When Christmas rolled around in our first year of dating, I was shocked when Andrew said he hadn’t seen A Christmas Story and he was equally surprised I hadn’t seen National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. Over the years, both retro Christmas flicks have become a holiday viewing tradition for us, and with the addition of kids, so has the Home Alone series. Laughter is our parenting fuel, and each of these films brings lots of chuckles to the nest. The kids still aren’t allowed to see Christmas Vacation because of the mature content, but Home Alone and A Christmas Story have become two holiday films that get watched on repeat in December. With other family and friends having a love of these retro flicks as well, we’ve found great gifts to give that reflect some of the most quoted (think “You’ll shoot your eye out kid!”, “Merry Christmas ya filthy animal”) and or impressionable scenes from the film. They are so well received, so we wanted to share a round up of our favs (we’ve kept our selection family-friendly) 😉
