Totally A Christmas Story. Of course The Nightmare Before Christmas is a good one, and Gremlins too. I just discovered Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale on Netflix and I think that has the potential to become a tradition. Someone here mentioned The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya and now I'm in the mood to watch it, so thanks for that.

The original "How The Grinch Stole Christmas", not that bad Jim Carrey version. And "Scrooge" with Alastair Sim. You can also throw "Miracle on 34th Street" in there for good measure.

Sad that only one person mentioned "It's a Wonderful Life" and they only said it wasn't Christmas-y enough. It is absolutely not Christmas without Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed, and the film stands as one of the greatest masterpieces of revered director Frank Capra's illustrious career. Capra himself considered the film to not only be the greatest picture he had ever made, but in fact the best film anyone had ever made, though it was panned by some critics at the time of its release as being too naive in a post-war America. I have seen this movie dozes of times, yet every time I watch it just as intently as if it were the first.

The film centers around George Bailey, a morally wholesome every man who through circumstance of life has taken over his father's business, Bailey Bros Building & Loan. Our story begins in the early part of George's youth and progress through his years into adulthood. The Building & Loan is the only business in the fictional town of Bedford Falls not under the control of the nefarious Mr. Potter, played exceptionally by famed patriarch of the Barrymore acting family, Lionel Barrymore. After an incident engineered the greedy wretch Potter, George stands to not only lose the Building & Loan, but also arrested and jailed.

With no hope left he can find, George drives to a bridge and laments that he wishes he had never been born and contemplates suicide. Unbeknownst to George, a ne'er-do-well angel hoping to earn his wings named Clarence is being sent to him and shows George exactly what he wished for: a world where he never existed. Clarence takes George on tour to show him what not only the lives of his close friends and loved ones but the entire town of Bedford Falls would be like had he never been born in hopes of proving to the dejected George Bailey that it truly is a wonderful life.

You want the moon? Just say the word and I'll throw a lasso around it and pull it down. Hey. That's a pretty good idea. I'll give you the moon, Mary.

^ A good show if you can find the un-cut version.

I prefer Bob Clark's direction of Jean Shepard's adaptation from novel "In God We Trust, Others Pay Cash" aka Christmas Story with Darren McGavin (Dad), Melinda Dillion (Mom), Peter Billingsley (Red Ryder BB gun kid), Ian Petrella (younger son) and supporting cast. I have watched this show over 300 times since its 1983 debut. Some scenes have been edited out (Jean Shepard's lively intro about the film while driving in his Bentley or Rolls-Royce on some Florida Interstate) (Flash Gordon). The scenes dealing with Santa Claus at the department store are priceless. I get a chuckle every time I watch it around this time of year.
