Christmas Vacation

Did anyone realize that Johnny Galecki of "Roseanne" and "The Big Bang Theory" played Chevy Chase's son, Rusty Griswold?

A Christmas Story, with Home Alone a close second.

A Christmas Story and The Nightmare before Christmas. I make sure to watch them every year on Christmas day or eve.

I LOVE the old Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer special. I have to watch it on Christmas every year. Not complete without it.

@tarasadies: Love Home Alone. I try to make a point of watching it every year between Thanksgiving and Christmas!

My wife and I always wrap presents and watch Love Actually. She makes fun of me, but it's a great movie to put me in the spirit. Plus you can't go wrong with a cast of Colin Firth, Liam Neeson, Emma Thompson, Bill Nighy, Keira Knightley, and Claudia Schiffer, among others.

How the Grinch stole Christmas....the original with the voice of Boris Karloff.

My TV hasn't left TBS for the past 3 or 4 Christmases. The Christmas Story over and over and over again until my eye balls bleed out from my skull.

White Christmas. There is honestly no other Christmas movie that I absolutely HAVE to watch during the holiday season. There's just something about Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, and Rosemary Clooney singing and dancing together that put me in the holiday spirit.

I know I'm probably going to be alone on this, but there's a dramatization of A Child's Christmas in Wales that in my mind is far and away the best Christmas movie. I could listen to Denholm Elliot ramble on as Dillon Thomas all day.

Christmas Story by far. I had never seen the movie until about 2000/2001. I found myself selling electronics in a big box store and they played the move non-stop during the holidays. Somehow, I can still watch it over and over...

"Over the years I got to be quite a connoisseur of soap. My personal preference was for Lux, but I found Palmolive had a nice, piquant after-dinner flavor - heady, but with just a touch of mellow smoothness. Life Buoy, on the other hand.."

Santa Claus is Comin' to Town. All of those old Rankin-Bass stop-motion movies are spectacular, but this one was my favorite.

Rudolph is easily #1 with A Christmas Story right behind. After that, in no particular order: Scrooged, Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (MST3K version), Christmas Vacation, and The Muppet Christmas Carol. As you can tell, my movie taste hasn't changed much since my childhood.

Gosh, so many! Every year it's fair game in my house to start with the xmas movies as of Thanksgiving night. Among my faves: Christmas Story, Christmas Vacation, A Child's Christmas in Wales, Bishop's Wife, It's a Wonderful Life, The Snowman, all the Rankin-Bass oldies, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Elf, Prancer, Poirot's Christmas, Miracle on 34th Street...ok, I'll stop.

I'd say A Christmas Story is my favorite. But, I also watch Christmas Vacation and Funny Farm (not really a "Christmas movie", but.. still...)

Anyone remember the TV Special "Claymation Christmas" from the early 90's? I loved that :)

vote-for2vote-against

A Christmas Story. I watch it 3-4 times on xmas day. A close second would be Jingle All the Way starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, I have probably watched it 100 times since I was a kid.

The Muppet Christmas Carol

Christmas Vacation by far. Saw it for the first time in the theater as a kid and I've seen it every year since. Its a holiday tradition.

Love Actually. My wife and I watch it every Christmas as a tradition. Great film, and Bill Nighy is bloody brilliant as the over the hill rocker Billy Mack.

@dmaz: Yes! I couldn't remember the name of it! Love the bells! And "Here we come a waddling..." :)

@dmaz: I think you're thinking of Will Vinton's Claymation Christmas, which is also my favorite.

vote-for6vote-against

Nothing like watching Die Hard to get me into the Christmas mood. What?! The movie was set during the holidays and therefore counts as a Christmas movie.

@dmaz: Actually it was '87, but now I'm showing my age so I'll go with early 90s as well just to feel younger.

It's become a tradition at my house to play Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas while we unwrap gifts.

Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol is a good one as well. Ignore the sub-par 60s animation and just listen to the voice acting. It's amazing.

Nutcracker! I like to watch the Battle of the Nutcrackers on Ovation TV. Last year the Bolshoi version was my favorite.

Here is a link to the different versions that will battle it off and viewers can vote on their fave version:
