The Best Christmas Movies

I've been called a Christmas fanatic, a Christmas-aholic and a Christmas freak (upon many others, I'm sure lol). So I'd like to share some Christmas wisdom. And what do I know more about than Christmas?...MOVIES of course! So here are some that I watch at Christmastime (or all year long lol). They aren't in any particular order, just what I thought of when I started typing. If you feel that a grave miscarriage of justice has been done because I've left off one of your favorites, let me know, I may have just forgotten it because I've had a long couple of days. And also, if you haven't see ALL of these movies...WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR...CHRISTMAS?! ;-)
Christmas with the Kranks
The Santa Clause
The Polar Express
Miracle on 34th St (the original, but preferably in color)
A Christmas Story
Planes, Trains & Automobiles
The Family Stone
How the Grinch Stole Christmas
A Christmas Carol
National Lampoons Christmas Vacation
Home Alone (I will include 1 & 2, but NOT 3)
Frosty the Snowman
A Charlie Brown Christmas
It's a Wonderful Life
The Family Man
Santa Claus is Coming to Town
Jingle All the Way
A Christmas Carol (the one with George C. Scott. all others suck)
Deck the Halls
Jack Frost
Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer
Comfort and Joy (this a made for TV one, but it's one of my faves)
Twas the Night Before Christmas (the animated one with the mice and the clock)
While You Where Sleeping*
The Holiday*
Last Holiday*
Love, Actually*
We also like to watch some religious ones at Easter and Christmas. Some of our favorites include...
The Greatest Story Ever told
The Passion of the Christ
The Ten Commandments
Merry Christmas!!
*These are not necessarily Christmas movies, they are just set at Christmastime and I always watch them at Christmastime.

I have never seen A Christmas Story but have it on my DVR ready to watch (even though Christmas has passed)! And While You Were Sleeping and The Holiday are two of my favorite movies! I also love Office Space, Can't Buy Me Love (the original), and He's Just Not That Into You : )
