    Yes, another Christmas thread but I CAN'T HELP IT! I just love Christmas soooo much. A day where Christians complain about Atheists, Atheists complain about Christians and Agnostics just sit back and enjoy the egg nog.

    So what are your favorite Christmas movies/specials?

    I'm looking forward to The Colbert Christmas, I think the guy's pretty funny.

    The Simpsons Christmas special was pretty weak but no surprises there. However, I did love the WWII short because I loved Inglorious Basterds.

    Favorite X-Mas movie has always been A Christmas Story.

    The Santa Claus. Classic. (The one without an E...i.e without Tim Allen)

    And I think it's a given, but Home Alone.
    The old classic comedies like Naked Gun and Airplane.

    Only Fools and Horses if you're in th UK. That's on constantly over the Christmas period - I love it!

    A Christmas Story will always be my favorite Christmas movie. Fa ra ra ra ra ra ra ra ra, indeed. As for Christmas movies that don't have anything to do with Christmas aside from taking place during Christmas time, Die Hard, followed by Gremlins. Specials, The Charlie Brown Christmas is the only acceptable answer. Mr. Magoo's Christmas and and Garfield's Christmas are runners up (they got some excellent songs).

    Huh?

    And I wouldn't say Christmas vacation is the best, but it's definitely good, Bret.

    Make Silent Night, Deadly Night your new Christmas tradition.
    I did, once as a kid. And look at me now, Ma! I SAID LOOK AT ME.....................

    Seriously though, it's great. And it's on Youtube wtf cool
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j2HKlPKNzt8

    has nudity (in an awesome kill scene)... wonder if that's in the youtube version. no, not the scene in the beginning. that's just the stuff nightmares are made of.


    A Charlie Brown Christmas is cool, shitty tree and all. And who could forget Mickey's Christmas Carol with Uncle Scrooge? Classic.

    Haven't seen the Jim Carrey Christmas Carol. And we've seem to forgotten Friday After Next.

    ha, it's uncensored.

    So it isn't a Christmas movie in the strictest sense, but it's still amazing.
