite is The Snowman narrated by David Bowie. I love that it has almost no dialogue and the music is absolutely haunting. I bought a copy of this video a few years ago and it has become a tradition for us to watch it each year.
The other one I like is one of 4 short films found on a Christmas story video, it's called Morris's Disappearing Bag. A short, sweet film about a little rabbit's Christmas.
