It's a wonderful life. Every year Christmas eve. Part of the tradition and exemplifies the ultimate life experience.


White Christmas and National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.


I just love A Christmas Story. Have to watch it every year!


The Sound of Music - every year since I can remember it is on national TV and cinemas around town at Christmas. Great story, loads of kids, fantastic music... somehow it feels cozy and warm and christmasy. It's a Wonderful Life - obvious. My kids love them too.

Love, Actually. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. And with the kids I love Elf, Grinch and Charlie Brown. For some reason I cannot stand "It's a Wonderful Life" I know, I lack a heart or soul or something.


A Charlie Brown Christmas, the Ref, and While You Were Sleeping.


I feel like Christmas is not complete unless I've watched A Charlie Brown Christmas. I will also admit to watching Bad Santa a lot. It's so inappropriate but the twisted humor gives me an opportunity to de-stress and laugh. Something that i personally cherish during this uber-stressful time of year.
