There's nothing in TV (that I could find) so I put on my favorite Christmas movie- A Christmas Carol. The George C Scott version. I love this movie.

So, now I'm wondering...What is your favorite Christmas movie?

I guess I'd have to say:

The Bishop's Wife - Cary Grant, Loretta Young and David Niven.

Oops... Forgot: Polar Express

I like almost any version of The Christmas Carol - especially Mr. Magoo.

Also Jean Shepard's Christmas Story.

I love when this topic comes up every year!

I have several "must watch" movies, now, but the top of the list is "We're No Angels".

Bogart, Ustinov, Aldo Ray, Basil Rathbone, Leo G. Carroll, murderers and thieves and convicts. Christmas time at Devil's Island, what's not to love?

I love the Mr. Magoo version of A Christmas Carol! Haven't seen it in awhile, though.
I like Holiday Inn too.
But NL Christmas Vacation is my happy go-to Christmas movie.

Miracle on 34th Street. Original or the remake. Doesn't matter to me. I love that movie.

Take a guess at mine...(*cough-cough* tag line...)

I also love The Bishop's Wife, It's a Wonderful Life, Scrooged (The bitch hit me with a toaster!), The Family Stone, Meet Me in St. Louis, While You Were Sleeping, Holiday Inn and Step Mom (I consider that a holiday movie.)

Another vote for Christmas Vacation.

T/J for a true story:
We have probably watched that thing five hundred times. And the first Christmas after we built our house, JM picked out Clark Griswold's tree, no lie. That sucker was HUGE. We have 12 ft ceilings in the living room and had to cut a foot off the bottom with the chain saw because we couldn't stand it up once we put it in the stand. And then, when I clipped the net to open it up, ds(then)17 said, "Little full! Lot of sap!" Almost wet my pants.

Christmas Vacation. And ELF. Both of those movies never fail to make me laugh.

I can't believe I forgot Emmet Otter's Jug Band Christmas! I love that show.

Me, too! It's become something of a holiday tradition to watch it as we decorate the tree. (Watching out for squirrels, of course!)

Emmet Otters Jug Band Christmas
Chico, kudos to you for remembering that one. I loved that show.

TrustedHer,
Yesssss! The original "We're No Angels" was awesome. Humphrey Bogart was hysterical. I personally think that was his best work.

Agree with everyone who said "A Christmas Story"

Holiday Inn
White Christmas

I have an obsession with Bing Crosby every Christmas and it drives my H crazy.

1) A Christmas Story. I can't wait for TBS's 24 hrs of A Christmas Story every year!!
2) It's A Wonderful Life
3) Miracle on 34th St. I love the original, black and white. I like the colorized version too. The remake...not so much, but it's not awful.
4) Frosty the Snowman/Rudolph The Rednosed Reindeer/The Year Without a Santa Claus--all of those animated/claymation movies.
5) Christmas Vacation
6) Jingle All the Way. It's funny.
7) White Christmas
8) Christmas with the Krunks
9) Home Alone. I love the elderly neighbor.


My favorite movie to point and laugh at during Christmas is Reindeer Games with Ben Affleck. LOL Leave the Jason Bourne type movies to Matt Damon.

I'm sure I'll edit as I think of more favorites.

I've always been partial to the FHE series of stop motion Christmas shows. We used to watch them every year as kind of a tradition, but it's fallen by the wayside the past two years. I'd say either Santa Claus is Coming to Town or the Little Drummer Boy are my favorites. There was one that I've had trouble finding that I remember as a kid called The Night the Animals Talked, but I haven't been able to find it. It's probably because this is what I remember watching as a kid.
