It's finally here — the season of Advent. From November 28 until December 24 we get to be fully submerged in stories of hope, peace, joy, and love. But — we also get to take part in our favorite Christmas traditions.

So I did what any enneagram number 8 would do, and I asked a probing question about Christmas favorites to keep our staff on their toes. This week I asked our staff what their favorite Christmas movie is, and here is what they had to say...

What is your favorite Christmas movie and why?

Kyla Mikusek: Little Women, the Greta Gerwig version. I always loved the Winona Ryder version but now my daughter and I watch the new one together and its just so beautiful and cozy.

Rod Myers: Home Alone.... The ending....

Jennifer Wright: A Christmas Story because it's all things fun and brings a bit of nostalgia of being a kid.

Shannon Pugh: A Christmas Story... How could you NOT love it??????

Scott McClellan: Probably "The Grinch" (the one featuring the voice of Benedict Cumberbatch) because it makes me laugh AND the Grinch's transformation gets me every time.

Amy Aupperlee: Gremlins! jk, jk...but Gizmo! My favorite is Miracle on 34th Street - it captures the wonder of the season and snapshots so well the tiny and giant miracles that happen throughout Christmas.

Penny Jones: Christmas Vacation - I'm not one who watches movies multiple times but I always enjoy this one! It's so grounding and humbling as a member of a slightly dysfunctional blended family, when I was a member of corporate America and the expectations that come with that, as a human being and how everyone celebrates the birth of our Lord differently based upon their social status, age, traditions, family of origin and the list goes on. And, of course Cousin Eddie has a category all his own. When the Christmas lights finally come on and Oh Come All Ye Faithful plays, I feel loved and blessed to live among those that God has chosen for me - taking one step at a time in His Light and Love.

Nandi Roszhart: Jingle Jangle because of the all black cast.

Darcy Peterson: Probably the Muppets Christmas Carol. It takes me back to my childhood because I always watched the muppets and I just love the story of the Christmas Carol. It's a story of redemption and forgiveness. Who doesn't love a story like that? My second favorite would be "The Man Who Invented Christmas" which is a movie about Charles Dickens.

Amy Owen: ELF. It makes me SO happy. Smiling's my favorite.

Alban Snider: Elf, because it's delightful.

Bryan Eck: Die Hard. It has everything you need from a action movie and created the genre of "stuck in ....." and bad guys are all around.....

Now that this research has been done, it is clear to me our staff may need to have a Christmas movie night. Probably to watch Elf, since it's the BEST Christmas movie to exist.
