Christmas Vacation.

It's tradition in our household to watch Clark Griswold force a cheerful, "old-fashioned family Christmas" every December (black turtleneck dickies optional :-). I've always liked their cozy, typical movie house too.

A few other favorites this time of year: the family stone, elf, home alone, the holiday, a christmas carol, & while you were sleeping. Any other suggestions?

it's taken me 29 years to watch anything other than 'a christmas story' in preparation for christmas. we're a loyal family.

but i've branched out. i didn't go home last year, so i spent christmas eve by myself watching 'love, actually'. and it was perfect.

I am a huge fan of all the ones you mentioned. For some reason I often watch Lars and the Real Girl around Christmas, too. There's something about it that is just wintery and wonderful. xo

My new favorites are White Christmas and the Desk Set with Katherine Hepburn -- love discovering old movies!! The Family Stone is one of my all time favs and next on my list!

I LOVE Christmas Vacation and A Christmas Story. Home Alone ain't bad, either! Last year we watched Scrooged, which I had never seen before. It was entertaining but not my favorite.

i need to bust out my christmas movie collection. home alone is a definite favorite but they're all so good. elf is very quote-able so you gotta love that one too!
