My kids (and I : ) seem to be on a holiday movie kick...I'm not a huge fan of some of them, but others I love (like the Christmas in Plum Creek episode of Little House on the Prairie). What are your favorites?

I love The Santa Clause. (The second one is fine, too--Liliana Mumy totally steals that movie, IMO.) I can't even think about seeing Christmas with the Kranks because, to me, Tim Allen is Santa Claus.

I also love It's a Wonderful Life.

Hmmm...Miracle on 34th Street older version or newer version?

Anyone remember Emmet Otter's Jugband Christmas? I have to see if I can find it somewhere...

Have any of you seen the made for TV movie of The Best Christmas Pageant Ever? My aunt recorded this years ago, but we can't find an original. Anyone, anyone..but the book is awesome. My kids beg me to read it all of the time..chapter by chapter.

I love reading to my kids...

Oh and I love all of the National Lampoons movies..it's an addiction!

Miracle on 34th Street (original of course! I LOVE old movies!)
Nightmare Before Christmas
Muppets Christmas Carol
It's a Wonderful Life (my dad's name is Clarence..he is a third so no, not named after movie)

ooohh...I remember Emmet Otter we always used to watch that. We also used to watch Best Christmas Pageant Ever. My uncles were always recording something..now one is a patent lawyer and runs around buying all the movies he always pirated. :LOL

I love Miracle on 34th Street (the original) and White Christmas. I also love The Ref, however that's most definitely not a kid's movie.

Boo hiss on Abimommy. Best Xmas movie of all time. Even 24 hours in a row on TNT. I love it. I can't get enough.

I'm a sucker for the older animated/claymation movies like "Frosty the Snowman" and "Rudolph".
