santahat Top 5 Favorite Christmas Movies?

I am curious to know what everyone's top 5 favorite Christmas movies are. Not necessarily what you think are the best holiday movies of all time, but your personal favorites. I know it's hard to pick just 5, but here are mine:

1. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation - it wouldn't be Christmas without it.

2. Home Alone - this movie came out in 1990 when I was 7 years old and has been a staple during the holiday season ever since.

3. A Christmas Story - I appreciate this movie more and more every time I see it.

4. A Christmas Carol (1951) - This is the definitive version of the story for me with Alastair Sim as Scrooge. A classic.

5. The Santa Clause - Not a huge fan of the sequels, but the original has always been a favorite of mine with Scott Calvin..I mean Tim Allen as Santa.
