Well?

1. Christmas Story
2. Home Alone 1 and 2
3. The Grinch (maybe), that is the new one, and if I can watch the old one. I like the love story of the new one, with the woman from The Good Wife with the funny nose.
4. Elf
5. Whatever else strikes my fancy.

I've seen Home Alone 1 and 3 this season, but not 2. Home Alone 3 is somewhat topical now as it features a North Korean attempt to hijack American technology. Also saw Elf.

Also seen several of the DreamWorks specials: Shrek the Halls, the How To Train Your Dragon one, the Madagascar one (with lemurs that celebrate "Julianuary"), the one with Kung Fu Panda in it, etc.

And Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol. And The Santa Clause.

A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965)

Technically too short to be considered a movie, but it's a Christmas tradition for me.

Just watched the original Annie (c. 1982). Not Christmas per se, but Netflix suggested it as such. Tears, tears, tears. Any other guys get tears in such movies? Come on, admit it. Supposedly it gets you brownie points with the ladies, though I feel that's white knighting. For me that is just how it is. I sincerely get easy tears in these sorts of movies.

Help for the Holidays above all else since I really admire Summer Glau ever since she was doing sci-fi shows. She has a sense of childlike innocence that reminds me of my sister and calms my nerves.

Definitely Scrooge, The Muppet Christmas Carol and The Nightmare Before Christmas (the last one plays regularly throughout the time between Halloween and Christmas). As long as I get my fix of those three, I don't care much what else is on.

For this year in particular, we'll be watching the TV premiere of Frozen, which the boy has been waiting forever for. Grin

My wife and I went to see It's a Wonderful Life on the big screen (part of a Classics Series) on Monday evening. Never enjoyed it more.

I'm happy to see that the British appreciate the Muppets. My family hates them except for me.

Despising the Muppets is anathema.

Yes! Classic. The tiny tree! The reading from Luke! It's not Christmas without that show.  angel
