I will admit that I’m not a big holiday movie person. It was kind of hard to come up with 10 for this list. A few of these are movies that I watch every year though. And since it’s me, a couple of them are horror. These are in no particular order.
Buddy was a baby in an orphanage who stowed away in Santa’s sack and ended up at the North Pole. Later, as an adult human who happened to be raised by elves, Santa allows him to go to New York City to find his birth father, Walter Hobbs. Hobbs, on Santa’s naughty list for being a heartless jerk, had no idea that Buddy was even born. Buddy, meanwhile, experiences the delights of New York City (and human culture) as only an elf can. When Walter’s relationship with Buddy interferes with his job, he is forced to reevaluate his priorities.
Elf is definitely one of my top 2. I watch it at least once every holiday season.
