    Whenever I think of my childhood—I think about the wonderful movies that graced the screen both the “silver screen” and the TV screen. Even as my own children were growing up; we spent many warm winters’ night watching the various movies and getting that “holiday feeling” that puts so many in a festive mood.

    With that in mind—I have put together ten of my favorite all time movies. This spans a time from my youth to adult. There are others that I really enjoyed however these are at the top of my list.
    1.    It’s A Wonderful Life
    2.    Miracle on 34th Street
    3.    A Christmas Carol (the older versions)
    4.    A Christmas Story
    5.    The Polar Express
    6.    A Charlie Brown Christmas
    7.    Home Alone
    8.    Home Alone 2: Lost in New York
    9.    Home Alone 3
    10.    How the Grinch Stole Christmas (With Boris Karloff)

    What are some of your favorites?

      No.4:  A Christmas Story is one of my favourite.

      I'd mention 'Trading Places' too, as an alternative foul-mouthed classic.

      Plus a great wee film called 'Snow Day' with Chevy Chase and Iggy Pop  ...... not a Xmas story but it's got all the fun ingedients

    1.  Have the DVD; love it; watch it several times a year once Christmas rolls around, even when it comes on television (though I hate the commercials.
    2.  Love it; but, the classic, not the new fandangled versions Hollywood tries to film.
    3.  Please refer to #2.
    4.  Husband's favorite movie; even seen A Christmas Story 2 (not nearly as good as the first).
    5.  Never seen it; don't even think my kids have.
    6.  Watch it as a kid; but, my kids now think it's too boring.
    7.  8.  and 9.  A few of my all time favorites.
    10.  Little Cindy Lou Who is my favorite character because she represents innocence and purity in all things.

      Yes...the Muppet Christmas Carol is a good one. I enjoy the George C. Scott "A Christmas Carol." I enjoy just about all of the old Christmas Carol movies ... even the one with Mr. Magoo :-)

      I'm going to see a live production as my family does every year. I can hardly wait!
