    Default What's Your Favorite Holiday Movie?

    It seems like the tv is flooded with new and old holiday movies. Right now, Babes in Toyland, It's a Wonderful Life, Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer and countless other movies are playing, which made me think about my favorite holiday movies over time. What are your favorite holiday movies? Mine are:

    1. It's A Wonderful Life
    2. A Christmas Carol (the Mickey Mouse version)
    3. Elf
    4. A Christmas Story
    5. March of the Wooden Soldiers
    6. The Holiday
    7. Miracle on 34th Street
    8. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
    9. The Nightmare Before Christmas
    10. Edward Scissorhands

    Here's another great oldie for you:
    Holiday Inn, with Bing Crosby and Bob Hope. It's the one with the song, White Christmas.
    How about the Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Christmas special on TV? I so loved that one as a child, and my kids loved it, too.

    <3 the Polar Express! It was one of my favorite children's books to read and the way the made the movie did it such honor. Another favorite children's Christmas book is The Miracle of Jonathan Toomey.

    I like "A Christmas Carol" with Mr. Scrooge, Tiny Tim and the rest of the characters. Also, I like "The Grinch Who Stole Christmas".

    I love all versions of "A Christmas Carol"..from Mr. Magoo to Patrick Stewart! I set my TiVo to tape every version of the movie and I watch them all month (lol).
    Next, I'd have to say my favorite is "A Christmas Story" with Ralphie and his red rider BB gun "You'll Shoot Your Eyes Out!!"

    Peace and Blessings
    Namaste

    Miracle on 34th Street warms my soul and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer takes me down memory lane. Oh, the anticipation of Santa and all his wonderful treasures........I miss those days!

    I didn't know Mr. Magoo did a Christmas Carol. I'll have to look for that.

    They've been showing some good movies on TCM lately. Some I had never seen and some of my favorites. The Bishop's Wife with Cary Grant, Christmas in Connecticut, Tenth Avenue Angel, and Remember the Night. I love all the Christmas Carols but my favorite is with Patrick Stewart...not just because I'm a trekkie but because he was so darn good in it! When he starts to laugh out of relief and nearly kills himself from laughing...brilliantly done. Lol.

    But my all time favorite Christmas special to watch, which is also my family's, is Life with Louie, A Christmas Surprise for Mrs. Stillman. It's so cute and hilarious!
