Christmas Movie Marathon.....

Whats your all time favorite Christmas Movie? My family will be having a Christmas Movie Marathon Christmas Eve. I will be heading a few days early to the video store. I need some ideas.

Mine is The Walton's Homecoming. DH surprised me 2 years ago and bought me a DVD for Christmas. Its a movie I would watch on Christmas Eve with my mother when she was living. Now the kids watch it with me because they know how much it means to me to continue watching it.

Well, it probably isn't in the True "spirit" of Christmas, but I thought Bad Santa was hilarious (quite off-color though...)

For a safer pick, I'd vote for Christmas Vacation, or A Christmas Story.

I'm still a sucker for the kiddy christmas shows. Rudolph and Santa Claus is coming to town are two of my favorites. I've watched both of them this year already.

sizz, the character's name was bob cratchitt, but there have been 22 productions of the movie, believe it or not. go to www.imdb.com to find out which one you were thinking of.
rudolph, santa is coming to town, the grinch who stole christmas, a christmas story, christmas vacation, miracle on thoity fort street (both of them were good), and it's a wonderful life are all faves in my house. but it all begins when we get to watch "march of the wooden soldiers/babes in toyland".

I still think that "Die Hard" should be classified as a Christmas movie.

EDIT: Aw cr*p, I didn't see ronjohn's lamp reference, now I have to change my sig!
