I try to watch as many Christmas themed movies as I can during the holidays.  My list isn't going to include 'It's a Wonderful Life' 'Elf', 'Christmas Carol' or even 'Elf' nope. My list includes classic funny holiday movies, some crazy critters, robber and even a sappy love story.

First and for most - National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation!  This is a classic for me, it never gets old watching the very disfunctional Griswold family celebrate Christmas!

Next, it may seem strange but I still enjoy watching the Gremlins.  It's not your traditional feel good Christmas movie - but nothing says family like gremlins on a rampage during the holidays.  I'm weird, I know LOL

Another I enjoy is The Family Man.  It's one of those what if my life were as it is movies where a man has to figure out if he's happier with success or the humble life he leads with his wife and kids.  I cry every time I watch it - cheesy I know.LOL

I can you not love Planes, Trains and Automobiles?  Two words explain why I do Steve and John, as in Steve Martin and John Candy.  This film is hilarious and heartwarming.  One of my favorites.

Finally, Home Alone.  I remember seeing this on date that lead nowhere (that's another story) Home Alone is such a holiday classic - a boy gets left behind alone in is home at Christmas time and fends off robbers trying to break in to his house.  It doesn't matter how many times I've seen this movie, its still funny and heartwarming too!
