Let me preface this by saying that Christmas is easily my favorite holiday. I’m the person on the street who strings up Christmas lights on Nov. 1 and has the Christmas tree in her front window on display well before Thanksgiving. I’m "that girl" and I have no shame about it. So before I get into the 7 classic holiday movies I can’t stand, know that there are far more I am totally obsessed with. You aren’t going to find Elf on this list since it’s one I can be heard quoting year-round. And Home Alone is in my top 10 or so favorites for the holiday season. There are just some holiday movies that I never really understood the hoopla around. Like A Charlie Brown Christmas or A Muppet Christmas Carol.
As a kid, I wasn’t wild about either of those movies, no matter how *timeless* they’re supposed to be. Maybe I’ve been conditioned to enjoy modern movies in high definition or the best animation available. I just can't get behind some of the classic holiday movies that some people go bananas for this time of the year. I realize that, ironically, I probably sound like a total Grinch. Trust me — I love Christmas and all the trimmings. There are just a select few movies I refuse to force myself to like just because they’re considered holiday staples.
