All time favorites are:

White Christmas

Holiday Inn

Miracle on 34th St

 

I love the Santa Clause movies (even the last one, lol).

 

And one that is really not a Christmas movie, but it has Santa and Jack Frost in it so I'll count it, The Rise of the Guardians.  I love that movie!

 

I did really enjoy The Christmas Chronicles last year. Probably too new for me to consider it a favorite yet :).

 

I watch all the Hallmark Christmas movies, but really the stereotypes are right. They ARE all basically the same. So while I love them, I would not count any of them in my favorites either.

 

I'm looking forward to watching Noelle on Disney+, whenever I get time in the next couple weeks.  And, I'll try Klaus on Netflix.

Oh gosh. I might actually have a shorter list than most because I don't watch much TV these days, but...

 

1) It's A Wonderful Life

2) Home Alone 1&2

3) Christmas Vacation

4) Santa Clause 

 

and while not full length movies, I love A Charlie Brown Christmas and the animated The Grinch Who Stole Christmas cartoon from back in the day. 


For those curious: Kitty in my pic is current furbaby, Mew, curled up in a box far too small for her. Ha! "If I fits, I sleeps!"

 

NASCAR fan (particularly JGR pit crews - many friends there), diehard UM Wolverine fan, animal lover, car girl, cookie baker, singer, bargain hunter. Yep. That about covers it. lol :cool:

It’s hard to choose, but if I had to rank them:

The Muppets Christmas Carol
White Christmas
How the Grinch Stole Christmas (the original animated tv version)
Arthur Christmas
Miracle on 34th Street (the original version)

My husband’s favorites, which I also enjoy are:
National Lampoons Christmas Vacation
Die Hard 1 and 2
The Ref

Other beloved classics that I like to catch but are less essential are:
Scrooged
Home Alone
The Santa Clause
Rise of the guardians

Now here is the truly shocking part, I have never seen, besides just bits and pieces:
Holiday Inn
It’s a Wonderful Life
Every year I keep saying I will give them a try, but I never seem to have enough time, especially when you take into account all the Hallmark movies I enj.

I like It's a Wonderful Life, but it's not a must watch.  I LOVE Holiday Inn.  But I'm totally in to Bing and Fred, and singing and dancing. Throw in some Danny Kaye and Gene Kelly, and I always say they were just a whole different kind of sexy :).

 

Are they remaking The Ref?  Or have they made a movie that seems just like it?  I keep seeing bits of commercials but haven't caught the whole thing.

I finally caught the whole commercial. It's called The Moody's Christmas.  It just looked similar to me, probably because it has Denis Leary yelling at a couple sitting on a couch. LOL

It's not a movie and in fact doesn't even run 30 minutes, but the Richard Williams-directed, Chuck Jones-produced animated version of "A Christmas Carol" is absolutely extraordinary and even won an Academy Award.  It can be viewed on youtube.

I just watched Netflix’s new animated movie Klaus and thought it was very cute. I think this one could become a kids favorite.
