Sure, Why Not?

Also I just realized that National Lampoon's Dorm Daze takes place during Christmas so there's another thing to watch.

I will be constantly updated my post #1, as of the end of 12/1/05 I've gotten in 4! I have a good feeling about this one! 12/2/05 I probably won't watch any or at least maybe one or two I've got other stuff to watch, but I'm totally on my way to 50 and beyond!

12/2 - Elf
12/3 - Pee Wee's Christmas Special

I've never seen these. Are they a complete separate special or a special of an all ready existing special? If it's a separate special then fine, but if it's a special from an existing series than no, unless it's longer than usual

12/5 : Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (MST3K version)
12/7 : Scrooged
12/8 : Die Hard
