it’s that time of year again when we start scouring the TV listings to make sure we don’t miss one of our Christmas viewing musts. I’ve already recorded Year Without a Santa Claus. I think Rudolph and Santa Claus is Coming to Town is on this week. It looks like It’s a Wonderful Life is only on Christmas Eve. I will have to keep track this year to see if there are any to add to the list.
There are certain shows and movies that I try to watch every year during the Christmas season. Today’s post 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
Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
Home Alone 2
National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
I guess that’s it. 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.
