holiday movie blog post November 2018
“A Christmas Story has to be played at least twice in my house during the holiday season. I can't get enough of the scene where Ralphie comes down the stairs in his unfortunate bunny costume!”
Erica Orecchio, Event Coordinator, Canadian Credit Union Association 

“Mickey's Christmas Carol made a big impression on me as a kid as I would watch my VHS tape over and over again. Last year I had the chance to watch it again and I was still moved just as I was a kid and that's the holiday spirit!”
Julie McMartin, Event Planner, Acklands-Grainger 

“A Christmas Carol. A classic that I have seen at least in 10 different versions from the original musical to the Disney's version! Love how Mr. Scrooge changes his heart and approach to life after being visited by 3 spirits: past, present and future.”
Norella Rubin, Event Planning Analyst, BMO Financial Group 

“The Santa Clause with Tim Allen is my favourite holiday movie. There is something special about when Scott and Charlie arrive to the North Pole and see Santa's Workshop for the first time that always gives me those happy holiday feelings - plus some great laughs along the way!”
Amanda Hansen, Corporate Sales Manager, Vintage Hotels 

“Lampoon's Xmas. The humour is timeless.”
Erika Agnew, Executive Administrative Assistant, Investment Management Corporation of Ontario (IMCO) 

“Miracle on 34th Street. This is a true 'Holiday Classic'. It embodies the spirit of Christmas and the sentimentality of the holiday season. It is a 'must watch' every holiday in my household!”
Poonam Ruparelia, Event Management Leader 

“Home Alone is by far my favourite movie around the holidays!”
Leanne McCartney, Corporate Sales Manager, InterContinental Toronto Yorkville 

“It is a toss up for me between A Christmas Story and National Lampoons Christmas Vacation. However, A Christmas Story would be the one to win out. It's a nice throwback to a simpler time in life, true family values and of course, who can forget the Leg Lamp! It's all about the innocence of a young boy's wish for Christmas and the family traditions.”
Stephanie Rapko, CMP, Sales and Marketing Manager, Reach Global Marketing 

“I’m definitely a Love Actually movie gal!”
Kalinda Jessett, Events Manager, Invesco 

“Elf is my favourite holiday movie. Not only is it hilarious but Elf's diet is #goals for me. Mmmmm candy corn and maple syrup!”
Jennifer Pelletier, Senior Coordinator, Parks and Recreation Ontario 

Register today so that you don’t miss out on a night of warm memories, joyous laughter and holiday magic!
