Sorry Damp!

And yes, technically, "Die Hard" should be considered a Christmas Movie!

No prob, ronjohn! This sig fits the board better anyway!

EDIT: Not very Christmas-like but I just had to add this: "Now I have a machine gun. Ho ho ho."

I am also a huge fan of , as probably a few of you guys already got a drift... Even though by now I memorised almost the entire film I still get such a kick out of it every time!! I can never let a holiday season go by without watching this at least once, Ralphie is one of the cutest kids I've ever seen!!

I also adore "A Wish for Wings that Work", the animated film featuring Opus from Bloom County... such a cute story!!

Love Actually also should be considered a Christmas movie. Might be the new best.

White Christmas with Bing, Danny, Rosemary, and Vera is the best.
Christmas Story with Ralphie and his family is the second best.
The Muppets Christmas Carol, with Michael Caine as Scrooge, is the third best.
Then and only then do I get to It's a Gosh-Darn Wunnerful Life. Watched it too many times in a row too many years in a row for it to still be number one.

Hands down, my all time favorite is The Muppet Christmas Carol. Sir Michael Caine made an excellent Scrooge, IMHO. Love Gonzo as Dickens, as well as all of the other characters.

Good call, Shannon! "Scrooged" is a great movie, I'd forgotten about that one! Also, who can forget "Christmas Vacation!"

Eddie: You surprised to see us, Clark?
Clark: Oh, Eddie... If I woke up tomorrow with my head sewn to the carpet, I wouldn't be more surprised than I am now.
