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
 
Christmas Vacation

only one I need to watch, always make me laugh
 
I always need to watch those old Rankin Bass claymation movies (Rudolph, Frosty, Santa Claus is coming to town).
 
Die hard
Home Alone
Scrooged
Nightmare before Christmas (Covers both holidays :p)
 
Nightmare Before Christmas
Home Alone.
How the Grinch Stole Christmas. (Both Versions)
Jingle all the Way.
A Christmas Carol.
Christmas Vacation.
A Christmas Story.
And many more. =]]
 
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.
 
Scrooged
mummpets christmas carol
Jackfrost
elf

BAH HUM BUG!

if i can avoid all christmas movies its been a good holiday. but i normally put Bad Santa on to chase the relatives out of the house...
 
National Lampoons Christmas Vacation
A Christmas Story
Home Alone 1&2
A nightmare Before Christmas

And although it sounds very un christmas like, i always like to watch die hard 1 and 2 cause there set around christmas time :oldrazz: :woot:
 
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:
 
I completely forgot Die Hard having any Christmas in it.

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 watch Die Hard 1 during the Christmas season.
