Christmas Eve Movie Suggestions?
« on: December 22, 2005, 12:03:04 pm »
We have a tradition of watching a movie as a family on xmas eve.
This year we are stuck for a selection. 
When the kids were little they loved The Muppets Christmas Carol.
We've done the classics - Wonderful Life & Miracle
We've done Christmas Vacation, Scrooged (my fav), & Christmas Story (this is out because son had an incident with a paintball gun this past year.  ::) ).

Daughter is 16, Son is 14......and I'm....old enough to be their mom....and hubby is ancient (hehehehe....he's older than me and I don't let him forget it)

So....what's your favorite holiday movie? 
What's a suggestion for our family?
If you really like something that we've already seen suggest it anyway.  We've done repeats before.

Merry Christmas.

NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS.. its awesome. (thats where Zero got his name, and his halloween costume, from the bonus parts on that movie) ha ha

Anyways, good luck with the movie u chose... Merry Xmas

My fav is definitely Scrooged as well (but) every Christmas Eve (even if we're busy visiting with family, etc.) I try to watch the original "Christmas Carol".  Yes - the black and white one - but I love it.  It is a really good movie...

My whole family really likes The Santa Clause, with Tim Allen.  It's really a cute movie, and it has a good family story to it.  There's also a Santa Clause 2.  If you've never seen them, I'd really recommend them.  You can never go wrong with Christmas Vacation either, the kids are at that age where they'll really laugh.  Hope that helps.

Every year on Christmas Eve, I open a bottle of wine, put up the tree while the following ids playing:
'How the Grinch Stole Christmas' (original)
'Charlie Brown Christmas'
'Nightmare before Christmas'
It's my annual tradition... goofy, I know, but it's fun and I've been doing it for years.

Looks like NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS is the winner. 
Trying to pick a movie for 2 teens IS a nightmare.
This movie made both of them say, "Oh good...that's not lame."

Thanks for helping to make my Christmas eve "not lame".    :)

Merry Christmas everyone!!

My vote is for National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.  It's a traditon in my family...but we're kind of weird!
