Count me among the worshippers of "A Christmas Story". Even though I own the DVD, I still have to have TNT's "24 Hours of A Christmas Story" running in the background while I'm wrapping presents on Christmas Eve.
I'm also quite fond of the George C. Scott version of Christmas Carol. Mr. Magoo's as well. I just don't own a copy of either at the moment.
In recent years Iíve been watching The Ref with Denis Leary regularly around Christmas time. I think itís one of the funnier Christmas time recent movies that have come out in the last 10 years.

Back in university (or 'college' as you Americans call it) we found an old BBC Christmas show called Bernard and the Genie, starring Alan Cumming and Lenny Henry. It's absolutely hilarious, and I always need to watch it at this time of year.
I have to admit, I hate just about every movie listed so far, I'm not a scrooge or anything, Christmas is good. But I don't like Christmas movies, the only one I can get on board with is Die Hard because the only movie I watch every year is Gremlins, which like Die Hard isn't really a Christmas movie, just takes place at Christmas.
It's one of those bizarre things that can only happen in an animated show. A full year passes (in this episode, no less) and no one gets any older. Francine's past as a stand-up comic was something out of left field. It definitely had its moments.
