What is your favorite Christmas story, movie, play, poem, television show, or whatever? I love It's a Wonderful Life, almost any Santa story, A Christmas Carol, .

Spill, what's yours?

    Hard to say, I like them all. Maybe Miracle on 34th Street? Like the animated one with Berrel Ives also.

    I love both of those!

    Mary, I love the poem Twas the Night Before Christmas. Every time I hear it, I'm transported back to my childhood.

    The Christmas Carol film with George C Scott is a favorite of mine.

    We bought the recordable book of "Twas the Night Before Christmas" for our grandchildren and I realized how nice it was to hear it again! And Charlie Brown's Christmas, so predictable, so cute... Guess I like most everything of the classics about this time of year...

    Miracle on 34th St would be mine!

  7. Mary Marvella // November 28, 2011 at 2:57 PM  

    Me, too Pam, I never memorized it, but I remember the beginning lines!

  8. Mary Marvella // November 28, 2011 at 2:57 PM  

    Beth, I can still watch that one AGAIN!

  9. Mary Marvella // November 28, 2011 at 2:59 PM  

    Judy, my daughter had to watch "Charlie Brown" anything. I can still hear the jingle for it.

  10. Mary Marvella // November 28, 2011 at 2:59 PM  

    Mary R, do you still cry at the heart warming moments? I do.

    Hmm. I really love Benjamin Britten's "A Ceremony of Carols." Probably not a real answer to your question, though...

    It's National Lampoon Christmas Vacation. It cracks me up and reminds me of my family. Just sayin'

  13. Mary Marvella // November 28, 2011 at 9:51 PM  

    Barbara, it's a fine answer. I wanted a variety of answers.

  14. Mary Marvella // November 29, 2011 at 12:35 AM  

    Hildie, the funny ones help after the sad ones. Can you say Chevvy Chase? What about Home Alone?

  15. Jamie Lee Scott // November 29, 2011 at 6:01 PM  

    I'm going with A Christmas Story, since it was a cult classic when I was in college and we all made sure to watch before we left for vacation. "You'll shoot your eye out." hahaha

    Hi MM,
    Wow--my favorite Christmas film is hard to say. Miracle on 34th Street is definitely a favorite, and my son brings over the Chevy Chase Christmas movie every year to watch, also.
