Favorite Christmas/Holiday movies?
We're having a Christmas Movie Marathon today through to Christmas Day - what are your favorites?
So far we've watched:
A Christmas Story
The Grinch That Stole Christmas (animation)
Charlie Brown Christmas & It's Christmas Time Again, Charlie Brown
Next up is going to be, I think, Home Alone 2.

Ooh, what a fun thread, Toni.
Hmmm. I love the old Cary Grant movie The Bishop's Wife, with David Niven and Loretta Young.
That movie they made out of the book Polar Express is very interesting and well made, though far more elaborate than the brief story from the original book.
If I can ever find filmed productions of The Nutcracker, I'm happy.
And I am rather partial to the first Santa Clause. My favorite quote: "We're your worst nightmare: elves with attitude."
Special mention goes to The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, the recent Disney/Walden one. I am a huge Narnia fan and always will be.
I wasn't as fond of Polar Express as I thought I would be. The technology was cool, though.
Home Alone 2 is playing now...
Next I think will be A Christmas Carol - the one Jim Carrey did with Disney a few years back...
After that hopefully Christmas Vacation (my fav Cmas movie).
On the Ice
For more "recent" ones....
I loved Elf and Four Christmases was also quite enjoyable for its different take on Christmas. I've never watched New Year's Eve but I did enjoy its Valentine's Day counterpoints on a pure entertainment level (with no consideration to plot) and so I think I would love New Year's Eve as well if not just to watch the cast interact with each other.
I also tend to like Christmas episodes of my favourite TV shows...if that counts
Christmas Vacation is playing - last movie of the night.
Tomorrow is church, I have an "office" Christmas party, parents have a Christmas Eve Eve service... so the marathon's on hold until Monday lol
