There are certain movies that MUST be seen during the holidays. I’m not going to give you a ‘list-icle” of the top 10 best Christmas movies because there are enough of those out there. No, I’m going to share a couple printables based on a couple of our favorite movies – that we can only watch after the kid is in bed. Intrigued? Click through to get a holiday laugh!
If you ask my husband one thing that we should do before the holiday season is over, it wouldn’t be ice skating, sipping hot cocoa by a fire, or any of the more nostalgic (and socially acceptable) bits of parenting suggestions. Oh no, friends.
If you ask my dear hubby what we should do that is holiday themed, he would reply, “Watch Die Hard. Or Die Hard 2. Oh, wait. Not Die Hard 2. Die Hard 3. Or 4.” pause “Oh, and 5. They’re all okay, but let’s not watch 2.” pause “After Elise goes to bed.”
So this printable is for him. Should you happen to enjoy it, too, just click here for this Die Hard Christmas movie printable or on the picture for the download.
If it made you smile, how about sharing it on Pinterest or Facebook? Are guys even on Pinterest? My husband’s Pinterest is a series of sites: Gizmodo, The Awesomer, and Jalopnik. Buit I digress – if you’d like to share…
Whether or not you think Die Hard is a holiday movie, how about one more holiday-themed? Another one my husband will suggest we watch is Elf. Who doesn’t smile when you picture Will Ferrell dressed as Buddy the Elf?
I came across this picture and had to share it with you because even though we don’t do the Elf on a Shelf, I know a lot of you have started the tradition. From Steph at A Little Moore Blog, I give you the “Buddy the Elf” outfit for your Elf on the Shelf (click on the image or link for the source of the photo). How stinkin’ adorable is this? Steph actually has made a business of making tiny outfits for the little elves. Check out her blog for ideas / orders.
Because we were just talking about it, I guarantee we will watch this movie tonight after the little one goes to bed. If you’ve seen Elf, you know there are a metric TON of good quotes from that movie. Some that come to mind:
1. The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.
2. I just like to smile. Smiling’s my favorite.
3. I passed through the seven levels of the Candy Cane forest, through the sea of swirly twirly gum drops, and then I walked through the Lincoln Tunnel.
That last one makes me laugh out loud every time I hear it or read it. I’ve made myself a printable for that one, but thought I’d share this Elf Christmas movie printable with you:
In related news, isn’t syrup a funny word to type? If you’d rather share this sweet printable (get it?) on Pinterest or Facebook, here’s a shareable version:
I hope you had fun with this, we sure have. We’re currently relaxing in a cabin, spending our days touring through the Hoh National Rain Forest and our nights enjoying holiday movies (some even without the kiddo). And because it’s the holiday season, how about one more printable for good measure (even though it’s not a Christmas movie printable):
I hope you’re having a wonderful week, and the happiest of holiday seasons. Next week, I hope to present you with some last-minute-but-seriously-awesome gift ideas. See you then!
