We are an eclectic bunch in the Mad House, but one thing we all love is Christmas Movies and snuggling up on the couch watching them together. Now thanks to Laura Ashley we have a new throw to snuggle under and watch our movies and the Tartan Cranberry Check Cotton Mix Throw is perfect in colour to match our traditional red and green decoration, so henceforth will become known “The Christmas Throw”!
There is also lots of other things that can be done with a Laura Ashley throw, just take a look at this round up post where other bloggers show what they did with theirs.
I would never attempt to wrap the presents without Elf on the screen and a Baileys in my glass! Now bear in mind that Mini is seven and Maxi eight and me and MadDad a lot, lot older (in fact I have a significant birthday this Friday)!
Our current favorites are:
- Disney Buddies: The Search for Santa Paws [DVD]
- Prep & Landing
- The Santa Clause Movie Collection (although there is some discussion over which one is best)
- The Grinch [DVD] 
- Miracle On 34th Street
- Arthur Christmas
- The Polar Express (although I find the conductor one of the most scariest animations ever!)
- Home Alone/Home Alone 2 /Home Alone 3/Home Alone 4 [DVD]
- Mr. Popper’s Penguins
- The Muppet Christmas Carol
We have our Advent Box and it is filled with Christmas Books and films that we get out year after year and add to them too and the throw will be added to it this year when it goes away. I so look forward to winter evenings with the boys after school once we have done a craft where we can shut the cold, dark world out and enjoy a film together. We have had such joy introducing them to classics like Gremlins and Home Alone.
I would love to know what movies I have missed and what would be on your list.
Disclosure: I was given a new throw and compensated for this post, plus it contains affiliate links too.
I am a failure at Christmas movies, having seen only Home Alone, Santa Claus the Movie (the one with Dudley Moore as the elf, right?), a bit of miracle on 34th Street and a bit of The Grinch. However, I did go to a local arts centre a few years ago to watch ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ and I consider that to be a lovely Christmas movie. I’m welling up just thinking about it, what a saddo.
