Well I voted for A Christmas Story just because I have to watch that every year. I do have Christmas Vacation box set that came with the movie, Santa hat, fake snow, and button. So both of them are my favorite.

Did what I said I was gonna do!
Picked my Grand kids up around 4:30 yesterday. Stopped by the grocery store. Needed a few things most important being Ranch Dressing. I didn't know until I picked them up that all three consider Ranch Dressing a food group. All three only like Cheese Pizza, and my grandson, the 2 year old, has to have the cheese scrapped off. Lactose intolerant!
Went from there to the local Lil Cesar's, got two Pizzas, and then home.
We watched the old carton Grinch stole Christmas
Jim Carey Grinch
Lil drummer boy
Rudolph
Santa Clause is coming to town
Frosty The Snow man
Polar Express
Two Charlie Browns
Pizza, Pop Corn
Bacon and eggs for Breakfast
Pizza again for lunch

I had a really good time, too bad Ma'am had to work
Thanks for the idea!

I voted christmas vacation.Snotts the dog,the turkey bursting open,and Uncle.... setting the tree on fire while lighting his stogie bring out the giggles.

I also enjoy Badder Santa.

And for our non-gentile brothers and sisters,try "The Hebrew Hammer". The son of Santee(Andy Dick) kills Santa and then tries to do away with Hanuka. The J.J.L. (Jewish Justice League) employs the Hebrew Hammer and with the help from the K.L.F. (Kwanza Liberation Front),saves Hanuka. It's a damn funny movie.

In the spirit of bumping threads back up over the past couple days...

I find myself sitting here, with my wife and two boys in front of a fire with a nice bourbon, and I was about to create a new thread. Come to find out...it's already been created (of course it has though...thanks @trailhugger)

So I'm an 80s baby and I can nearly quote Home Alone 1 & 2 by heart so these are of course my votes...

Tim Allen in the Santa Clause (1 and 2...3 is lame af if you ask me) is a close 2nd.

Christmas Story is just okay in my book...I get it for all the boomers in the room...y'all grew up on this, like my parent did, but let's be real...Home Alone is the real deal. I mean, it's got #stillyourpresident @therealdonaldtrump in it so how can it not be the best??!!

Since we first saw it on Netflix in 2018, The Star is a family favorite.

My kids saw Home Alone and Home Alone 2 last year and can quote both so well it's scary. I think they've watched the trailers recently, so they already know it's about that time of year.
