Late November update - Christmas Is Coming

As the turning point of the year that commercials, radio stations, and shopping malls now announce the day after Halloween, Christmas is coming and this year it is on December the 25 th.

I have a personal rule that I impose on myself and my wife, mostly myself, is to play a Christmas record the first morning that there is snow on the ground. Then it must be until we made our Christmas tree around American Thanksgiving that I’ll start listening to Holiday songs until the 25th of December.

Same thing for Christmas movies, but I start closer to Noël because otherwise I’ll be rewatching some titles in the month. 

For the end of 2013 I’ve decided to make December the Holiday month and there will be lots of Chrsitmas movies reviewed here.

My favourite National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, then Elf, The Polar Express, The Shop Around the Corner, A Christmas Story, A Christmas Tale and many others!
Don’t forget to check out my already written christmas movie reviews :

Die Hard (John McTiernan, 1988)
Fanny and Alexander
(Ingmar Bergman, 1982)
It’s a Wonderful Life (Frank Capra, 1946)
Mon oncle Antoine
(Claude Jutra, 1971)

What’s your favourite holiday movie? Is there any Christmas films lesser known that I should discover this season?


  1. On Christmas Day, I always try to watch The Shop Around the Corner (1940). It's a wonderful romantic comedy starring James Stewart and Margaret Sullavan and it ends on Christmas Eve.

    1. It's one of my favourite films of the Holidays! The young Stewart is very good and it is Lubitsch after all!

  2. I now see you already had that one! Well, great minds think alike.

  3. I was thinking of checking out a few Chrismas classics, which I have never seen, so I can't say if they are worth it: Miracle on 34th street (1947), Remember the Night (1940), and Scrooge (1951). Have fun with your marathon :)

    1. Miracle on 34th Street both adaptations are on my list and I'll read again Dickens' A Christmas Carol (story of Scrooge). I also have my mind to review some tv classics like the Grinch, Charlie Brown, etc.
