No mention of National Lampoons Christmas Vacation. The most funny Christmas film of all time and one of the funnies movies made period!
What about Scrooged with Bill Murray?
Deck the Halls with Danny Devito and Matthew Broadrick is another classic.
Charlie Brown Christmas was listed. Anything Peanuts is hilarious.
Elf is overrated. Will Farrol is a riot but somehow his movies are not.

Elf was awesome, but I agree with The Rocker; Christmas Vacation should be at, or near the top.

Ephraim, UT

Are you kidding me, that has been one of the worst Christmas flavored movies I have ever seen.

Provo, UT

"A Christmas Story" should be #1. Come on D-News readers!

I don't know if this is a "Christmas movie" but "The Ref" with Dennis Leary cracked me up (understandably most D-News readers have never seen this movie) and quite frankly the original "Home Alone" is as good as Elf. Again, come on D-News readers.
