Blood Donors But Make It Christmas

I work for a blood bank and I was trying to find something that captures the spirit of the season and some stuff I like. Blood Donation, Christmas Movies and Vampires. I believe this covers a lot of ground.

And So It Begins – National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

The first cinematic movie we see each year is National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. It’s a timeless classic. It enhances our holiday spirit. This movie is highly quotable any time of year. Joy to the Griswolds.

Love Actually, Is All-Around #loveactually


This is a great movie that brings together an all-star cast and a great romantic comedy story. It’s also very British so you know it has to be good. It’s not Christmas without this charming flick to heighten the holiday mood. Christmas is all around you know.

Christmas Is All Around Us….Love Actually

Love, Love Actually!

It’s British, It’s about Christmas…what’s not to love. An all-star cast and the writing of Richard Curtis make this brilliant. I love Bill Nighy in this flick, he is my spirit animal if I were an aging rock star who cusses like the rainbow. This movie is a tradition this time of year.


A Christmas Story, A Classic Holiday Flick

The movie where we learned about electric sex and how a Red Rider will shoot your eye out. Not to mention the triple-dog-dare. This movie is about the universal angst a child has when they really want something for Christmas and will do whatever it takes to get it.

This is one of the greatest Christmas movies ever.

Holiday Movies – Elf


Will Ferrell is fantastic in this story of a man named Buddy who was raised from infancy in the North Pole by elves who work in Santa’s workshop. He finds his real dad in New York City and adventures ensue with his new found brother. He also finds love with a department store worker named Jovie. Buddy helps restore the Christmas spirit. We love this movie, there is some memorable dialogue that we love to quote all the way through.
