    I agree National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation should be in the Top 5. My rank would be #1, it's not Christmas without Cousin Edie emptying his septic tank in the gutter, love it. We all have Crazy Relatives.

    A Christmas Story would be way up there too.

    Home Alone is great, except when it ends with the sappy and mushy family scene. I'm guilty of choking up everytime. The robbers are hilarious.

    Bad Santa is funny, my favorite part is when he's eating lunch in the mall on his break and he yells at a lady wanting her son to talk to Santa.

    Any of The Simpsons Christmas Episodes are hilarious, especially when Bart changes the words to Jingle Bells, HA HA, Classic!

    Family Guy's Christmas Episode is great.

    I love Mr. Krueger's Christmas, I guilty of crying like a baby. LDS films know how to tug at the heart strings.

    The "Muppet's Christmas Carol" is hilarious. It should be on the list.

    You got most of my favorites: Christmas Story, It's A Wonderful Life and Mr. Kruger's Christmas.

    The scene where Jimmy Stewart is kneeling at the feet of the Savior of the world as the new-born king is in the manger brings tears to my eyes every time. Can you imagine kneeling at the feet of the Son of the Supreme Creator?

    As a side note I also like the old cartoon version of The Grinch That Stole Christmas becaue I like the "Mr. Grinch" song. I sing that one to my 7 yr old girl sometimes.

    Hope everyone has a great holiday season!

    Christmas vacation belongs in the top ten. Can't disagree with It's a Wonderful Life being #1 though. That movie is a classic.

    The Dnews has finally caught on to postings lists of 10 to get readers and attention. This one was voted on by citizens of the town of Obvious.

    Home Alone not in the top 10? Can't believe it. I watch that one every year on Thanksgiving night after all the relatives have gone home.

    I need to look for "Fitzwilly" that looks like a good movie to watch. Love TMC Channel.

    Apparently noone has seen my favorite: "Fitzwilly" starring Dick VanDyke. This movie is hilarious and you can't buy on DVD yet, but Turner Classic Movies shows at least a couple of times in December, so check it out. The basic story is about a butler to a widow who thinks that she is rich, but she really isn't, however the butler doesn't have the heart to tell her this, so he steals from the ritzy stores and sells the loot to keep money in her bank account. The interesting twist is that he in doing all of this for the various charities that she gives her money to. When someone who isn't part of the scheming comes into the house the laughs begin and the butler has to pull off the biggest caper ever on Christmas Eve to save the day. A Must see!!!

    The Bishop's Wife is my favorite. It should have been in the top ten.

    How did you miss "Santa Claus is Coming to Town"? It trumps Rudolf.

    Funny - We thought Little Women (Ryder) was just our family Christmas tradition.

    "The Bishop's Wife," with Cary Grant and Utah's own Loretta Young is awesome.

    NatLamp's Christmas vacation should have been top 10. Weird relatives, shopping and decorating beyond excess, yeah that's the stuff.
