It's not Christmas at our house without National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. My husband and sister-in-law recites lines from it from Thanksgiving till Christmas! And I think of it everytime we're trying to wash the sap off our hands from putting up our tree.

I love when heat and snow miser end the stanza with "i'm too much!"
She was really young in this (I think around 10). It is about a little girl and her brother (a couple years older than her) who are upset that their parents are divorcing. They come up with a plot to try to get them back together. It is cute, funny, and heartwarming. All I Want for Christmas (1991)

We have to watch Rudolf, Charlie Brown and The Grinch every year. I also love Ralphie in the Christmas Story. White Christmas is good but Holiday Inn (where the song comes from) is better I think. My mother loves Miracle with Natalie Wood. It's always fun to see a version or two or Scrooge becoming a better person. Christmas Vacation with Chevy Chase is pretty funny too.

Charlie Brown Christmas is by far my favorite!

Love the Grinch
& we LOVE Christmas Vacation - I finally had to buy it since we watch it all throughout the year.
dh loves Christmas Story- and now he and the kids shoot the lines back and forth : "you'll shoot yer eye out!" "Drink more ovaltine" and "Fra-gee-lay!"

I saw that one last year for the first time in I don't know how long... Think it was on ABC Family or something. Whatever channel that did the Christmas special marathon.

(They even showed "Rudolph's Very Special New Year" )

No, this wasn't animated. I was very young, and I recall the commercials..showed an angry man ripping down what could have been a banner across a street or on a building. He threw it to the ground and stomped on it, I recall.

Family channel is having a marathon today of all the christmas shows. Lou and I got buzzed on whiskey last night and watched Rudolph...singing along and doing dialogue. It was hilarious.
