Get to know me!
Love that movie. I will definitely watch that one,
Scrooged is a good option, Xmas vacation, and whatever pops up on tv.
The DVD player will be filled with all Lord of the Rings extended editions. *drool* back to back! *cackle*
It might not be christmassy but it's a tradition already because of the theatre release dates.

DUDE!!!!! We played the hell out of our tape with "A Garfield Christmas", "Claymation Christmas Special", and "Wish for Wings that Work" (Bill n' Opus' one and only TV special). *LOVE* those classics!

"VeggieTales Christmas Spectacular" and "The Christmas Star" will be playing this year.

Along with most of the ones from earlier Frosty the Snowman, The Santa Clause and Home Alone. And Muppet Christmas Carol does indeed rule.

I just watched Elf with the kids, and thought it was funny enough to watch with the rest of the family on Christmas.

The Muppet Christmas Carol fucking rules! Gonzo as Charles Dickens with Ratso was the best! Michael Caine gives an inspired performance as Scrooge... INSPIRED!

This surpassed my other holiday favorite, SANTA CLAUS: THE MOVIE, the first time I saw it.

Also, I hate to admit it, but it just isn't christmas unless I watch JINGLE ALL THE WAY at least once during the month.

Now that I have a 2 year old niece who I don't see as much as I should, I have an excuse to watch the Christmas Sesame Streets with her. She's also a fan of Olive, the Other Reindeer, which isn't too bad. I'm hoping to get her into my well worn copy of a Pee Wee's Playhouse Christmas this year.

I've caught Merry Christmas, George Bailey (imdb.com) on PBS the past few years, and I've really enjoyed it. It's a "radio show", on stage, of "It's a Wonderful Life" with Bill Pullman and many other stars. Hopefully I can find it again this year.

No one is going to watch Peanut's Christmas. Wow, that is just so wrong. That is my all time favorite, next to Rudolph.

The five I must watch:

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
A Charlie Brown Christmas
Scrooged
A Christmas Story
A Muppet Family Christmas

It really bugs me that the version of A Muppet Family Christmas on video doesn't have the scene with Fozzie and the snowman doing stand-up. I guess it's a good thing we taped it off the television when it was on years and years ago. "Careful of the icy patch!" and "De gobbla-gobbla HUMONGO!" are practically catchphrases around my house.

My favorite moment was the two old grouches playing Jacob and "Robert" Marley. Nobody seemed to catch it...

Count me in on that...just picked it up on DVD (both color AND the black & white...4 life?) versions on the disc.

And I'll second the love for A Charlie Brown Christmas and Emmitt Otter's Jug-Band Christmas. I've gotta get that on DVD.

I agree with much of what's all ready posted. What I don't have on VHS or DVD, I wait for it to air. But two films that I MUST see every Holiday Season:

- Dutch... Starring Ed O'Neill and Ethan Embrey(Randall) This is a great Kick-Off of the season for me.

- The Good Son... With Macaulay Culkin and Elijah Wood. Not a Holiday film, but it's like a tradition for me to watch it. I think this was Culkin's best performance ever, which might not be saying much, but I like it. Much better than him in "The Nutcracker".
