    The Christmas Story is definitely my favorite. That BB gun is such a temptation and I love hearing Gavin McGraw swearing away in the basement while trying to get the furnace to work. And who doesn’t love a pink bunny suit? It is a great story full of fun moments.

  • Posted December 3, 2013 at 3:43 pm | Permalink

    Well, I can’t have Christmas without Charlie Brown’s Christmas. I love all the Rankin Bass shows, and Rudolph and Frosty. I really like Veggie Tale’s Toy who Saved Christmas – I’ll watch it even tho the kids are grown. A Christmas Carol and It’s a Wonderful Life are great for reminding you of the reason for the season. For holiday stress relief, there’s nothing like A Christmas Story and Christmas Vacation – both hilarious. Hmmm, I guess it would be easier to list the ones I don’t like!

    My favorite Christmas movie depends on my mood at the time I sit down to watch TV.

And my favorite not-a-Christmas-movie-but-best-Christmas-scenes is “You’ve Got Mail”. I lost my parents at Christmastime and the scene in which Meg Ryan talks about missing her mom at Christmas is just so true.
