We all have those movies we love to watch at Christmas don’t we? Being a hopeless romantic most of mine are centered around just that. So if you haven’t got them, do not hesitate to run out and rent them right now! Better yet, click on the links I have provided and buy your own copies.

*Note, that I have added a blu ray link to some (I don’t see the reason to buy a movie in blu ray if it was not originally filmed in HD). So be careful when you are purchasing from one of these links, don’t buy blu ray if you don’t own a blu ray player! If in doubt, buy the less expensive, regular DVD.

So here you go, Susan Garrett’s top ten Christmas Movies (sorry to disappoint you David Letterman favs I am not going to do this in reverse order . . . I also read the last chapter of any book long before I should and sneak peaks at Christmas presents when given the chance:)).
