DD was at a craft show last weekend. She said that there was a vendor selling replica Charlie Brown trees. Little scraggly evergreens on a wooden base and with a single heavy ornament pulling the tip over toward the ground. I guess they were selling really well!
The old school 'Babes in Toyland' with Drew Barrymore and Keanu Reeves.. not the best acting, but I adored this movie as a kid.
And of course, Home Alone 1 and 2.

One of my favorite christmas movies is The Homecoming. That must have been on in the late 70s when I was a kid. yeah, I am an older mom! But I still find it very moving. Another favorite as a kid was mr. magoo's christmas carol. Probably no one has even heard of mr. magoo and I never actually saw any of the other mr. magoo cartoons, but this one has some really nice songs in it and I still like it. My kids saw it last year (13 and 8) and they actually liked it better than frosty or rudolph. little bear's solstice special is another fav, but my kids are kind of old for little bear now!
One I forgot is Annabelle's Wish. It's a bit on the sappy side, but my kids adore it.

Just to warn others - National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation has a lot of swears and some sexual references in it, so we haven't watched it with our boys yet.
Our boys really enjoyed Elf and Home Alone. Rudolph is a yearly tradition.
One more holiday movie that no one has mentioned yet is Fred Claus with Vince Vaughn. We watched that last year and are looking forward to seeing it again this year.
