Holiday Traditions - Movies

What would the holiday season be like without the movies that we watch year after year after year? Whether it's flying reindeer, talking snowmen, a fuzzy green character who loathes Christmas, or a boy and his Red Ryder BB gun, the holidays just wouldn't be the same without these classic movies.

There's only one weekend left before Christmas! Which movies will you sit down to with your families? Click Here to see Cookie Magazine's Top 5 Holiday Films.

We want to know what you will be watching this year. Tell us about the holiday movies or programs you love by commenting on this post!

Miracle on 34th Street- newer version from late 90's. Chris Columbus produced it and has an incredible flare for the camera and makes everything like a dream. Everyone is exquisitely attired and the background music is almost like silk.

Well it won't be "It's a Wonderful Life." It's too depressing.

We love "A Little Princess." It has a wonderful Christmas scene. We like the newer version that came out a few years a go. It's also a wonderful opportunity to get the book and read a chapter every night. A nice calming thing to do at Christmas!

It's just NOT Christmas here unless we've seen ELF, A Christmas Story, It's a Wonderful Life & Christmas Vacation with Chevy Chase! :)

My daughter is 20 months old and we have watched Elmo's Christmas Countdown more times than I can count. She LOVES it... and the good thing is that it is a cute movie so parents will be able to watch it too!

I grew up watching, Scrooge (The Musical Christmas Carol), and I can't wait to introduce it to my little ones in a few years. Until then, White Christmas is our movie of choice.

We have a tradition of watching Christmas Vacation with our families on Thanksgiving night. The kids LOVE the crazy squirrel and the police coming in to "Here Comes Santa Claus."

The old Bing Crosby/Danny Kaye movie "White Christmas" has great music. A good activity for sibling rivalry at the holidays is for you and a sibling to learn the words to "Sisters" (sung by Rosemary Clooney and I forget who else in the film) and perform it for your family!

We enjoy videos from Nest Entertainment-(they have an online store) There is on called "A King is Born" that tells the Christmas Story.

We like the Santa Claus movies with Tim Allen.

My younger girls like the Max and Ruby Christmas videos.

We also enjoy most of the classics such as Miracle on 34th.

The Bells of St Mary's is my absolute all time favorite. The kids still enjoy the Home Alone movies.
