I went with A Christmas Story mainly because it really has a Christmas feel. Even though it takes place in a time before I was born, it does kinda remind me of when I was a child.

It was a toss up between Elf and It's a Wonderful Life. I went with Elf because every time I watch it, I laugh until it hurts to laugh and then I laugh some more.

Since Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reineer wasn't on the list, I voted for A Charlie Brown Christmas.

I had to go with A Christmas Carol (Alistair Sim) because Christmas Carol is my favorite Christmas story and it was the only version listed. This is one of my favs, but my most favorite is Scrooge with Albert Finney.
