It seems like this sort of discussion has come up on the board before, but I don't know if there's a thread for it.
I was wondering what your favorite holiday movies are. Do you have movies that you try to watch every year at this time? I often like watching various versions of A Christmas Carol
every year (though I'm not sure I did last year, and haven't watched any this year... yet). My favorite versions are the musical version from the early '70s, and then 1951's Scrooge
, The Muppet Christmas Carol
, and then Scrooged
I did watch National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
earlier this week, which is one I catch sometimes during the Christmas season.
For something a little less traditional, I've been thinking that another Gremlins
viewing is in order.
I also really love the Christmas episode of The Andy Griffith Show
. It's really my favorite Christmas episode from any TV show. The episode is simply called "Christmas Story" and is from the first season.
