A Christmas Story and Christmas Vacation are my two favorites.

That said, weren't the first two "Die Hard" movies set at Christmas?

A Christmas Story. Some scenes are funny (I am old), but I love how Ralphie was dying to get the Red Ryder, and his dad said "Hey, that's funny. What's that thing behind the desk....." Classic, what a pop :)

A Christmas Story is far and away my favorite. The narrator is perfect.

A Christmas Story is far and away my favorite. The narrator is perfect.

The narrator is Jean Shepherd who wrote the book that the movie was based on. The book is In God We Trust: All Others Pay Cash. It is hilarious.

Oh, and Christmas Story is also my favorite Christmas movie.

Followed closely by:

It's A Wonderful Life
Christmas Vacation

The Santa Clause with Tim Allen.

Don't forget "Lethal Weapon" was a Christmas movie.

1. It's a Wonderful Life (Jimmy Stewart)
2. The Bishop's Wife (Cary Grant, Loretta Young)
3. The Man Who Came to Dinner (Monty Woolley, Bette Davis)
4. Miracle on 34th Street (Natalie Wood)
5. A Christmas Carol (George C. Scott)
6. A Christmas Story (Red Ryder BB Gun)
7. Home Alone Macauley Culkin)
8. The Sant Clause (Tim Allen)
9. Christmas Vacation (Chevy Chase)

The old movies are the best...Hollywood just doesn't know how to make these 'gems' anymore.

It's a tough call between National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation and A Christmas Story.

Miracle on 34th Street, It's a Wonderful Life and not exactly a full length movie, but a nice story and wondeful music - Trans-Siberian Orchestra Ghosts of Christmas Eve


11-26-2012, 16:47
In no particular order:

-Santa Clause with Dudley Moore
-The old claymation stuff
-A Christmas Story
-My new favorite is The Polar Express

Discalimer: I've never seen Miracle on 34th or It's a wondeful life, and my other confession is I really like all of them that I have seen... Christmas is my favorite time of year, not just the day but the season..

George C Scott's portrayal of Scrooge is right up there.

Spot on

It just ain't Christmas without 24 hours of a Christmas Story. That's one movie you love or you hate--don't know many on the fence.

My favorite is probably Elf. That movie just cracks me up.
