So, I welcome your choices in the combox and your reasons why. You can tell us why It's a Wonderful Life is anti-Catholic, if you like (or perhaps Communist propaganda). Or you can tell us why you think that movie is a wonderful affirmation of faith.
Does the profanity in The Christmas Story ruin the whole thing? Did Fred Savage steal the whole genre of talky reminiscing?
Some movies just define the Christmas season for those of us raised in front of a television. In fact, feel free to name your favorite TV specials, too. Are you a Rudolph person or a Grinch person? Will commercial TV ever show The Little Drummer Boy again and just how did they get away with it the first time?
Rack your brain, some movies straddle the line on whether they are even Christmas movies at all. While You Were Sleeping is one of my favorites.
