    I have never watched this movie

    We find it all again on Christmas Day

    :gingerbread: A Christmas Carol, any version!

    Personally, I would go with Scrooge(British, 1935). In the Philadelphia area they used to show John Wayne's The Three Godfathers(1948) on broadcast TV every year. It was a sorrowfull day when they ended that tradition. There was a puppet drama that included the story of the Nativity and Twas the Night before Christmas under the overall title of "The Spirit of Christmas" that was broadcast on TV(I think in Delaware)for over 40 years. Now you have to watch it on Youtube. In the New York area, Babes in Toyland(1934) and It's a Wonderful Life(1946) are seen on TV each year. The first Christmas show to be repeated anually was Amahl and the Night Visitors. Hasn't been on TV for a very long time but it's performed live in many cities throughout the U.S. still!

    My wife isn't big on Christmas movies, but I love the following:

    - Scrooged
    - Bad Santa
    - How the Grinch Stole Christmas
    - A Charlie Brown Christmas
    - A Christmas Carol (the new one with Jim Carrey was great)
    - most versions of A Christmas Carol
    - Christmas Vacation

    :santa: The Christmas Movie

    My family always watches Chevy Chase's A Christmas Vacation. Its very old, but very funny and its become our tradition. We only watch it once a season though, so when we do its a great time!

    LOL - I think I've already seen Christmas Vacation 3 times this year! I do love watching Christmas movies. Do you ever watch any of the REAL old ones - like White Christmas or It's a Wonderful Life?

    Me and the little man will normally watch The Santa Clause, The Santa Clause 2, and The Santa Clause 3 over each night one weekend (fri-sat-sun night respectively) We started doing it two years ago when I bought the box set have have been going since then.

    It's a fun little tradition.

    I actually watched White Christmas for the FIRST TIME last year on one of the Classic Stations .. Turner Classic Movies I think.

    Me and my Brother used to watch Garfield Christmas EVERY YEAR multiple times, like every weekend in December - but now we're grown and have lived far away from eachother it happens less.

    I watch a LOT of Christmas Movies every single year - Home Alone 1&2, Family Stone, Bridget Jones Diary (starts & ends at Xmas time, gimme a break!), Die Hard, Christmas with the Kranks, and lots mroe!
