    I would have to say the best christmas movie EVER is It's a Wonderful Life....I just watched it for the first time about 2 weeks ago and I bought the DVD right away....I was just so blown away by James Stewart's performance...i'm sorry I didnt see it sooner...such a classic. but my FAVORITE movie is still Home Alone....have to watch it every year. There are certain movies I have to watch every year.

    1. Home Alone
    2. Home Alone 2
    3. The Santa Clause (part 2 sucks)
    4. Die Hard
    5. Die Hard 2 (YES THEY ARE CHRISTMAS MOVIES!!!)
    6. Lethal Weapon (also a christmas movie!!)
    7. Mickey Mouse A Christmas Carol
    8. Its A Wonderful Life (just added)

    And if i happen to catch them
    Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
    A Christmas Story ( I get a lot of flack for this, but its just not one that I particularly need to see)
    Charlie Browns Christmas.

    Watching "Christmas Vacation" signals the start of the Holiday Season for me.

    I like to catch "A Christmas Story" and "It's A Wonderful Life" if I can.

    Saw Charlie Brown's Christmas last night. :)

    My favorite Christmas movies are (in no particular order)

    1) The Grinch Who Stole Christmas (not that Jim Carrey junk)
    2) A Christmas Story
    3) National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
    4) Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer (the stop motion animated one)
    5) Frosty the Snowman
    6) Home Alone 1 & 2
    7) Die Hard 1 & 2
    8) Lethal Weapon
    9) A Charlie Brown Christmas

    And that's all I can think of right now. And of course I love watching the Futurama & Simpsons Christmas shows too.

    Another vote here for "Scrooged!" with Bill Murray, that's a great Christmas movie.

    And "It's A Wonderful Life" also gets my vote.
