We love watching Christmas movies at our house! Some of our favs are: Home Alone, White Christmas, Scrooged, Grinch (both versions), Gremlins (haha), Elf, Rudolph in Claymation, and Christmas Vacation. Those are the ones we watch most frequently but I'm sure I could add more to the list if I sat and thought about it. :)

I watch pretty much any and all Christmas movies. I also watch all the tv shows. My kids, esp. dd, also like to watch all of these with me. I've trained them well!

ITA on the 2 Home Alone movies - I love those.

We get a Disney Christmas Cavalcade here on the morning of the 25th and that's been a tradition since forever, actually since´the 70'ties and we only had 1 channel to choose from.

We also have a daily calendar programme on at least 3 channels - one public channel for the younger kids/tweens, a continued story where the show of the day corresponds to a picture inside a wall calendar with little windows to open each day 1-24. One other channel does the same but for tweens/teens. The third is later at night and for teens/adults with more satire, irony, quirky humor :)

I love Christmas movies!

I usually start w/ Miracle on 34th St, but I'll be watching Elf, The Santa Clause, Holiday Inn, and some cheesey Hallmark Channel ones in the next few weeks I'm sure!

I donated my freezer stash of EBM to another mom through

I really like A Christmas Story. I could watch that one in December, July and maybe

one other randomly chosen month every year.
