It’s the most wonderful time of the year where we all gather as families (though, unless they’re already in your bubble we don’t recommend that this year), decorate the house and tree with Christmas lights and ornaments and sit down in front of our television screens with a nice hot cup of cocoa to watch some of our many favorite Christmas movies. This year The Word is celebrating 12 Days of Christmas Movies with our favorites to watch around the happiest time of the year. I hope you enjoy these as much as we do and if you haven’t seen them be sure to seek them out.
“Elf” is a one of a kind Christmas classic! Will Ferrell is absolutely wonderful as Buddy, watching him in character is so magical. Buddy, who was raised by elves, is now venturing away from everything he’s known at the North Pole and is headed to New York City to reunite with his biological father. The humor in this movie is unmatched and the heartfelt moments make it so special. The entire cast including Zooey Deschanel, James Caan, Mary Steenburgen, and many others do an outstanding job. “Elf” is insanely quotable and perfect for the entire family.
"Elf" is streaming on Hulu, Amazon Prime Video and AMC.com
