    A Christmas Story! I saw that at the theater the year it was released. I actually started liking it more as the years passed than I did when I saw it for the first time.

    That's what I picked too, looks like you and me are the only ones. I like the other Vacation and Story as well, but I figured everybody would be picking them.

    My finger was headed for Scrooged, but Christmas Vacation is a fav of my entire family. I couldn't go against the family...

    This was a tough one to answer since most the movies are all so good. However I went with a christmas story, since I always liked the book in god we trust and all others pay cash.

    I watch all of these every year. To have to pick just one is a toughie. I'll go Christmas Vacation. We usually watch it the day we put up outside Christmas decorations in early November and then again the week of Christmas.

    I always liked Art Carney as Santa in The Night They Saved Christmas though...

    I'm be the odd-woman-out who picked Santa Claus: The Movie. IMO, the first hour-ish or so (before the 20th Century appears) does a phenominal job at showing us how Santa came to be and the North Pole and whatnot. Warm fuzzies! cheesy

    Another great 80'S movie that most people forget is

    It Came Upon A Midnight Clear starring the wonderful Mickey Rooney. I try to watch it about 2-3 times a year.


    Mickey Rooney plays Mike Halligan, a retired cop from Manhattan living in California with his family who decides to show his grandson, who has never seen snow before, what a real white Christmas in New York is like. But he dies from a sudden heart attack in which Halligan makes a deal with the Archangel of Heaven to return to Earth for a week until Christmas and show his grandson the seasonal glories of New York City.
