What's Your Favorite Christmas Movie?

What movie do you absolutely have to watch every year during the holidays?

Every year as Christmas draws near, I start itching to watch my favorite holiday movie. Once it comes on, I just know in my heart that the holidays are here.

For me, it's a toss-up - my two absolute favorites are A Charlie Brown Christmas and A Christmas Story. Both, I have been watching faithfully every year, since I was a child. And, now that I have children of my own, I love how much my boys are starting to love Charlie Brown just as much as I do.

As for my husband, I think one of the reasons I first fell in love with him was when, during our very first Christmas together when we were dating, we realized we both loved A Christmas Story just as much as the other. Now, 10 years later, one of our favorite holiday pasttimes is curling up under a blanket on the couch every Christmas Eve and watching it together with a mug of hot apple cider, reciting the funniest lines right along with the characters.

You'll shoot your eye out, kid!

I triple dog dare you!

Mom, I can't put my arms down! Well, you can put them down when you get to school.

I love the original "We're No Angels. " The story, the dialogue, and of course, the cast are just priceless. And I love how the snake gets its halo in the end... I also love "The Christmas Story" and "Scrooged." And I really do not care for "It's a Wonderful Life."

You call yourself a 'movie purist'? If you don't like Christmas, just say so. I feel sorry for you if you consider a satire on Santa as a classic.

My favorite is A Christmas Carol--the one with Alistair Sim. Classic story of a negative person being transformed by Christmas.

My two favorites are Love Actually and A Christmas Carol, the one with George Scott.

I go for the classic, "It's a Wonderful Life."
