Favorite Christmas movie?

So last night I dug out all my Christmas movies to watch over the next month. I love Scrooged, the Santa Clause, Elf, and the Grinch.

But my most favorite is Christmas Vacation (Obviously!!) I can quote the whole movie from start to finish because I have seen it so many times!!!!!!!

What is your favorite?

Re: Favorite Christmas movie?

  • It's A Wonderful Life - Classic!

  • A Christmas Story!!!!  "You'll shoot your eye out!"
  • Christmas Vacation is a must see every year for my family.

     I also LOVE Love Actually. Makes me weepy and warm every time I watch it. 

  • A Christmas Story- hands down! I remember seeing it in the theater as a kid, which makes me feel incredibly old right now.

  • It's not totally a Christmas movie, but I watch Love Actually every year around this time. I freakin' love that movie!
  • The Grinch by far haha :) I love it. My christmas decorations look a lot like WooVille :) Bright green, red, funky designs I love it! You could say I'm a little obsessed.
  • White christmas, I have to watch that one every year!

  • Holiday movies are so much fun! 

    For most of my life it has been a tradition amongst the girls in my family to watch Holiday Inn and White Christmas every year for their old timey musical goodness.

    A new fave is Polar Express - I have special memories associated with this movie.

    I think you and I could probably re-inact the entire movie!

    "Well I'm gonna park the cars, check the luggage, and well, I'll be outside for the season." 

     I'm totally watching this tonight. Today's the first day we have snow, so it's seems right :) 

  • My absolutely favorite ever since before it was a movie is Polar Express. As soon as it got cold I made my parents read that as my bedtime story when I was younger and now my poor husband has to watch it at least 3x a week (I promised him this year I would wait until after Thanksgiving to start).

    Side note: I've NEVER seen Christmas Story!! We don't turn the tv on at all on Christmas and I've just never sat down to watch it.

  • I didn't know there were any other x-mas movies besides A Christmas Story... ;-)   l probably watch it about a million times between Thanksgiving and x-mas.

  • I have so many!  Christmas Vacation, Elf, and Home Alone 2 are just a couple. 

    My all time favorite is A Walt Disney Christmas.  It is a couple of old school cartoons from Disney-I have watched it every year since I can remember!  I have to find it on DVD, because I only have it on VHS.

  • We literally have EVERY Christmas movie known to man!  My husband and I have a rule though:  NO Christmas anything until after Thanksgiving!

    Our obvious favorite is Christmas Vacation.  You ladies who know all the lines ... aahh, you may have some competition.  My husband and I are pretty good ourselves.

    We also like Home Alone (1 & 2), Elf, A Christmas Story, Polar Express, and Santa Clause.

    Hubby and I also have a tradition where we only watch Miracle On 34th Street (original black and white), A Christmas Carol (black and white with Alistair Sims), and It's A Wonderful Life on Christmas Eve. 

    But you can't forget classics like Rudolph, the Red Nosed Reindeer, Charlie Brown's Christmas, etc.

    Some other cute new ones are The Family Stone, Four Christmases, Fred Claus, etc.

    "Hallelujah! Holy Sh*t! Where's the Tylenol!?"

    "when Santa squeezes his fat white a$$ down that chimney tonight, he's gonna find the jolliest bunch of a$$holes this side of the nuthouse"

    Oh yeah - I forgot to mention Home Alone.

    My husband and I were planning a trip to New York City this Christmas (finally) after talking about it for so many years. Then I got pregnant........soooo I have to watch Home Alone New York!!!!

  • Hands down it's A Christmas Story.  When I was a kid, the first year they ever played it on tv our Thanksgiving dinner was postponed for a couple hours so we could finish watching it.  It's been tradition to watch it every year since, dh had never seen it and doesn't find it as entertaining as I do, so I usually end up watching it alone, but it will definitely be a tradition I share with LO when he's here!
  • Love Actually

    The Holiday

    Miracle on 34th Street, Jingle all the Way, Home Alones, National Lampoon's

    I love them all :)

  • Christmas Vacation, The Grinch, and A Christmas Story.  We have to watch A Christmas Story on Christmas Eve, when TBS plays it for 24 hours!

    I also love the old cartoons from when I was a kid, Rudolph, Merry Christmas Charlie Brown, the original Grinch, and Frosty the Snowman.

  • I love A Christmas Story. I have a leg lamp that will be going in the window!  It was the office window last year, now it's the nursery. That should be fun. lol.

    Also I've always liked the original Miracle on 34th Street. A favorite as a kid was the Muppet Christmas Carol with Michael Caine.

    I also enjoy Elf for a new one. :)

  • A Christmas Story.  Can't beat it.  DH and I watch the 24 hour run of it on TNT every year.  Not continuously, but we watch the first time all the way through then just turn it on in the background while cooking or whatever.  This will definitely LO's first holiday tradition. 
    I give up trying to get a ticker.  I have a DD that is 2.5 years old and is awesome.  Maybe I'll add a quote to distinguish myself.  Hmmm.  How about...

    "It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" - A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh
  • The Muppet's Christmas Carol.  It's a tradition on my side of the family to go to the Christmas Eve service at church and then come home and watch this movie with hot chocolate and popcorn!!

  • Hands down- Polar Express. Last week I put on the song that Josh Groban sings for the movie on youtube and pretty much broke down. Every year my DH and I watch it on Christmas Eve while drinking hot chocolate [the hot chocolate scene is one of my favs] and making a gingerbread house. A little tradition we will never give up. We'll just add making cookies and milk for Santa when LO starts celebrating with us :)
