Holiday movies that need to be on DVD . . .

1) A Child's Christmas In Wales - Originally a PBS special, I think. Very nice . . . kind of soft and soothing . . . good for a relaxing, snowy Christmas evening. Dylan Thomas remembers Christmas as a child in Wales (UK) . . . Almost an "old school" version of "A Christmas Story".

2) The Night They Saved Christmas - I think that this was originally a made for TV movie . . . very much a "feel good" holiday flick. Blanked for the kiddies . . .
Spoiler:
As a child, after having learned the truth about St. Nick, I remember this movie making me think that maybe my parents were wrong.
One of the more "magical" Christmas movies to have been made in a while . . . makes you feel like a kid again.

- and -

3) A Christmas Carol (George C. Scott) - I realize that this is already out on DVD, but ther needs to be an SE version of this story and since the GCS version is the best of them, why not do it with this one. There could be hours of historical info on Dickens, the history of the story, and the prominence of it in Christmas celebrations . . . Could be some good "making of" info and a opportunity for the actors to share memories of Christmas throughout their lives (would cover quite a time frame given their various ages) as well as their thoughts/memories of what "A Christmas Carol" has meant to them.

Damn Wal*Mart . . . they began selling singing and dancing Santas last month at the local one . . . for getting me excited about Christmas already!!!

I wouldn't mind having Rich Little's Christmas Carol on DVD.

Also Garfield's Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas specials.

That's the first (and actually, the only) one I thought of when I saw this thread. I've seen it so many times, I'd just have to buy it, for nostalgia's sake.

Where on earth is Vincente Minnelli's classic 1950's "Meet Me in St. Louis," with Judy Garland? It introduced the song "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas."
