This time of year there's not much of a shortage of Christmas movies to keep you in the holiday spirit. From timeless classics like Whtie Christmas to those cult classics of today such as Elf, these movies are as much a staple of the season as decorating the tree.

Although Hollywood has brought us to the North Pole and back, there's a great collection of wintertime favorite flicks that were filmed right here in the Great Lakes state. A few years back I was lucky enough to be an extra in the rom-com Hallmark-style movie A Christmas Movie Christmas, filmed in Frankenmuth. If you look closely you can see me walk across a bride and wave. Hold the applause.
