    Home Alone

  5. Thanks, now my DVR is going to be at 100% all season! 🙂 Great list, I look forward to catching some of these. I noticed Bad Santa didn’t make the list, is that not considered family friendly??! Lol. I’m looking forward to introducing my kids to A Charlie Brown Christmas this year.

  6. The Year Without a Santa Claus!

  7. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (kids)

  13. Thank you, Ladies! Going to share this on FB now. Love your blog and both of you, thank you for always having the perfect posts! This is hilarious because its not letting me post this comment because it says its a duplicate. I guess I am guilty of the crime of repeatedly telling you both how much I appreciate your efforts 🙂

  14. Favorite holiday movie by far —> A Christmas Story!! My family watches it over and over again. It never gets old!

  15. Oh my, I could never choose just one! So my top three are: It’s a Wonderful Life, A Christmas Story and Home Alone! 🙂

  16. Rosemary Hernandez says

    Ever since I can remember I waited with anticipation to watch the PEANUTS Christmas video. I still cry when Linus makes his speech. In a world that moves so fast and among a human race that doesnt stop to appreciate important stuff, I love this season and I love the Peanuts gang. They are still my favorite. I do still watch all the Christmas movies and love all the parades. Thank you so much for the schedule.

  17. Santa Claus the Movie and Elf are tied for me as my adult/grown up movies and hands down, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and Frosty are tied for the family :)Always brings Xmas cheer into the house!

  18. Wow, cool! I won’t even have to talk to my kids for the next month!!! Ha! Perfect with a newborn due to arrive any day 😉 Favorite?-
    A Christmas Story for sure…and the boys love Merry Madagascar.

  19. My daughter Breeze’s favorite holiday movie is Santa Paws. She got the movie last year for Christmas and I watched it with her all summer long.

  20. Definately A Year without a Santa Claus. It is my husband’s favorite and now the kids love it.

  21. Elf. Elf. Elf. For jokes, music and message.

  22. It has to be Phineas and Ferb. Though I am also a sucker for A Christmas Carol.

  23. A Christmas Story and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation~they never get old!

  24. Our favorites are Elf and Home Alone. We watch them over and over and over!

  25. Addison Kat says

    My favorite has always been Frosty the Snowman!

  26. We love to watch Rudolph

  27. Tonya Perkins says

    When Polar Express came out Santa got for my youngest daughter, we watched it 3 to 4 times a day for 2 months each year at Christmas. It got mixed up with another movie and got scratched, needless to say we weren’t heartbroken but my daughter unfortunately was. I just dread buying a new copy.lol

  28. I guess I’m a mean one, because I love the Grinch!

  29. Rebecca Vasey says

    My favorite movie has to be National Lampoon’s Christmas vacation! Such a classic movie that never gets old!

  30. I love pretty much ALL the Christmas movies but if I had to watch one over and over for the rest of my life it would probably be Elf!

  31. Love Dr. Seuss’s Grinch and Year without a Santa Claus. Those songs stick in my head to sing all day!
