You are helping me to get in the Christmas mood. Also my JL Advent calendar. Just talking about Christmas cookies!
I love the color of that yarn.


It's a Wonderful Life

Barbara W

My favorite Christmas movie is "Elf" - it cracks me up every time!

Trina Mechling

I have to watch Its a Wonderful Life, its a movie I've watched every season since childhood. We also watch the Santa Clause trilogy for that holiday laughter. We are putting up our Christmas tree this weekend and we listen to Trans Siberian Orchestra while decorating.


I have to watch "The Grinch" every year...the original cartoon version :)

SuEllyn Rody

Awww, as I was reading your post I was just thinking, "White Christmas" is one of my all time favorite movies and then you said it was your Christmas movie! I couldn't bring myself to see the live production. Those original actors are such a part of that movie. I have a soft spot for "Fitzwilly" too. And, of course, "The Andy Griffith Show" Christmas episode really says Christmas to me. Ooops, forgot about the "Charlie Brown Christmas" except it always makes me cry!

It’s a Wonderful Life


It doesn't seem like Christmas until my husband and I hear Christmas Rappin' by the Waitresses...together. I've heard it this year, but we haven't heard it together so that doesn't count! We'll remedy that this weekend!


My favorite Christmas movie is Miracle on 34th Street. I absolutely love it! I love many Christmas songs, but one of my favorites is Mary, Have You Heard. So beautiful!

Susan Miller

I have to watch Christmas Vacation and Elf each year. Playing Christmas music helps getting into the mood as well.


Beautiful yarn and it’s cold here in MN, perfect for knitting and hot chocolate.

Sally Goodman

Always love watching “It’s a Wonderful Life” at Christmas time!

Samantha T

It’s all of them! We watch every Christmas movie and make special snacks. We especially love Charlie Brown Christmas.

Stefanne Yingling

My family and I Always watch Muppets Christmas Carol and it always gets us in the Christmas spirit.

Alex Ulicny

Two songs trigger my Christmas spirit: Bing Cosby’s White Christmas and Elvis’ Blue Christmas. As far as movies...Love Actually. My daughter and I watch it on Christmas Eve day while the boys wrap presents.

Bonnie Wright

The Polar express is my favorite movie. I watch it with my grandchildren every year

Sandra Sprouse

The Grinch... the original version.


It has to be The Muppet Christmas Carol, movie and soundtrack.


After Thanksgiving the first thing that I listen to is Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas from Kenny G's Miracles cd. It's a good cocoa drinking song. Next favorite would be tv's Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer which I've watched nearly every year since it first came's tradition.

Anne Burton

I love the Carol of the Bells, but In the Bleak Midwinter is my favorite carol.


We have so many Christmas movies that we start watching them, nightly, Thanksgiving night. We always start off with Christmas Vacation, but our favorites are White Christmas, Miracle on 49th Street, Elf, and a few others. Pentatonix and Josh Groban always get me in the Christmas mood while driving around!


I enjoy National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation when it comes on television, and the cartoon version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Reminds me of my childhood!! Jingle Bells!


Movies: It's a Wonderful Life and Christmas in Connecticut

songs: Joy to the World, Snoopy & the Red Baron and Feliz Navidad

Bonnie Davis

Has to be Die Hard. Yes, I’m a non traditionalist!


Love Actually is the movie I watch to the Christmas spirit going. But what makes it “official” for me is watching TCM and catching holiday movies from the 50s and 60s while I stay up and wrap presents.

O Holy Night is my favorite traditional Christmas song. And I LOVE the early Now That’s What I Call Christmas compilations.


Last night I went to the Trans Siberian Orchestra concert and WOW! This may become my new Christmas tradition. In addition, I love the song “Mary Did You Know?” and start singing that as soon as the season arrives.


There are so many songs! I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas, Let It Snow, and Deck the Halls are my top picks.


Cary Grant and The Bishop’s Wife. I love that movie but, to be honest, any and all Hallmark movies. Wonderful!

Sandy C

I have a puzzle that depicts a scene from White Christmas which is my way to start the holiday season.

Lucy Kesler

Oh! Favorite is "Mary Did You Know." Love that song.

Linda L

It’s a Wonderful Life


I really need to see snow before I get into the spirit. We always decorate the tree listening to The Messiah, watch “It’s a WonderfulLife” and other Christmas movies, It hasn’t snowed here in southern NH yet, though, so we will probably fire up the vcr and snuggle up this weekend with “White Christmas.”


The Polar Express is my favorite Christmas movie. I love the book, too. Used to read
it to my children, as they were growing up.

Ann Knepper

Oh my goodness, so many,,,,Elf the movie, Charlie Brown's Christmas and Prep and Landing just to get started


For me it’s the movie Love Actually. I watch it every year faithfully. This year I’m going to watching with a girlfriend. We were chatting and found out we had the same movie tradition so we’re going to do it together next eeekend.


A Christmas Story, which happens in 1040s Indiana. It's so funny,
Song wise, I'd have to say Snoopy's Christmas! The whole album!


Mannheim Steamroller Christmas music is everywhere, but I still love it.


Bing Crosby/David Bowie with Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy medley


White Christmas. It is my very favorite holiday film


Charlie Brown Christmas

Katie R.

The Muppets Christmas Carol is what I start the season off with.

Wendy yount

Hearing the song "Mary did you know" it's awesome.

Nancy F.

It's a Wonderful Life and The Polar Express. Must watches at our house!

Anna Marie

It's a wonderful life is my favorite movie. Having friends and family around is all we need. Except for yarn of course.

amy g

One of my favorite Christmas movies is Holiday Inn, with Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire. It was the movie that introduced the song White Christmas. The music is great - there are some parts that are very 'of the era'- but it just a fun Christmas movie.

I have about six CD's that I play while I'm baking and reading and knitting so picking one favorite song is very hard. From Thanksgiving to New Year's Eve, it's all Christmas all the time.


We love to see Trans Siberian Orchestra each year. It's one show that always puts me in the Christmas spirit. My favorite part is when it snows on the audience.....just magical.


It's a Wonderful Life is my all time favorite Christmas movie.


I love Christmas vacation and the Elf!


I've begun to really enjoy Elf. But I watch it all year long!


My dad and I are obsessed with Christmas! Every year we put on our local Christmas radio station right after thanksgiving dinner and sing and dance and laugh. Dad and I share a really funny memory of a middle school performance of the song I’ll be home for Christmas that my brother performed and that has turned into our all time favorite. We’ll be sitting around and as soon as the song comes on we’ll sing at the top of our lungs and with over exaggerated motions we’ll embarrass my brother. Our family through the years has come to expect our hilarious performance. It’s something special that I love getting to share with my dad.


“O Come, O Come Emmanuel” is the song that really speaks to me this time of year.

Patricia Mego

Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer!

Betty Randall

My favourite this year is the song, I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas

Enjoy 😁

Kimberly Townsend

When I hear the song Sleigh ride it instantly puts me in the holiday spirit and when Rudolph the red nose reindeer airs I definitely know that the holiday season has arrived. I have no children at home anymore but I will not miss seeing Rudolph when it is on.


I love me some Michael Bublé and Home Alone is one of our favorite “Christmas” movies. An evening of DeBrand Hot Chocolate and the lights at Franke Park are usually on the list too.


Definitely The Grinch. I watch the animated and Jim Carey movie every year.


I have to watch The Grinch. I also live the Mannheim Steamroller Christmas music.

Cheryl Pratt

Elf! My sisters and their families come to my house an Christmas Eve and we always have it on, even if we’re not paying close attention to it.


Frosty mornings like today, but especially Snoopy and Charlie Brown!,


Christmas Vacation...any Christmas song by Karen Carpenter

Rhonda Atkinson

I love Elf. I laugh, am sad, and laugh more. I even sing along much to the displeasure of my family. HaHa


Our Christmas viewing tradition is "It's a Wonderful Life" on Christmas eve, followed by Ralphie in his pink bunny suit in "Christmas Story" on Christmas day .... oh and the "Godfather" seems to always be on, since nothing says Christmas like family!

Karen Aguilar

Always White Christmas!


I love to watch Elf as it's great for laughs and fun. We also love to watch Three Days as well. A nice reminder of how precious life is.

Sylvia King

The Christmas Story is the family favorite. It's a wonderful life too


Carol of the Bells

Norma Smith

I love all Christmas movies but I enjoy the original Grinch and love to watch ELF.

Molly mcginnis

My family LOVES Elf. I know it's been mentioned a few times here, but hands down nothing gets us more in the Christmas spirit. Also, I really enjoy The Polar Express. When I was a teacher I used to read that to my kiddos and then we would watch the movie :) fun memories

Dee Johnson

Christmas Vacation; I love to watch and listen to my husband..laugh at the same parts the same way every year.


Carnie & Wendy Wilson's Christmas album.

Amanda Guthrie

I love Elf and The Santa Clause!

shelly sargent

My favorite Christmas Movie is White Christmas with Bing Crosby. It helps put me in the special mood I only feel at Christmas.


A little snow, hot chocolate, and the Grinch put me into the holiday spirit

Susan Kirkland

I’m excited every year when the local radio station switches to all Christmas music. We have a radio in our horse barn and I’m so happy when I walk out there and discover that. I enjoy the older versions of the songs. Our daughter is 17 now, but when she was very little, “Santa Baby” came on the radio. My daughter looked at me and said, “Heetah not a baby!” Great memory! 😊

Donna Van Dalen

Have to watch Albert Finney’s Scrooge. The musical and sing 🎶Christmas is my Favorite time of year ! 🎶 Love this movie!


I love, love, love the "old time" Christmas cartoon shows like Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer and Frosty the Snowman. I identify with the misfit toys, LOL!

Mercy Hernandez (PCV Georgia)

I’m currently very far from home. I’m serving as a peace corps volunteer in the republic of Georgia (think Russia...not the state Georgia) and this is my first Christmas I will spend away from my family. Not a single soul speaks Spanish here, everyone speaks Georgian, Russian, or Romani (a dialect for the local gypsies here), so when I went into my local bookstore/cafe to grab a coffee I overheard them playing “Feliz Navidad”. I was so taken by surprise that I had the biggest smile on my face and every Georgian looking at me like I was a lunatic as I sang along with it. Feliz navidad was always one of my favorite holidays songs and hearing Spanish again in a country thousands of miles from sunny Southern California, had me a little choked up when it was playing. Something as simple as a holiday song can definitely lift ones spirits when you’re away from the ones you miss and love so much.

Lise Gray

White Christmas! I love this movie so much! And cry my eyes out at the end every time! Thanks for the giveaway.


Christmas in Connecticut is my favorite Christmas movie of all time! Definitely gets me ready for Christmas Knitting!


I confess that "Alvin and the Chipmunks" always takes me back to childhood and puts me in the mood for Christmas 😆

Kathy Richardson

I watch Christmas movies all of December! I have my favorites I watch with the grandkids and my favorites like It’s A wonderful life and white Christmas and I watch with the hubby !

Rita Schultz

Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow!


Scrooge (the musical with Albert Finney).


I love "Silver Bells" and randomly sing, "It's Christmas time in the city" at the top of my lungs randomly throughout the season.


We have snow this morning and I'm going to go make hot chocolate right now!! Movies? Santa Claus Conquers the Martians and Christmas in Connecticut.

Abigail Warach

I love watching the romantic Christmas movies all month long, they are perfect to knit to. Arthur Christmas, Elf, Mickey's Twice Upon A Christmas are also favorites in my house. I'm a hot chocolate person. Two nights ago I had a fun time with my children in the kitchen as we each helped to make yummy breakfast for dinner.


I also love all of the Dr Who Christmas episodes.

Wendy Wickham

The Holiday, isn't Chistmas until I've seen it at least once!

Holly Beam

O Holy Night is my favorite song for Christmas. My Dad played the trumpet and he always played that song for church services. In later years, I played the piano accompaniment with him. Every year when I hear that song, it brings back wonderful memories.


I love listening to the Trans-Siberian Orchestra at Christmas time. And my new favorite is the Pentatonix's Christmas music.


When I hear The Waitresses "Christmas Wrapping." It's the best Christmas song and it just makes me dance and want to share Christmas joy!


It’s true Christmas spirit that you are so generous. I sincerely hope that whoever wins this is someone who needs extra Christmas cheer in their life ☺️

Lucy Shaw

Love your sick yarn and this really gets everyone in the Christmas sick mood thanks

Julia Porter

Harry conick jr music puts me in the spirit. Also Judy Garland singling Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas!

Kris C

"White Christmas" is an annual tradition in our house...hubby and I curl up together and watch it every year. I even bought us matching "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas" mugs to use for our cocoa when we watch it this year (early Christmas gift to commemorate our tradition)! It's our favorite Christmas movie. :)


It HAS to be the movie White Christmas for the holiday spirit.

Anna Hensley

In our house, it's a tie between watching Elf and listening to Trans-Siberian Orchestra--especially Christmas in Sarajevo!


Home Alone!! Love that one every single year.


The Nutcracker music! And possibly the Claymation Christmas Special; I always liked it as a kid.

Annette Poole

I have to watch A Christmas Story every year.
