    Charlie Brown is my number one followed by "The Nativity Story" but "Santa Claus Verses The Martians" is a close third.

    A Christmas Story gave us the leg lamp, you'll shoot yer eye out kid, fra-gee-lay and many more icons. The clear winner.

    Jingle All The Way!
    :p



    Though seriously, National Lampoons Christmas Vacation, Gremlins, Die Hard and Home Alone. In line with the other options? The Snowman.

    It used to be Christmas Story but Bad Santa has edged it out.

    Oops.

    I'd go with "Wonderful Life" and "Charlie Brown Christmas" tied for first.

    A Christmas Story is up there for the hilarious irreverance, as is National Lampoon's Christmas.

    I put some flicks on here that come in different versions. How many versions of "A Christmas Carol" are there? Which version of the Grinch do you like the best?

    Animated is the only acceptable answer.

    The Santa Clause, to me, is down there with Christmas with the Kronks, Four Christmases, etc. Yuck.

    No one likes Rudoph? Rudolph rocks. Songs like "Why am I such a misfit" and "We are Santa's Elves". Then there is Yukon Cornelius and the Abominable Snowman. I always thought the instuctor for the reindeer games was Don Adams. He sure does sound like Maxwell Smart.

    For me it's National Lampoon's. My family also has a bad habit of making obscure references from that movie.

    Can't see the line, can you Russ? ;)
