I only got a couple of them. A shame! 😀

Carol M December 16, 2013 at 9:28 am

I got all of them except the first one. Love the homes in all these movies!

Trisha Troutz December 16, 2013 at 9:43 am

What a clever idea! I love this and I loved remembering these movies. I watched Home Alone this weekend and I just love the traditional look of this home. Thanks for the Monday quiz!

Candice December 16, 2013 at 10:56 am

Didn’t get them all but it was great fun trying! Love the movie house thing you do, and this was a great way to revisit some of them.

Sil December 16, 2013 at 11:19 am

I watch too many Christmas movies! I got them all! lol I own a few of these as well and I am a BIG fan of TCM!! Great choices!!

I’m impressed, Sil! I thought I was making it a bit of a challenge. Ha. Sounds like you watch them as much as I do! :)

Monique December 16, 2013 at 3:23 pm

I have loved so many of these movies..never saw Christmas in Connecticut..

Must look it up..nor did I see the remake of Miracle on 34th St..Fun post!

Nicole M. December 16, 2013 at 4:04 pm

I knew them all!! I watched Family Stone on a flight home one time. I was sobbing so hard at the end that people were looking at me on the plane. It had to have been the worse movie to show on a plane. It started with just tears and a super runny nose then I was a wreck!

hookedonhouses December 16, 2013 at 4:07 pm

Oh, man, I can imagine. It was hard enough not to go into the “ugly cry” when I saw it in a theater full of people. At least it was dark in there! Ha.

Alie B December 16, 2013 at 6:17 pm

LOL @ ugly cry, Julia. Is there any other kind? My girls hate it when I cry over movies, and that’s only at home! At the theater? Total mortification! 😉 Great post! There are a couple of older movies I haven’t yet seen and I plan to look up over the holidays. I figured out all those I had seen.

Lisa Smith December 16, 2013 at 10:14 pm

What a fun post and clever hints! I got all but “Christmas Vacation”! I had to tell you that the way I found your wonderful blog some three (?) years ago was by “Googling” Funny Farm”! I wanted to know where that had been filmed. I remember reading “according to Hooked on Houses….”. I thought “Hooked on Houses”?!?! What on Earth is that? So…. I clicked on the link and TWO hours later I realized I was DEFINITLY hooked Julia and her hooked on houses!!!!
Just love you both!!!

hookedonhouses December 17, 2013 at 7:23 am

I love that! “Funny Farm” is one of my favorites. And I’m so happy you found your way here, Lisa! xo

Wanda December 17, 2013 at 9:08 am

Love all of these. Also Step Mom has wonderful Christmas scenes in that great old house!

hookedonhouses December 17, 2013 at 12:30 pm

That’s another good one. I love the Stepmom house!

Luciane at December 17, 2013 at 9:36 am

Oh, how fun is this, Julia!!! Love this post… I should get some of these movies and watch with the kids.

Lots of love to you!

The Family Stone is my favorite. I think I look for your post every year during Christmas. :)

hookedonhouses December 17, 2013 at 1:11 pm

I need to watch that one again. It’s been a couple of years. I love that house!

Jonia December 17, 2013 at 7:48 pm

#1,2,3,5,6,10 got ’em. This was a great reminder that I wanted to watch Holiday Inn! You’d posted something about this “house” last year about this time (I believe something controversial in the movie also?), but intentions and all that, I missed it. This is the year! Thanks for the reminder Julia :) I love Christmas houses!!

Rebecca December 18, 2013 at 8:50 am

Long time lurker, first time poster. Holiday Inn was my favorite Christmas movie, watched it every year on TV. “I’m Linda Mason”. I remember when I found it on VHS! (I’m of an age, as they say). That’s when I first saw the dreaded Lincoln’s birthday scenes…I was crushed. All the years I had watched it on TV, Lincoln’s birthday had been edited out. Hasn’t been the same for me since, I don’t watch it anymore. Great house though.

hookedonhouses December 18, 2013 at 9:16 am

I know what you mean, Rebecca. I think a lot of people are shocked to see those scenes for the first time if they only watched the edited version on TV. I know I was!

nanne December 18, 2013 at 4:57 pm

i love your movie holiday house features! thank you!

have you ever featured the house in the fred macmurray/barbara stanwick film, “remember the night”? the home that fred macmurray’s character grew up in is not a huge part of the movie, but it’s a great house.

hookedonhouses December 18, 2013 at 4:59 pm

I haven’t, but I’ve seen that movie and remember that house! Thanks, Nanne. :)

Kristen @ Joyfullythriving December 19, 2013 at 7:37 pm

I got 7 of 10…and I’m currently watching (my favorite!) White Christmas as I guessed the others. Ah, Bing Crosby. What a classic!
