    I really like that movie with Charles Bronsun. I think it's, "Yes, Virginia, There is a Santa." I haven't seen it for years.

    This time of year is too early for Christmas, but nearer actual Christmas:

    A Christmas Story.
    Black Christmas, Bob Clark version.
    Charlie Brown Christmas.
    Miracle On 34th st, either version, preferably the Natalie Wood version.

    Various Christmas variety specials, especially ones from the 1960s and 1970s, when Varitey Shows were the in thing. I will include the Denis Leary and Stephen Colbert ones.

    A Christmas Carol, various versions, usually a lighter one, a more serious one, and the Alistair Sim one.

    Christmas At Mole End. A Favorite.
    Mr. Bean's Christmas
    Christmas In Conneticut. I have started watching that a couple years ago and have grown on it.
    It's A Wonderful Life
    Meet Me In St. Louis, at least the Christmas part.

    THIS!!

    Charlie Brown already mentioned. So was the Macy's Parade. You can also toss in Planes, Trains, and Automobiles in there too.

    And of course, football! :)

    See post number 11? Yeah, Agatha has the whole box set of that crap. Ugh.

    I do loves me "The Ref," however. That's a great Xmas movie.

    We just love David Letterman's Christmas show, which is a few days before Christmas...he has Darlene Love sing Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) and Jay Thomas try to knock a giant meatball off the top of the Christmas tree with a football.

    Ah...traditions.

    I like to watch a few of the ones mentioned here, but I don't have any must sees every year. If I'm busy at work this time of year I may just miss out on all of them, no big deal.

    Old thread bump alert but hey, it's that time of year. :)


    Already recorded and watch Rudolph, Grinch, and Charlie Brown.

    Awaiting the return of It's Wonderful Life and Miracle on 34th Street (b&w).

    Watched Elf twice so far (we watch while putting up the tree).

    Anyone guilty of viewing these or others as of today?

    Not until the Christmas season, and then we'll watch Christmas Vacation, Charlie Brown, Grinch, ff through Rudolph, start to watch Santa Claus is Coming in Town and remember how bad it is and turn it off.

    I saw Rudolph advertised, and planned to watch, but got sidetracked and forgot. I might see what's on Christmas-wise, but the way things are going, I probably won't have time to see them before the 4th of July! :eek: :p

    Is Sound of Music a holiday show?

    There will certainly be college football bowl games.

    I think I have every Christmas show imaginable on my computer ready to be transferred over to the TiVo to watch. I'm sure the kids will go through most of them, some of them twice in the next month.
