What are some good DVD's to watch on Christmas day? They don't necessarily have to be X-mas related, but just good fair to watch after all the festivities. Besides such fav's as "It's A Wonderful Life" and "A Christmas Story". Just some ideas would be most appreciated. Merry Christmas!

Well, Christmas is all about family, so either The Godfather or a Sopranos marathon...

Miracle on 34th Street usually gets me weepy.

You can also watch the Yule Log DVD.

I usually get through Die Hard 1 & 2 on the 24th and I try to fit in A Christmas Story if I have the time on the 25th.

Home For The Holidays is a pretty good, underrated film if your'e looking for something that's not specifically Christmas related. It takes place at Thanksgiving, but it still has that general holiday vibe to it.

Haha. Salo gets me too 'sexed-up' to be around my family.

I often just watch whatever I get.

We've had a tradition for the last 13 years. We gotta watch Oh did you know these Christmas Vacation factoids------"Rusty is younger than Audrey in this film. In the other three Vacation films, Rusty is always the older brother." AND "It's the only film in the series not to feature the signature theme song, "Holiday Road", by Lindsey Buckingham." Merry Christmas to all, and to all a goodnight!

Even though it takes place around Thanksgiving, Planes, Trains, and Automobiles has a Christmas feel to it
