    This weekend I watched my all time favourite Christmas movie - 1985 Santa Claus The Movie (with Dudley Moore). Which always gets me into the Christmas spirit, I'm sure everyone has their favourites too. Please let me know in the comments yours.
    Like everyone, finding gifts for someone or finding the money to buy gifts is hard sometimes. After watching the movie I decided to create a T-shirt to put on Amazon, so people can have a simple gift to get someone, if your struggling to buy for them. Also you help me get a few pennies together to grab gifts for the one's I love.
    Please find below my Link to To-2019 Merry Christmas-Novelty Star Tree T-Shirt
    (with small Stars shaped like snowflakes).

    Hope Everyone Likes And Merry Christmas 2019.

    P.S. Tell me your favourite and how it inspires you? Plus give me a few ideas of classic Christmas movies I can watch.

    -glitterstocking-My favorite Christmas movie has always been White Christmas. It inspires me because I love that era. It's during that era my parents met, fell in love and got married, and started their family.

    For me, A Christmas Story, just so warm and funny, and seems so real and nostalgic (though it was a bit before my time). Kinder, gentler, simpler, more innocent time. Also most versions of A Christmas Carol. Actually there's a lot of favorites for me.

    I have so many but I would have to pick A Charlie Brown Christmas, even though it is only an hour. I read how the network tried to make Charles S. take out the quotation from the Gospel and he refused.

    Charlie Brown gets through to all ages the true meaning of Christmas.

    It's a Wonderful Life - Why - because I'm living that "life". Great wife, great kids, old house, neighborhood, community, family... friends. We don't have a lot of flash in our lives but what we have is good and that's what counts. Life is good, not perfect, but once you come to know and accept that, life becomes "wonderful".

    This seems to be a thinly veiled attempt to advertise something, but I'll bite since the idea for the thread is a good one.

    While it's hard to narrow it down to just one, my single favorite Christmas movie is probably National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. It's just too entertaining and has such a great vibe, and watching it is also very nostalgic for me. It's easily my favorite Chevy Chase movie.

    It's a shame that we don't get great Christmas movies more often. There really hasn't been much of note since Elf, and that was 15 years ago.

    These are two that I still haven't seen. White Christmas is one that I keep meaning to get to every year and never do. It Happened on Fifth Avenue . . . well, I'm not sure I've even heard of it until right now! But I could tell just from the title that it's a Golden Age classic.

    Another good one from that era that hasn't been mentioned yet is The Bishop's Wife.

    Sounds like a good life and a great attitude.

    It's a Wonderful Life is truly a classic. I didn't come to appreciate it until I became an adult--growing up I always preferred its contemporary Miracle on 34th Street and would pit the two against each other in my mind--but as an adult, I would much rather watch IAWL.

    There's a lot of interesting history surrounding that film as well, such as how it was a box office bomb when first released and didn't become popular until its copyright ran out and TV stations started playing it non-stop in the 80s.

    "Miracle" is probably my second most favorite Christmas movie. Great film to begin the season with!
