My Ho-Ho-Holiday Faves

Posted by at 9:31 am in Movies & TV | Permalink

As the holidays roll around, it seems I’m constantly making lists. Things to do, gifts to buy, parties to go to (okay, THAT list isn’t too long), and I figured: why not have some fun with my list-making obsession and apply it to one of my favorite things . . .TV? So I’ve made my list and checked it twice — here are my favorite holiday TV specials and movies.

  • How the Grinch Stole Christmas
  • A Christmas Story
  • Santa Claus is Coming to Town
  • Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
  • 8 Crazy Nights (rated PG-13)
  • Elf
  • Polar Express
  • Home Alone
  • Frosty the Snowman
  • Miracle on 34th Street

*BONUS* Rankin Bass’ The Year Without a Santa Claus is a bonus fave.

Now all I need is a mug of hot chocolate and my remote control. What about you? What shows or specials would make your list?
