I really enjoy The Family Stone

Great case and great movie IMO, especially for families who have or are dealing with loss

Christmas Story is my absolute favorite but Deck the Halls and Four Christmases aren't bad either.

I had no idea there was a 60's version. the 1986 TV Movie version was an integral part of my childhood.

Starting to watch theses movies tonight while I study. I will start with the 1950's Christmas Carol (if I can find it)

If this is the one, it is available on youtube

Disney's A Christmas Carol (the latest with Jim Carey voicing Scrooge)
The Polar Express
Little Man and I watch these on Christmas Eve, while enjoying hot cocoa. Our little tradition, if you will.

BUT...Christmas for me doesn't start until Santa passes in front of Macy's and really kicks into full force once I watch "Rudolph, the Red Nose Reindeer", and enjoy the melodies of Burl Ives. #bumblesbounce

I enjoy most of the same ones already listed but I think Four Christmases is funny as hell. If you've never seen it, you need to give it a try.

In no particular order:

Miracle on 34th Street
White Christmas
Christmas Story
It's a Wonderful Life
The Family Stone

I also love the TV shows How the Grinch Stole Christmas and Charlie Brown. I watched those shows every year when I was little and that's how I knew Christmas was close by. I love Christmas, but I don't get the excitement about it that I used to. I think it's because my fam lives in Texas. I'm very family oriented, esp during the holidays.

You know my favorite parts of Home Alone are the first act when they show Kevin's interaction with his family (though the shower scene may have leaned into Sandusky territory) and the scene with old man Marley (I love that they named him Marley as a throwback to a Christmas Carol). I haven't watched this movie in over 15 years. It is high time I correct this.











Old Man Marley was played by Roberts Blossom. He was an actor but a poet as well. He died in 2011.
