Christmas Movies, Anyone?

What's your favorite Christmas movie? I think mine still has to be It's a Wonderful Life. My sister and I were in college before we ever saw this movie (and that was the 80's so yes, we were a bit behind the times!) One year my dad taped it for us . . . thanks Dad! Oops . . . he taped a Steeler game over the last five minutes of the movie. My sister is a teary one to begin with; tears on top of tears over not knowing the ending to this tearful story - not a pretty sight!

I also love the classic Grinch cartoon and the Bill Murray version of A Christmas Carol (Scrooged, I believe is the name of it). My niece & nephews have watched my copy of Frosty the Snowman a zillion times; I swear I know that one by heart and the sound of Jimmy Durante's voice still warms my heart. Oh and I'm such a sucker for those sappy Christmas movies on TV every year around this time . . . on Hallmark and Pax/i. I can restrain myself all year from watching much TV until Christmas rolls around.

So what's your favorite Christmas movie?

I love Christmas movies! Yes, probably It's a Wonderful Life is my favorite,too, followed closely by A Christmas Carol (George C. Scott version), Miracle on 34th Street, Christmas in Connecticut, the first two Home Alone movies, Bachelor Mother, While You Were Sleeping, A Charlie Brown Christmas, A Christmas Story (with the 'language' removed)and on and on. :) I try to watch each one at least once starting right after Thanksgiving. Thanks for asking! :) God bless... Debra

YES! Scrooged was an excellent movie. I had a best friend who, when the rest of our group of friends were being stupid, would quote Bill Murray from that film "Now I'm going to have to kill you all!"
Hmmm... that's not very Christmasy is it :-) But it made me smile.
I also love the classic Grinch cartoon.

I would have to say "It's a Wonderful Life" is my favorite as well...followed by (in no particular order), A Christmas Story, the first Home Alone movie, Christmas Vacation, Scrooged, and Holiday Inn. By the way, I saw the Patrick Stewart version of "A Christmas Carol" last night and it was very good!
