The 'Christmas books' thread in the Book Corner got me thinking of our family's favorite Christmas movies.

We have the same 8 or 10 that we return joyfully to every year.

What are some of the movies you enjoy at Christmas time?

My wife and I *love* this movie, and it's a Christmas Eve tradition for us and our girls. Our girls roll their eyes because Carrie and I sob loudly through most of it. :)

It's a Wonderful Life

It's a Wonderful Life is not just my favorite Christmas movie, but is on my Top Ten all-time favorite movies list. I can't say enough good things about it. (So I won't even try.)

Fair Warning: Anybody who spews out A Christmas Story as their favorite gets immediately put on my Ignore list. :p

It's generic (sorry!) but my favorite is still Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.  I also love Frosty the Snowman (original).

I like "It's a Wonderful Life" and Irving Berlin's "White Christmas" and "Holiday Inn", but my favorite is "Christmas Vacation".

The only Christmas movie I will NEVER, EVER watch is that annoying "A Christmas Story"

Bah Humbug on all of you Christmas Story haters. I love Christmas Vacation, too.

I remember my parents taking me to Radio City Music Hall one Christmas season...I was little, maybe six or seven. There was a stage show with the Rockettes and some Christmas-themed movie that I've long forgotten. Whatever movie it was would be my favorite simply because of the magic of NYC and Radio City at Christmas.

Hands down "It's a Wonderful Life"!  I watch it every single year while I'm wrapping Christmas presents.  I'll be in Disneyland this year for Christmas so I'll have to take it and my portable DVD player with me.

I also like some of the silly movies, Christmas Vacation, Bad Santa, Scrooged, etc...

I don't have a favorite...I have seen them so much that I got sick of them by the age of 12-13 ish. (mom owned a day care when I was growing up.)

My favorite that I watch every year is Love Actually. Not for everyone but I just love it!
This movie was much, much better than I anticipated. I shed many masculine tears.

The one we must watch every year is Chevy Chase in Christmas Vacation. When Randy Quaid comes out in a white v-neck sweater with a black dickey...hilarious!

I like the old Katherine Hepburn/Spencer Tracy movie, Desk Set. It's not actually a Christmas movie but it always seems to get shown this time of the year anyway. It must be that great office Christmas party scene in the movie that prompts the programing gurus to play it every December.

I'm treading dangerous ground here but I have to put a vote in for my least favorite Christmas movie of all time and that would be...A Wonderful Life.

White Christmas, Christmas Vacation (which we watch year round), It's A Wonderful Life, A Christmas Carol (numerous versions) and of course, the classics shown on network TV which we own on DVD :)))
