    "Charlie Brown Christmas" while we are decorating the tree; "White Christmas" and "A Christmas Carol" (the one with Alistair Sim)are part of my tradition every year.  Bonus movies that I love are the classics, "It's a Wonderful Life," "Holiday Inn" and "Miracle on 34th Street" (the one with little Natalie Wood).

        cosette, all of those for me, too.  Except maybe the Grinch.  I'll add Scrooged with Bill Murray and Holiday Inn.

      home alone comes to my mind whenever i think about Christmas. It's a nostalgic movie. I loved the concept of stay alone at home and managing things out smile

    A Christmas Story! In the U.S., there's one channel that does a 24-hour marathon of it. I always watch it at least three times during that period.

    I have too many!

    The givens are Its A Wonderful Life, Miracle on 34th Street (old & new), The Christmas Carol.  My daughter and I are addicted to the 25 days of Christmas movies on either Hallmark or one of those fluffy channels smile  I love the cartoons, Rudolph, Frosty, Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, etc.

    "It's a Wonderful Life," as I believe in the Light and abundance of living with and within gratitude. Jimmy Stewart's character experiences some hard lessons about the absence of gratitude-- and from Potter's character as well.
    Joy, giving and love rule our days!

    A movie that I have seen many times that is about a family who are left alone when there father goes to the war, which has a Christmas theme in it is "Little Women".
    This story is about a mother and her daughters who have to fight really hard just to survive after their father has to leave them to go and fight in the war. Their mother does sewing and odd jobs for other families to bring in a few extra pennies, so that she can put food on the table for her and her daughters.They have to be very frugal with their spending and with Christmas coming just around the corner, the daughters are saving every penny they can, so each of them can give each other a present at Christmas. However, even though they are struggling just to survive themselves, regardless of this, they are always thinking of those who are even less fortunate than themselves. I think that this shows the true spirit of Christmas, because when the mother and her daughters learn of a family who are in a very bad situation, the first thing they think about is how they can help them have a better Christmas than the one that they are facing. To do this, they gather all their christmas dinner and even the presents which they have for each other. In some cases these presents were gifts that the girls had made themselves, and without any thoughts of what they are missing out on,they happily take these to the family. As they watch the faces of the children change from one of sadness to joy and excitement, this is the best christmas present that they could ever have. What they have done for this family, shows the tue meaning of christmas spirit to me, the joy of giving to those less fortunate than ourselves and this is why I love this movie so much.  BB

    It's A Wonderful Life...is a "must see" for me for Christmas.

    Bredavies says: "A Christmas Carol"...and I am reminded of the new movie w/ Jim Carrey that just came out about that story...and how well the story has transcended over the years.

    I think "It's a wonderful live." It beats them all. It makes me believe into us, people, into our future. It's not just a fairy tale. People like that live among us and are our true unseen heroes. An amazing movie, well made, classy and classic.

    For me personally I always loved Rudolph, and I love old movies so Holiday Inn and White Christmas are a must.  But one a lot of people are not aware of is The Story of Santa Claus.  It's a really cool 2 hour animated special about Santa.  I found it recently and have grown to love it.

    I love lots of films at Christmas,  Feel good movies which make me want to cry, funny isn't it that 'feel good' movies make you cry.  It's a wonderful life, Miracle on 34th Street, Love Actually and perhaps oddly, Shrek.

    "A Christmas Story" -- we love watching it with my mom. She gives the color commentary--about the kitchen, the coal furnace. And, she and I both grew up in Indiana, which sorta brings it all home, so to speak. Also love the Charlie Brown Christmas special and the Grinch.
