It's time for another round of 5 After 5!  In case you missed it, last week's list was favorite Christmas traditions and if you're new to this series, you can read more about it here - then catch up on all the old editions here.

Today I've got my list of 5 to share, as well as next week's topic for you to stew about over the upcoming days.

And this series is a link party, so be sure to scroll down and join in all the fun with us this week!

List 5 of your favorite Christmas movies

In case you didn't see it or your brain is anything like mine and can't remember 12 minutes ago, much less 12 months, I wrote about my 5 Favorite Christmas Movies last year.

The thing is, I really really really like Christmas movies, so the next five in line are pretty much just as much favorites as those others...

1.  White Christmas

I said it before and I'll say it again: how in the world is Vera Ellen's waist that tiny??

Besides that, I'm sure this movie is pretty much making everyone's list, but what's your favorite part?

Because this is mine:

2.  The Bishop's Wife

This one shouldn't be a surprise at all, seeing as how this guy is my favorite actor of all time.

Never heard of this comedy? Check out the trailer here:

3.  It's a Wonderful Life

Another that will probably show up on everyone's list, but most likely not my favorite line (it's at 1:30 on this clip):

4.  The Year Without Santa Claus

I actually hadn't ever heard of this one before G came along.

Well, that's not true. When he showed it to me the first year we were together, I knew I'd seen it as a kid, but I didn't really remember anything about it.

It, however, is one of his absolute favorite things ever, so we've made it a point to watch it every Christmas Eve (even before Gv came along) and I have to say, I've fallen in love with it, too.

And I can't possibly mention this movie without sticking this tune into your brain:

5.  Die Hard

Two words:

Alan Rickman

I actually don't watch this one every year, but that's just because if I watch the first one, then I have to binge-watch all three and some years, I just can't fit that into the old schedule.

But it's high on the priority list for this year, I can tell you that.

Merry Christmas!!

For next week:

List 5 of your 2017 goals

OhMyGoodness, can you believe that next week is the last day of the year already?

I can't.

I also have no clue what my goals will be, so you may be reading an empty list next week...

And now, here's this week's link party!  Two other fabulous bloggers have teamed up with me to create lists of five each week and we hope that you'll join us, too!

That's right, every post will be read, pinned and tweeted!  

Every Saturday, just stop by one of our three blogs to add your own list of five, then pop over and read as many other posts as you're able to each week - treat it like a true party and really mix it up and mingle with our fun little community!

The rules are simple:  just write your own list following the prompt each week (feel free to interpret it loosely - or in a unique way!), follow each of the three hosts on the social media channel of your choice, and then get into the spirit of the party by grabbing your favorite beverage or snack and reading the lists of the other party-goers.

Your Hosts:
