Christmas Viewing Musts

There are certain shows and movies that I try to watch every year during the Christmas season. Today’s post in the month of Tater is just a list of these in order of importance:

Santa Claus is Coming to Town

The Year Without a Santa Claus


It’s a Wonderful Life

Miracle on 34th Street

A Christmas Story(I will also try to watch the live one this year as well)

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

Home Alone

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

I guess that’s it. I actually already watched Elf and Christmas Vacation last night and Santa Claus is Coming to Town is on tonight.  I don’t really care about Frosty, the Grinch or Charlie Brown. I’m sure they are all pretty high on other people’s lists.  I do consider Die Hard a Christmas movie, but I would watch that any time of the year, so it is not on this list. I will also watch other random Christmas shows if they are on, but I don’t feel like I’ve missed out if I don’t watch them.

Feel free to argue with my list and call me stupid in the comments.

    We always watch the Muppet Christmas Carol. It’s John’s required Christmas viewing. And Gremlins.
    Maybe The Nightmare Before Christmas. I do love Home Alone and Home Alone 2 (the second more so because of the NYC setting!), but we don’t watch them every year. I kinda want to add Krampus, too, because it was surprisingly good and we like the effects.

    The first time it snows/we have a snow day I make John sit through 30 Days of Night again, and usually we watch The Thing (but I don’t have to make him watch that one).

      I guess I should admit that I’m not a fan of the Muppets..
