Christmas Vacation

The Family Stone
Bad Santa
Love Actually
A Christmas Story (I only add that one in because my sister forces us all to watch that movie when it's on its 24-hour kick during Christmas... so it's become a tradition.)

I watched Picard's version and I watched the 1984 version. I like elements of each, but I liked the 1984 version better. There is also a 1950's black and white edition which I hear is actually quite good as well.

Btw, I am a fan of Picard. I do like Stewart, especially the American Dad.

Yes, only in the movies can brothers and sisters change boyfriends/girlfriends and everything works out squeaky clean. I love it though.

"Scrooge - A Christmas Carol" 1951 starring Alastair Sim is my favourite.

The Star Wars Holiday Special - I remember watching the first bit of it. We'd just come back from Christmas shopping and while my mom hid the good stuff I watched this. I didn't see the movie but it was so popular I knew all of the characters.

A Christmas Story is great.

The cartoon "Little Drummer Boy", "The Year Without a Santa Claus", "Nestor the long earred donkey", and my favourite "The First Christmas: The Story of the First Christmas Snow" (the last two always made me cry when I was little).

Mr. Kruger's Christmas. It's a short, but quite a touching performance by Jimmy Stewart.
