If you have multiple, list them all.

I am a huge Christmas movie sap...funny, sentimental, whatever, if its about Christmas, I'm likely to watch it. Same thing for music, when I was a kid, I played my christmas music all year long.

So what are your favorites?

1. Irving Berlin's White Christmas

2. Miracle Down Under (American Title: The Christmas Visitor)

3. A Christmas Carol starring George C. Scott

4. Are You Being Served? "Christmas Crackers"

5. Keeping Up Appearances "A Very Merry Hyacinth"

6. Family videos of Christmas Past that I've recorded to dvd. This year, one of the gifts I will give to my daughter, my sister, and my brother is a dvd copy of the vhs video of the family Christmas in 1986 to commemorate the 20th anniversary.

Music:

Crooners, such as Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole, Perry Como, Andy Williams, etc.

Classical, Celtic, Victorian, Peter White, Mannheim Steamroller, Roger Whitaker Christmas music.

I play holiday music (not the carols) everytime it snows...or even on especially cold days.

Being an oddball, I love Christmas music and programs when it is hot--June, July and August. What a nice surprise when someone puts on a Christmas program in the heat of summer!

My all time favorite movie is "A Christmas Carol", any version. Just watched the 1938 one today and it was great. Left out some of the important parts though, like when the spirit of Christmas future said--"this boy is ignorance and this girl is want. Watch out for them both, but particualrly the boy." Movie isn't the same without that warning.

Heck, I even love the Mickey Mouse version and the one with the Flintstones. Haven't seen the Muppet version but hope to.

Music. Feliz Navadad (sp?) Love it!

Not actually Christmas but "We Need a Little Christmas".

I will try to think of others...

I'm with you, Dori. A Christmas Carol is my favorite; the Patric Stuart one especially, but I love any version really. I love Scrooged. National Lampoons Christmas Vacation is an all time favorite, I can watch that a million times. Also, It's a Wonderful Life (which I haven't found on TV this year !), A Christmas Story (You'll shoot your I out)...Prancer...Seriously, about anything. Its funny, I generally hate sentimental movies, but you put santa in it or a christmasy theme, and I'm a sucker and will watch it laughing and crying the whole time.

As far as music, pretty much all the stuff that Catherine listed. My all time favorite, favorite is Baby, Its Cold Outside.

for me the season CANNOT start until i've seen national lampoons christmas vacation and at least one complete viewing of tbs 24 hr marathon a christmas story. both of those tickle my funny bone in just the right spot and get me settled in to roll through the holidays.

Rooster, I got a card this year that shows a little boy with his tongue stuck to the flag poll, when you open the card it says, "I double dog dare you".

Someone else obviously loves A Christmas Story too!
