I Think The Greatest Christmas Movies Are The Comedies - Holiday Entertainment

Updated on June 3, 2014

My Favorite Holiday Entertainment

Some of the greatest Christmas movies are comedies and are great holiday gift ideas. What could be more fun than Chevy Chase in the classic holiday comedy? I first saw this one in the theater and could not stop laughing, many years ago. Every time I watch it I see things I forgot about and the laughter begins again.

The holiday season is usually filled with a lot of stress for most people. I am one of them and one of the best holiday comedies always brings down my stress levels. Who doesn't like to watch the Grinch? People of all ages enjoy being entertained. I know I have watched this show since the day it first came out. I saw the Jim Carey version several times he does a tremendous job being the Grinch. No matter how many times I watch these comedies they still tickles me into laughter.

We like to get together during the holidays with some hot cocoa and fresh popcorn and settle down to some funny dvds. The grand kids like to spend the night on air mattresses in the living room. Of course they stay up most of the night laughing an giggling. My husband usually goes out there and gives the "the talk" so they really think they're getting away with something. In the morning we always have pancake for breakfast and more hot cocoa. I know they love having our special time together and we like the special tradition we created with them.

The best Christmas comedies we watch make us laugh and think about the holiday season. They have a theme that is so impossible that it's funny. When I think about Tim Allen and all of his holiday comedies I smile. The 3 Santa Clause series and The Kranks are hilarious. Then there are others like Elf, and just too many others to name. The greatest ones always end on a happy note with a lovable storyline where the true meaning of the holiday always prevails. They make good holiday gift ideas for people of any age.
