Favourite Christmas Movie

 



Meh.

None of the above? Christmas to me now is just some time with the wife and some good food, and maybe a hat tip to my Maker. It's nothing like it used to be and I don't know if I miss it or not. The asshole relatives, the bills, the hangovers and nausea? I think I am glad to be done with it to be honest. There was something deeply wrong with Christmas and the nonsense that went with it and I didn't realize it until I was able to step away from it.

This year maybe we'll go somewhere with the dawgs, maybe a walk out in the woods. We can't go far because Macey is infirm... but we should get her out into the trees one last time at least? I will figure something out. 

Won't be giving Hollywood or Hallmark the time of day... that's all I know for sure.

  1. Same here Filthie... It is truly the silly season. I would rather share a good dinner, good friends and family. I don't put up any Christmas decorations, in fact any decorations for any Hallmark Holiday. We, as a society have gotten away from the meanings and traditions of a holiday, only to line the pockets of stores and bankers, that is why all have been commercialized. Oh and one of the times I make a proper Thank You to my Maker.

  3. Elf, #3. Such a great story line and Will F. did such a great job as being an innocent and naive product of the North Pole. The movie amuses me and makes me laugh every time I watch it.

  4. Scrooge with Alistar Sim. I watch it every Christmas eve for years and years. When he comes to the line in his nephew's house and says to his nephew's wife "Can you forgive a pigheaded old fool for having no eyes to see with and no ears to hear with, all these years"
    I always tear up.
    If I was to choose from the above pix, It would have to be "It's a wonderful life" over "Miracle on 34st street". It's a toss up but I have to give an extra point to "wonderful" because I think Donna Reed is a better looking babe than Maureen O'hara

  9. The best thing that happened to our family (6 kids) was when we all decided no more gift exchange. We were in our twentys and didn't always have extra money at Christmas. We all still got together at Mom and Dads and had a party and she put out a spread of food. We all laughed and joked and enjoyed each others company and loved on Mom and Dad. Good times,Allan

  10. I like IAWL, I relate to George probably too much. But that Donna Reed, and Violet Bick, ooo lah lah! 5, 12, then 6 and 11.

    I think one or two are public domain now. You can find them on oytub, or somesuch.
