If you could only choose 1 movie......

I'm a newbie here so this has probably been discussed somewhere in the past, but humor me anyway. (: (: (:

If you could only watch one Christmas movie a year, what would it be?

OK, now that I think about it, that's WAY too hard......how about your top three movies? If you could only watch 3 Christmas movies a year, what would they be?

Mine would probably be:

A Christmas Story
Christmas with the Kranks
Elf

However, that may just change from year to year.

I would choose:
1. A Christmas Story
2. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
3. Home Alone


Of course I have many others that I would watch but, these are my top 3 all the time. I can fill in the gaps with all of the animated shows like Charlie Brown!
