    So what movies do you always like to watch for the holidays? I usually start the season on Thanksgiving day with Planes, Trains and Automobiles. Sometimes I'll watch the newer version of Miracle on 34th Street on Thanksgiving or the day after.

    Other than that, I always watch Home Alone (of course) Jingle All the Way, The Santa Clause, Rudolf the Red nosed reinderr and some of the other Rankin Bass animated shows. What do you like to watch? :yay:

    Ummm... I have to watch Christmas Vacation with the family, it's become somewhat of a tradition. I usually catch 20 minutes here and there of A Christmas Story on TBS or w/e... We usually watch It's a Wonderful Life as well... The only time of year that I can stand to watch Citizen Kane is around Christmas so I try and fit that one in. Last year on Christmas Eve we went to see Night at the Museum, it's no classic, but it was a fun holiday movie.

    Other good ones that I watch from time to time:
    How the Grinch Stole Christmas
    Die Hard
    Home Alone
    Jingle All the Way (hey it's from my childhood... leave me alone)
    Elf
    Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
    The Santa Clause

    I usually just watch what's on network television.
    I just recently got a butt load of DVD's when my local Toys R Us closed. A lot of which are Christmas movies and animated, I think I got the Muppets. So no I have no tradition.

    I know a lot of people like them, but Christmas Vacation and A Christmas Story are two movies I never watch. I don't like them. I don't like any Christmasy movie that has bad stuff in it. :cmad: Christmas is supposed to be fun and good. No dysfunctional families for Christmas. :cmad:

    you gotta be ****ing kidding me. those two movies are probably the most believable of all the ****ing xmas movies based solely on the fact that THEY ARENT PERFECT (like all families if you ask me), and they are the only ones i watch. and what is bad about those two anyway... they teach people to keep together with your family, NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU ARE ASHAMED/EMBARRASSED OF THEM (real christmas spirit) and to be thankful for them.

    you seriously are delusional.

    I say it year after year, and year after year people hate me for it, but the fact is that A Christmas Story still sucks.

    I like Christmas movies that aren't about Christmas, like Gremlins and Home Alone

    I am deeply saddened that neither Die Hard nor Lethal Weapon is on this "must see" list.
