  • Movies You Watch Every Christmas?

    Is there a movie that you watch every Christmas? I watch Elf every Christmas. I would have to say that it's my all time favorite movie. I know that it's a newer one and now a traditional Christmas movie, but I love it.

    Miracle on 34th St.
    House Without a Christmas Tree
    Christmas Story (not "A Christmas Story"....this one is a Finnish movie....highly recommended)
    the Alastair Sim version of A Christmas Carol

      Miracle on 34th Street (a colorized version)
      A Christmas Carol (the one with George C Scott)
      ... not every Christmas, but 3 of the past 4 years I've watched The Santa Clause

      Then my usual bevy of kid's Christmas specials (Charlie Brown, Rudolph, Year Without a Santa Claus, etc). But those aren't "movies."

        My new tradition which my husband can't stand is watching Frozen. He gets so mad at me because when the singing starts, I turn it up. He is not a Disney/Pixar fan.. haha

            I watch all the Scrooge movies each year. I can somewhat relate to him.

              I always watch some version of A Christmas Carol (either George C. Scott or Muppets), one of the Santa Clause movies (usually the first) and the special A Charlie Brown Christmas and How the Grinch Stole Christmas. I might sneak another couple of movies or specials in, but those are the must sees.

                  Falasben, do you start on Thanksgiving and watch 3-4 a day through Christmas?

                  I like Christmas movies but don't get to watch as many as I would like. I don't have any MUST see movies as it varies from year to year. A few that I never tire of are:

                  Any version of Miracle on 34th St
                  Any version of A Christmas Carol
                  Christmas Story
                  Any Grinch movie

                    In answer to your question, I actually start during the weekend before Thanksgiving. Lot's of them I have on DVD and some on TV. But yeah, I can watch 3 to 5 on the weekends, and 2 to 3 weekdays during the holiday season. My wife and daughter hate me for it as they get tired watching Christmas type movies all season long. That's why we have more than 1 TV in the house. I usually end up sometime around the 2nd weekend in the New Year when I'm done watching everything.


                    There are more movies I could list, but that's why I said I think I'll stop for now! LOL!

                        In addition to what I listed above....Polar Express, and the George C. Scott, 1935, and Muppet versions of A Christmas Carol. Not to mention numerous "classic" TV specials and Christmas episodes of TV shows.

                          I watch Christmas movies all year round but traditionally start my formal holiday viewing with "Die Hard" and "Die Hard 2".

                            I originally thought this would be easy to answer but after thinking about it, it wasn't as straightforward as I thought. I have a lot of stuff on dvd's. Movies that I've purchased or have recorded from tv. Plus lots of Christmas shows. Either Christmas episodes of the shows that I like or Christmas specials. I usually start watching them in November but I can't view everything that I have. And I do like to check out some of the new Christmas movies that come out every year.

                            That being said .. what do I always watch every year without fail.

                            Christmas Carol .. 1938 version
                            The Christmas Card
                            Silent Night ... the one with Linda Hamilton in it
                            The Most Wonderful Time of the Year
                            Christmas in Connecticut
                            Battle of the Bulbs
                            On the Twelfth Day of Christmas
                            While You Were Sleeping

                            Out of the tv show episodes .. I really enjoy

                            Little House on the Prairie - Christmas at Plum Creek (an oldie but a goodie)
                            NCIS and NCIS: LA have some great episodes
                            JAG : Ghosts of Christmas Past
                            Who's the Boss : The Christmas Card
                            the MASH Christmas episodes

                            I also like the Christmas shows that TLC put together (Christmas Collections, Christmas Crazy Lights, etc)

                              Hallmark Movies and Mysteries Christmas movies


                              I'm so happy to see another Christmas horror fan on here. Just curious, why the remake of Black Christmas over the original?
