Looking for a Christmas movie to check out? Here are just some of the movies we have at LTPL. (Descriptions are from our catalog.)
Home Alone: When eight-year-old Kevin McCallister’s family left for vacation, they forgot one minor detail: Kevin!
Home Alone 2: Young Kevin is on his own again, but this time, he is loose in New York City with credit cards enough to allow for fun. Then he runs into his old enemies, the crooks who tried to break into his home the Christmas before.
National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation: In this 3rd Lampoon outing, Clark is determined to have an old fashioned Christmas. The disasters begin when his crude cousin from Kansas arrives unannounced.
Jingle All the Way: The true meaning of Christmas — desperate last-minute shopping — is the subject of this holiday-themed comedy.
The Santa Clause: Scott is distressed to learn that his ex-wife and her husband have informed his son, Charlie, that there is no Santa Claus. While a sullen Charlie visits his dad on Christmas Eve, a noise on the roof brings them outside. It turns out that there is a Santa after all, and Scott has just accidentally killed him. Because of “the Santa Clause,” Scott inherits the job of Santa. As the next year passes, Scott rapidly gains weight, grows a white beard and meets the elf Bernard. Charlie’s stepdad becomes concerned about Scott and forces him to undergo a psychiatric evaluation.
The Santa Clause 2: After eight good years as Santa Claus, things start to get complicated for Scott Calvin when his son ends up on the “naughty” list, and he finds out that according to the rules Santa must be married.
The Santa Clause 3: Santa has his hands full when his in-laws come for a visit and Jack Frost wants to take over Christmas.
A Christmas Story: A young boy must convince his parents that a toy rifle is the only Christmas gift that will make Christmas worthwhile. Not only do his parents face what many other parents do during that time of the year, but their actions fit in with the All-American Christmas.
