The Christmas Story.’ It reminds me of certain events that happened during my childhood in our family.”

Christmas with the Kranks.’ It’s about a family going through the Chevy Chase-type of situation where nothing seems to go right. Everyone needs to laugh on Christmas.”

Elf.’ It’s so funny, and Will Ferrell is amazing in it.”

The Santa Clause’ with Tim Allen. I watched it a lot when I was younger, so it’s one of those movies that’s stuck with me, I guess, not for any particular reason.”

Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence. It starred David Bowie but wasn't actually set in Lawrence.

Tyger_Lily nailed it with Christmas Vacation. A close second would be Scrooged with Bill Murray. "I'm aliiiiivvvve and soooo are yooouuu!"

Here's the house from "A Christmas Story". Some guy bought it on Ebay a couple years ago for $99k and restored it to the way it looked in the film:

Home Alone. Kind of surprised no one has mentioned it yet.

A Christmas Carol 1951 Renown Studios Starring Alastair Sim. The George C. Scott and Patrick Stewart versions are pure scene-chewing butchery.

I like home alone, also. It was on last night, and even though I have the dvd, I was going to sit and watch it.

ohjayhawk 10 years, 2 months ago

I do that too. It's a bit strange. I have a movie on DVD (and have seen it numerous times), but while flipping through the channels, I'll come across it and have to stop and watch. However, if it's a movie I haven't seen, I don't like watching it for the first time with all of the commercials and edits.

I love A Christmas Story, and I also love White Christmas - the singing, the dancing, the romance- now that's a classic!

Or is it Lethal Weapon? The Lea just didn't look right.

Trading Places - Nice!!

Christmas Vacation, Christmas Story and Elf are the three we watch on 24th - 25th. The Santa Clause and The Grinch (Jim Carey) have been regulars all December long for the kiddo's.

A Charlie Brown Christmas and It's A Wonderful Life

sgtwolverine 10 years, 2 months ago

You know, I watched a few minutes of Polar Express, but I had to turn it off. The animation was quite lifeless.

I'm going to vote for A Charlie Brown Christmas; even though it's a tv show, it outshines everything else in my eyes.

Animated movies: "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" and "Charlie Brown Christmas."
