    For me, it's a close call between A Christmas Story and Gremlins.

    Well, if no one else is going to say it:

    It's a Wonderful Life. I never get tired of it.

    I always liked A Christmas Story.

    Like the Die Hard 1 and 2 reference. Also Family Man, but the life with the Ferrari.

    Another vote for Die Hard.

    Love, Actually and Home Alone are also close to the top of my list.

    Passion of christ is pretty good for a gory christmas film, or would it be considered an easter film... hmm...

    Another vote for A Christmas Story.

    I'm pretty sure that would fall in with Easter.

    Ernest Saves Christmas - Always a laugh, shame no one seems to remember it!

    Santa Claus (1985) - Not the Tim Allen one, the one with Dudley Moore. Again, another classic not many remember!!

    Pretty much the same ones already mentioned.

    I would throw in Hustler's Barely Legal Christmas Movie. Very under rated. :eek:

    A Christmas Carol
    1999, with Patrick Stewart.

    IMO a powerful performance by Stewart, movie stays relatively close to the book as well. I can watch it any time of year.

    A Christmas Story comes in a close second, though. So quotable. "I triple dog dare you!"

    Without any doubt;

    Die Hard (masterpiece, the second ones also Christmassy but... meh)
    Home Alone 2
    Planes, Trains and Automobiles (yes not Christmas, but close enough for someone who doesn't celebrate thanksgiving)

    Bad Santa is okay too.

    For me it's a tie between "It's a Wonderful Life" and "Love Actually."

    "Sound of Music" is a close runner up. I watch all three of these movies every year! :D

    Edward Scissorhands.

    The new "Christmas Carol" with Jim Carrey may take it's place. I really loved it.
