    What Christmas movies are your favorite? For me, "A Christmas Story" is at the top of the list. I can watch that movie time after time, and never get tired of it. "Christmas Vacation" with Chevy Chase is another good movie.

    "It's a Wonderful Life" Gotta be the best Christmas movie ever.

    It's a Wonderful Life is a good one.

    I can't watch A Christmas Story anymore. The 24 hours of A Christmas Story every year wore that movie out. It is now obnoxious as hell.

    Home Alone 1 and 2 are both good Christmas movies.

    A more recent favorite for me is The Family Stone. Funny, with good drama mixed in.

    Also, I'm still a sucker for The Muppet Christmas Carol.

    It's a Wonderful Life
    Christmas Vacation
    Elf
    Rudolph
    The Grinch (the cartoon)
    Charlie Brown Christmas

    The last three all remind me of being a kid and brings back that Christmas feeling.

    The rule in our house is no Christmas music or movies until it's December. I eased that last year to 'until the day after Thanksgiving'. It's just so that when the kids are big they will associate this music and these movies specifically with Christmas.

    I love "It's A Wonderful Life" now that it's not on 24/7. I still can watch "A Christmas Story", I don't have to listen to it 24/7 now, the kids are past that. I love all the old Bing Crosby movies.

    I'm going to be...a DEN-TIST!

    That's still a classic line to me.
