Mine is White Christmas with Bing Crosby. What is yours? I could not list them all so I gave a other category and let you have multiple choices also.

How could Elf not be on there or the top grossing Christmas film of all time Home Alone? Like Scrooged a lot though.

Cuz there are to many to list, that is why I put a other category on the poll.

I voted other, but I was Thinking A Charlie Brown Christmas, but that isn't really a movie is it?
I just love the music.

On the serious side, I go for Bings 'Holiday Inn' over 'White Christmas'. On the funny side, my choice would be 'Home for the Holiday' .... gotta love the dysfunctional family holidays!!

What about Bad Santa? Is there nothing better than a horney alcoholic Santa and a black midget elf?

I like the Grinch who Stole Christmas (the Real version, not the Jim cary one...) for no other reason than listeneing to Tony the Tiger sing "You're a mean one Mr. Grinch!"

I went for "It's A Wonderful Life". The original Bert and Ernie!

No "Miracle on 34th Street" ?

It's a Wonderful Life. It's head & shoulders above most other Christmas movies IMHO. I also voted for "How the Grinch Stole Christmas". I like both versions. Of "Other", I think Scrooged is ok. I've never been a big fan of miricle on 34th street, even though I normally like old movies.

I picked It's A Wonderful Life and nothing else. It really pulls on my heart strings.

I also like A Christmas Story (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0085334/) for different reasons. Essentially, this was my childhood.

White Christmas and Christmas Vacation are family traditions at our house, along with Robert Earl Keene's "Merry Christmas from the Family".

It's a Wonderful Life was our annual favorite until our son became old enough to cast his vote. Now, A Christmas Story is our annual ongoing movie while we decorate and wrap gifts.

Freddy Vs. Jason is our favorite this year. We always save up the movies we don't have time to watch during Halloween, and watch them over the Xmas holidays. Let's face it, there's no good movie watching time on thanksgiving because we're too busy eating, and I can't take a gory flick on an over-full tummy. We also have Texas Chainsaw Masacre II in the lineup this year. This is going to be an awesome holiday season. Hey, it's all about the kids right? Crap, that reminds me....gotta brake out the Chuckey movies!

Who couldn't love ZuZu's petals? Melts my heart everytime. I also love "Meet me in St Louis" Judy Garland sings "Have yourself a merry little Christmas". Good stuff!

As a child they always had that movie, plus Rudolph, Frosty and Santa Clause is coming to town on back to back. That was the night we decorated the tree and the rest of the house, drank homemade egg nog, ate fudge and divinity. I try to do that now. Buy with life the way it is now days it is hard to do that.

+1 for Christmas Vacation. It does not matter how many times I see that movie I still laugh my ass off.

The kids? What are you serious? I can barely afford my own therapist. They can have a therapist when they're old enough to get a job and pay for it.

I love the part where the cat chews on the cord for the lights to the tree. Next thing ya see is a burnt spot on the floor shaped like a cat.

Shows that depict sickening images like that should be banned. Do you have any idea what a good string of Christmas lights cost? :)

A Christmas Story, I was a child in the late forties and early fifties and it brings back great memories of the way things were.
