It really is a t.v. show. The Grinch that Stole Xmas. For some reason that t.v. show always has fascinated me. Try to watch it every year.

We love the Grinch ~ both the cartoon and the movie with Jim Carrey. My DH also loves the movie A Christmas Story!

I just watched Holiday Inn...love it! (I love that the invitation to Bing's Inn says 'Must Dress'. People today would probably think that meant 'clothing optional'!)
I also like Home Alone!

Merry Christmas!

Holiday Inn! I watch White Christmas too, which is a re-do of Holiday Inn but not half as good. I also love old, corney Christmas In Connecticut. Merry Chistmas to All!

Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer and the Land of Misfit Toys. At least I think that's its correct name!

Default Can't name just one

The Christmas season starts with "A Charlie Brown Christmas" at the beginning of December. Mid-December we watch a few old TV shows that we taped to VHS many years ago - A Muppet Family Christmas and a Julie Andrews Christmas. On Christmas Eve or Chrismas Day we will watch "A National Lampoon Christmas Vacation".

It doesn't seem like Christmas if we miss these or watch them out of order.

Have a Happy Healthy 2006!

Always love catching bits of "A Christmas Story" during TBS's 24 hours of Christmas

I drive from LI to NJ every year to be with my folks for the holiday and always listen to my tape of Patrick Stewart performing "A Christmas Carol" (it is a one actor version of the book - I've seen him perform it live - great show) as I drive home.

But my all-time favorite fiction Christmas book / movie is "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" by Barbara Robinson.

I like White Christmas, Holiday Inn, Heidi, A Christmas Story, Rudolph the Red Nose Raindeer (Claymation).

But every Christmas I HAVE to watch White Christmas. . . I'll be on the Noordam this year, so I might have to watch it before I go, or take along the DVD.
Christmas 2006 HAL Noordam's First Christmas

February 2009 HAL Noordam "Voyage of the Good Nuts"

August 2014 HAL Amsterdam 14 Day Alaska Explorer

On the horizon (2017-2018) Disney, Koningsdam, or back to Alaska?? Decisions, decisions.
