    Do you have a movie you/your family watch every year as a tradition??

    We watch Christmas Vacation every year! We also really love The Family Stone! What about your family?

    We watch pretty much ALL of them as the season progresses. However, one tradition we have is that we always put up the tree on the day after Thanksgiving. Then, after it's up, we watch Polar Express while my wife makes her homemade hot chocolate. We always drink it when it gets to the "hot chocolate" scene in the movie.

    I start watching Christmas movies by October at the latest. Dont watch anything special on Christmas Eve as it's late by the time everyone leaves. When the kids were small, we would set out cookies and milk for Santa and I would always read "The Night Before Christmas" just before I'd send them to bed. After what seemed to take forever, they would fall asleep and we'd help Santa put the gifts under the tree (and eat the cookies)!

    :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

    My family watches A Christmas Story, Miracle on 34th Street, and It's a Wonderful Life every year, usually more than once.
