I’m pretty well known for my war on anything Christmas before Thanksgiving. Save the Pilgrims and all that. Starting on September 1st, I put the breaks on anything Christmas related and revel in my favorite movies with an autumnal theme.
This movies makes me incredibly nostalgic for my elementary school days in Wisconsin. The Thanksgiving play, leaves changing color, the crisp cool morning, ugh, I watch it at least two or three times a month during this season!
-You’ve Got Mail-
Don’t you just love New York in the fall?
Simply one of the best Meg Ryan movies, in my opinion. Did you know that this movie is actually a remake of a remake? The original movie is named The Shop Around the Corner (also the name of Meg Ryan’s character’s store!)
It takes place in 1940’s Budapest with Jimmy Stuart playing a store clerk. It’s a great Christmas movie! The Shop Around the Corner spun off into a musical called In the Good Old Summertime with Judy Garland.
If you love You’ve Got Mail, you need to see these other two gems.
-It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown-
Do I really need to explain myself?
-Growing the Big One-
I happened to catch this one last year on a Redbox night. Cute, sappy, and predictable but really charming. Shannon Doherty has to move back home, doesn’t want to, but shocker finds love in the end!
Stayed tuned for tomorrow’s list!
