ENTER! TV/Media Av Contest:Christmas Favorites

Well, with Christmas just over, I thought it was time to give one final nod to our favorite Christmas specials--any movie or TV show that you love watching, year after year, at Christmas time.

I'll allow any genre, as long as there is a Christmas theme to it somehow. So Die Hard, Doctor Who Specials? Sure. True Grit? No, even if you watch it every Christmas.

Standard avatar rules apply. I'll try to get the poll up on January 2nd.

I'll get us started, with one of the movies I watch every year, It's a Wonderful Life.

In my defence I'd have picked this even if you hadn't suggested it

Since Die Hard has already been taken, I'll go with my second-favourite Xmas movie, The Bishop's Wife...

My brothers and I grew up with Dr. Seuss. Mom got this book for us and when the cartoon was made we watched every year. In fact, I still watch.
