Just watched Christmas vacation the other night and it was great. I'm kind of getting in the Christmas Spirit. Just curious if there are some movies you guys like watching during the christmas season. (I know it's early but there is snow on the ground where I live)

I also love,

Christmas Story
Gremlins

Definitely one to watch for this time of year. It is probablly the most iconic Christmas film right behind A Christmas Story.

Other films that I love to watch this time of year:

The Grinch Who Stole Christmas--Jim Carrey
The Ref
Gremlins
Jingle all the Way
Mixed Nuts


Those are just a few must sees!

I watch christmas vacation every christmas since 1993 when I got it on video, samo goes for a christmas story. I should get them on dvd cause the tapes are getting kinda warned out. I also love gremlins, and trading places - I just got it on dvd, I'm gonna watch around christmas and eat some holiday food. ah, good times.

I also have a couple of tapes of sitcoms' holiday episodes, like married with childern, murphy brown, stuff like that. I love christmas

I always watch "Clue" at Christmas. I know it's not a Christmas movie it just reminds me of Christmas for some reason. [Smile]

Hey I love Clue and have never thought of watching it around Christmas time. I always do any other time of the year but then. HUH, gives me an idea......

I love Emmet Otter's Jug Band Christmas too! Great kid flick that adults will enjoy too!

While we're on this, what's everyone's favorite part of Xmas Vacation? I'd have to go with Uncle Lewis burning down the tree and them catching on fire himself. The look of sheer horror on Clark's face as he sees his perfect tree destroyed is classic.

I guess things never change. I watched Christmas Vacation two days ago and it appears I watched it the same exact day 4 years agao!!!

I think once the first snowfall hits my mind goes right to this movie. Seriously such a great movie and a great Christmas movie. Warms your heart and makes you laugh your guts out at the same time.

Random but does anyone have the Moose Mugs from this movie? And also I know there are "official" ones out there but I have not seen any that look exactly like they do in this movie. Just curious if you can even get them....

I watch "It's A Wonderful Life" every Christmas Eve with my parents and then we watch "Christmas Vacation" on Christmas day at some point. The movie "Elf" is now in the rotation because my niece and nephew enjoy it so much.

I have added "Die Hard" and "Night of the Comet" to my Christmas late night watch list for this year.
