    OK, here are mine, (This includes TV Christmas specials as well as films).:

    1. A Charlie Brown Christmas – Linus Van Pelt’s explanation of the meaning of Christmas is one of the greatest things ever made for TV.

    2. How The Grinch Stole Christmas. 1966 Cartoon version – Chuck Jones’s animation coupled with a script by Seuss, songs by Tony The Tiger himself, Thurl Ravenscroft, and narration by Boris Karloff. How can it be other than supreme?

    3. A Christmas Story.- Who Knew that the director of raunchy sex comedy, Porky’s could make such a classic, that one of the kids would wind up doing porn, or that Ralphie would produce Iron Man?

    4. Love, Actually.- Multiple interconnected stories all culminating around Christmas. One of my late wife’s all time favorites.

    5. Rudolph, The Red Nosed Reindeer. – The first TV Christmas special, from 1964, by the excellent Rankin-Bass stop motion studio. See the Mad TV spoof, “Martin Scorsese’s Raging Rudolph” if you have not, it is brilliant.

    Honorable mention: TV special Santa Claus Is Coming To Town. – Another Rankin Bass, featuring Fred Astare narration and a bad guy called the Burgermeister Meisterburger. That alone makes it worth seeing.

    You know Allissa I was nicknamed Stripe because I used to do a Gremlins voice impression.

    Top 5 Christmas movies:

    1) The Year Without a Santa Claus (love the Miser Brothers)
    2) A Christmas Carol, most any of them but the George C. Scott one is my favorite
    3) Rudolph, The Red Nosed Reindeer
    4) Frosty the Snowman
    5) Gremlins… because… you know… my handle is Stripe
