    I havent seen one in ages, probably because ive just had sky put on. My daughter likes watching The Grinch but to be honest its not one of my favourites. Jim Carrey is really annoying!!

    I probably haven't watched one, beginning to end, since aound New Years. I'll stop and watch a few minutes of the shows I see when flipping through the TV channels. There seems to be a lot Christmas shows being shown by my cable provider (several a week), but I can't seem to fit in watching a whole program.

    I watched Mickey's Christmas Carol and Frosty about 2 or 3 weeks ago with my 2 year old son. He loves both of them so much. Im finally starting to get him excited about Easter because he is still singing Christmas songs lol..not that I mind but in public some people look at us like we are crazy..and my husband thinks we are too cheesy I hope I can turn my next son into a Christmas lover as well!

    I was channel surfing a couple of nights ago and came upon a Christmas episode of Family Matters, the one where an angel lets Laura see what it would be like to live Eurkels' life...very sweet.

    IT HAPPENED ON FIFTH AVENUE (1947). This comedy was unavailable for almost twenty years until it was released on DVD last year, but it has a devoted following. Not without reason — it's a charmer.

    The story, which moves from autumn through Christmas to New Year's Eve, is about a hobo (Victor Moore) who lives in deserted mansions on New York's 5th Avenue when their owners are down South at their winter residences. This season he befriends a young vet (Don DeFore) who's been displaced from his apartment. They are soon joined by the mansion owner's daughter (Gale Storm), who finds them in her house, but doesn't let on who she is. Next come two other vets and their wives, followed by the owner himself (Charles Ruggles), the 2nd-richest man in America, whom the daughter convinces to pretend to be another bum when he moves in. She also schemes to reconcile her divorced parents by bringing in her mother (Ann Harding) as the cook.

    If you like Frank Capra movies like YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU, IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE, or POCKETFUL OF MIRACLES, you'll enjoy this one too. In fact, it was originally a Frank Capra project until he sold the Oscar-nominated story to producer-director Roy Del Ruth. The themes in IT HAPPENED ON FIFTH AVENUE are very much in the Christmas spirit: the characters create a home and an ad hoc family, and through a generosity of spirit help each other solve their problems.

    It also introduced the song "That's What Christmas Means to Me", which was later a minor hit for Eddie Fisher.

    Well, I haven't watched a Christmas movie for a while. I recorded Home Alone 2 the other night but, I havn't had a chance to watch it yet. I did however, just watch 2 Christmas episodes of Frasier (Frasier Grinch and Merry Christmas Mrs. Moskowisk (sp?)) and I watched Home Improvement (Twas the Blight before Christmas, I'm Scheming of a White Christmas), I also watched a Christmas episode of WKRP in Cinncinatti, not sure of the title of the episode but, it was when Mr. Carlson was visited by the spirits of Christmas. That's about it for me I'm sure I'll be watching a movie or 2 sometime here in the near future though.

    I really thought I was the only one who watched all year long. I watched Home Alone the other day on ABC Family. Usually, The Family Stone is in the dvd player so I watch it over and over. Last night, I watched the Christmas episodes of ER Season 1.
