Moose Mugs - Christmas Vacation
Moose Mugs - Christmas Vacation

Well pals, I dunno about choo but I just loooves to has a relax on da sofa an watch movies with ma mum. Mum (as some of you may know) is a great one for a good blub. She seems to have extra waterworks at Christmas when we likes to watch some of our favourite movies!
 
See what you fink of ma recommendashuns (not in any paticular order) and let me know yours too!

It’s A Wonderful Life (1946): Mum’s absolute favourite Christmas movie. She bin watchin it for years. It’s a true classic. Not much you can say bout it except everyone  should be MADE to watch dis filum.

Scrooged (1988): Bill Murray places the TV executive wif a heart of stone. Mum watches this one every year too and still larfs!

The Santa Clause (1994):  Tim Allen accidentally kills Santa…oops! He then has to take his job, unwillingly at first but then growing to love it.

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation (1989): The Griswold family Christmas vacation is one of our favourites too. There are so many great one-lines an da appearance of those great egg-nog Moose Mugs!! We wud love to av dem!

Gremlins at the movies!
Gremlins (1984): Those little evil green monsters tear up a small town during the holidays wiv hilarious results!

The Muppet Christmas Carol (1992): Michael Caine is miserly Ebenezer Scrooge and Kermit the Frog is kindly Bob Cratchit in dis take on the Dickens tale.

White Christmas (1954): Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye are two GIs come home from WWII, fall in love with singing-and-dancing sisters and help their general with his failing Vermont inn. Great singing from Bing!

Miracle on 34th Street (1947 and 1994): We likes da 1947 version an da 1994 remake! Kris Kringle is put on trial to determine if he’s legally insane or is he really Father Christmas. Watch it to find out  if he gets locked up (mmm I fink you probly guessed the outcome of dat one ;) ).

Those are jus a few of our favourite movies dat we watch over and over again at Christmas-time.  There’s loads of uvva ones we like such as: 
  • Bad Santa
  • Home Alone
  • The Nightmare Before Christmas
  • Elf
  • The Grinch
  • An All Dogs Christmas Carol
  • Die Hard
  • The Bells of St Mary’s
Let me know wot you fink of ma list and tell me your favourites! Happy Movie Christmas ma pals!
