    There's a lot of great Christmas movies out there, but what's the perfect Christmas movie? For me, it's a tie between It's a Wonderful Life and the original Miracle on 34th Street.

      I'd say It's a Wonderful Life. It's not one of my favorites, but it's essential around Christmas.

        I would have to go with A Christmas Story. To me, Christmas is not complete without it.

          My favorite is the "How The Grinch Stole Christmas" movie.

            A Christmas Story or A Christmas Carol.

              While not a true "Christmas" movie, any of the Home Alones do it for me. In fact, this time of year is the only time I can watch them!

                  As thrilling as Die Hard is, I don't know if it's the perfect Christmas film.

                            I usually watch Christmas Episodes of Mystery Science Theater. Along with the classics
                            Thats right I ran over the Taco Bell dog...... I got banned from Taco Bell for life.

                                A Christmas Story is a favorite of mine too.

                                  A Christmas Story is indeed one of the best! I love watching it on TV every year. I even have the DVD.

                                    For me, each holiday is complete when I've viewed each of the Charlie Brown specials that pertain to it. So, I would say that A Charlie Brown Christmas is my perfect choice.

                                      I might sound a bit weird, but I have a holiday tradition of watching the original Star Wars trilogy. I started doing it when I was in high school, and just kind of carried it on.

                                      As far as movies actually based on Christmas, I'd have to go with A Christmas Story, Christmas Vacation, and Scrooged as my favorites.

                                        Home Alone 2: Lost In New York. Nothing like Christmas in the Big Apple!!!

                                          The Santa Clause with Tim Allan. Better yet, Jingle all the way.
