Well it's that time of year again. Lights are twinkling on peoples houses, trees are up and decorated, cookies baking in the oven, shopping malls a maze of frantic, somewhat psychotic, shoppers and the barrage of holiday movies on the tele smile.gif I was just wondering what movies are peoples faves to watch this time of year and what if there is that one movie that is a must. I have quite a few actually but here are a couple of must watches for me

5. It's a Wonderful Life

4. Home Alone

3. How the Grinch Stole Christmas

2. Christmas Vacation

1. A Christmas Story and my fave scene from this movie
