Family Holiday Movies

by Nicole on December 12, 2012

All of the movies listed below are currently out on DVD for purchase.  They are all heart-warming holiday movies! I guess I should tell you know that I love holiday movies like this even though I don’t celebrate Christmas.  The DVR is full of holiday movies and my husband just shakes his head.  I find the movies comforting and enjoy their messages!

Annie Claus is Coming to Town –  It’s finally time for Santa’s daughter to see the world. And for a girl raised in the North Pole, what location could be more exciting than sunny California? Through his magical snow globe, the proud papa watches Annie (Maria Thayer) spread Christmas spirit throughout L.A., making friends with the owner of Candy Cane Inn and waltzing into a job at Wonderland Toys. But Santa’s lingering concern is the man his daughter will choose to take over the affairs of the North Pole. Will it be Ted (Sam Page), the kid at heart who sells vintage toys in a digital world, or the imposter, a Hollywood actor hired by the Senior Elf who wants the holiday all to himself? Santa knows that only Annie can make that decision—and that the fate of Christmas rests in her heart.

Christmas Miracle –  This original and heartfelt story shows that nothing is impossible when an unlikely group of eight strangers must spend their Christmas together because of an unexpected blizzard. Despite their differences they work together and prove anything can happen during the Christmas season, even miracles. Approved for families and viewers of all ages by the DOVE Foundation, Christmas Miracle stars Randal Edwards (“The Best Years”), Siobhan Williams (Flicka: Country Pride) and Valin Shinyei (Mrs. Miracle).

The Christmas Pageant —  When big-shot Broadway director Vera Parks (Melissa Gilbert) gets fired from yet another job, she must subject herself to directing a small-town Christmas pageant. But culture-shocked Vera is stunned by the production’s simplicity and tries to back out of the deal. She is again outraged when she learns her ex-fiancé Jack (Robert Mailhouse) had the audacity to recommend her for the job. Still, there’s just something—or someone—that won’t allow Vera to leave. Enchanted by the charms of community, Vera comes to discover a new love in her work and an old love in Jack. Will the diva director drop her defenses long enough to let love in?

My favorite is Annie Claus is Coming to Town.  I saw it last year on the Hallmark channel and was hoping to find it again this year on TV – I’m happy to have found it on DVD because I thought it was an uplifting and entertaining movie! I hadn’t seen the other 2 yet and thought they were also excellent holiday movies.  Noah watched them all with me and we curled up on the sofa with some popcorn on  rainy afternoon and enjoyed the movies together.

I received all 3 movies to facilitate review. All opinions are my own.
