AUDIO: Mallory Hope talks about her favorite Christmas movies.

Mallory Hope (Christmas movies) OC: …this year. :43
“Christmas time is my favorite time of the year and I love the music, movies and the TV shows. I think some of my favorite movies are Holiday Inn and White Christmas and every year, we always watch The Grinch with my nieces and now nephew, but they absolutely love The Grinch. Always every year, we have to watch the Santa Clause movies (starring Tim Allen). I actually really enjoy them, and they’re really funny. It makes you want to believe in Santa and go back to being a kid and how exciting it was. And we also like to watch Chevy Chase’s Christmas Vacation. Every year, I probably watch it 20 times, but it’s hilarious, and it makes me think of my family. We watch it on Christmas Day, and we watch the parade, and I can’t wait to sit around and watch the holiday movies again this year.”
