Best Christmas Movies Ever - Guest Post by Candace Jane Kringle

Welcome to the virtual book tour for North Pole High: A Rebel Without a Claus by Candace Jane Kringle. Today, I have let her take over the blog for a little while. Thanks for stopping by!

People are always asking me what my favorite Christmas movies are, as if Christmas movies are the only movies I watch. Actually, my favorite movie of all time is Grease. Nary a Christmas tree in sight. Not even a card. But okay, I get it. I’m Santa’s daughter, so I have to have an opinion on Christmas movies. Okay, here they are...

Miracle on 34th Street (1947). Little Natalie Wood thinks a department store Santa is really my dad. Her creepy babysitter sets out to prove in court that she’s right so he can hit on her single mom. Trivia: Edmund Gwenn is the only actor to win an Oscar for playing my dad. So far.

Elf (2003). My dad kidnaps a baby from an orphanage, raises him as an elf, then when he grows too big to fit in at the Workshop, sends him off to New York to find his real father. Sure, there are some inaccuracies in the North Pole scenes (swans a-swimming, narwhals don’t talk!), but Will Ferrell is hilarious as Buddy the Elf.

Bad Santa (2003). An alcoholic Santa robs department stores. Daddy banned this one from the Pole, but everyone at school downloaded it to see what the fuss was about. Now I watch it in my room whenever I’m really mad at Daddy. It’s sooo funny.

A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas (2011). Estranged stoners learn the true meaning of Christmas after shooting my dad out of his sleigh. Another one my dad hates. I’m just glad they didn’t try to use my title, North PoleHigh.” LOL.

The Santa Clause (1994). Funnyman Tim Allen accidentally kills my dad, then assumes his identity to make his son love him again. Merry Christmas to me, right?

Starting to see why I don’t love Christmas movies? These are the cream of the crop. At least until my book hits the big screen. :)
