My favourite of the cartoon variety is A Flintstone Christmas from 1977.
In terms of movies, The Family Stone is a fairly recent one I really like.

One thar became a Christmas movie in our family, because as a kid it was always played around Christmas, was Going My Way. Not a Christmas movie, per se, but it wouldn't be Christmas for me without it. In particular, I remember my mom and I watching it together.



Just Call Me Junior
We're all huge fans of "A Christmas Carol", in its many iterations. The version with George C. Scott as Scrooge being voted overwhelmingly by our family as #1.

I like a few more recent ones as a change from the old classics

This starring a very young Hayden Panetierre.

Love at the Christmas Table.

It's where this comes from.
A track by a ficticious group on an album played on a prewar phonograph with a mica diaphragm with a steel needle at 78 rpm.

A Gift Wrapped Christmas

Can't find a proper trailer..

Dear Santa

I loved Nightmare before Christmas - watched that with the kids over and over.

I'll have to say though I didn't care for what Disneyland did with the Haunted Mansion and the 'Nightmare before Christmas' changes.
Bad Santa - been a tradition here for many a year. Usually we have a lot of people over and share a bottle of Old Grand Dad but this year it was family only. RIP John Ritter and Bernie Mac.

Rudolph, Charlie Brown, several Christmas Carols interrupted by The Bishop’s Wife, Christmas in Connecticut,
A Night to Remember (someone has a crush on Barbara Stanwyck), The Muppet’s Christmas Carol plays on Christmas Eve, And Scrooge the Musical (with Finney and Guiness) on Christmas Day. And if we don’t go out - which we won’t this year - Ball of Fire (again with Stanwyck) on New Year’s Eve. Ball of Fire has nothing to do with New Year’s but it’s fun and I just like Barbara Stanwyck.
