So, as everyone knows 'Tis the Season, and with Christmas comes Christmas movies.

In an effort to get more in the christmas spirit I wanted to share some of my favorite christmas movies with y'all and to hear some of your favorites in turn. I always liked the comedic christmas movies more than the heartwarming ones, but please, share any all all of your favorite holiday movies


Now, my top 3 (I have way more than 3, but these top the list):

1. The Nightmare Before Christmas

2. Christmas Vacation

3. Scrooged

Please, share your favorites!!

Nightmare before Christmas for sure and probably elf.
I have this weird thing about elf because i like it but my brother knows it word for word so whenever he comes over when we watch it he becomes annoying lol

My favorite is nightmare before Christmas. However funny story is the house that the Christmas Story was filmed ini actually lived next door to. It was not during filming but a couple years later.

A Christmas Story
It's a wonderful life.
A Charlie Brown Christmas

The Ref

This time of the year, I'll fill up the DVR with Christmas movies, Christmas shows, and Christmas specials, mainly to annoy the kids over the Christmas Break. But the 3 classics, I'll actually pay attention to and try to watch once. The Ref, I'll specifically set aside time to watch it at least once during the season.

I think I might be the only person on earth who doesn't really like a nightmare before christmas.

It's not that I hated it or despised it, but yeah, I didn't really like it. It was worth me watching it once, but it will be no great loss if I never see it again.

I like the old black and white classics. I used to watch them with my mother, when I was young, and still like them.

"It's a Wonderful Life" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0038650/?ref_=nv_sr_1
There is also a "reworking" with a female lead, called "It Happened One Christmas" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0076213/

"Miracle on 34th Street" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0039628/?ref_=nv_sr_2

"Scrooge" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0026972/?ref_=nv_sr_4

"A Christmas Carol" (1938 and 1951 versions) (1938) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0029992/?ref_=nv_sr_4 (1951) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0044008/?ref_=nv_sr_2


I also like the old cartoon and stop-motion Christmas specials.

"Frosty the Snowman" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0064349/?ref_=nv_sr_1

"Santa Claus is Comin' to Town" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0066327/?ref_=nv_sr_1

"A Year Without a Santa Claus" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0072424/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

"Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0058536/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1


The most "modern" Christmas movies I like are "A Christmas Story" and "The Nightmare Before Christmas". There is also "A Christmas Story 2", but it was terrible. I think I only like "The Nightmare before Christmas" because of the art style and animation. Other than that, it is "meh".



Fun fact about "It's a Wonderful Life": The FBI thought it was communist propaganda! http://www.wisebread.com/fbi-considered-its-a-wonderful-life-communist-propaganda#memo1

All the classics were cool, however revisiting them the last few years hasn't done in for me...I can always watch every version of "A Christmas Carol" save for "Scrougged" what a disapointment!
This year the kids and I are watching Pulp Fiction followed by Apocalypse Now, Schindler's List and Natural Born Killers....starting some new traditions.
