There are so many wonderful Christmasy movies. One of my favorites is Love Actually. I think my reasons have to do with eye candy though.

Oh and you just gotta love the Grinch. The 66 version :)

Nice list! I love Home Alone - sooo funny. I think I even saw that in the theater when it first came out. My husband is a big National Lampoon fan and we always make a point of watching that one together over the holidays.

I love White Christmas, with a voice like Bing you can't go wrong.

The original Grinch is also a fav.

Happy TT!

It's a Wonderful Life on Christmas Eve while drinking Bailey's on the rocks. It's a tradition my Jewish husband came up with.

Schmaltzy? Absolutely...but reliably so.

ok, so I would of added, "Its a wonderful Life", mainly because Jimmy Stewart is one of my favorite actors.
Love your list!
