The Scribe’s favorite Christmas movies

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Or is it? I can’t tell anymore with the ridiculousness that is 2020, but regardless, I’m excited for Christmas, and to be honest, I think it’s because of the pandemic.  

     During a normal year, I’m not the biggest Christmas fan. Most of my friends call me a Grinch (convenient, because it’s my favorite Christmas movie; I just get the guy). But with the pain and loss and depression that has been 2020, the Christmas lights at the end of the tunnel gives me a breath of relief.  

     But we’re stuck inside! The case numbers are higher than ever before! What on earth will we do? 

     Binge. All. The. Christmas. Movies. (And get drunk off eggnog while doing it.) After all, what else are you going to do? 

    So, without further ado, here are some of The Scribe staff’s favorite Christmas movies:
