Re: Top Ten Favorite Christmas Movies To Own?

In order of awesomeness. . . dates are given when one version is markedly superior to remakes or is unknown to most people

Die Hard
It's a Wonderful Life
Scrooge (1951)
Christmas in Connecticut (1945)
White Christmas
A Christmas Story
Bad Santa
Miracle on 34th Street (1947 ONLY)
Holiday Affair (1949)
The Bishop's Wife (1947)

Honorable mention: a short subject, Star in the Night, a modern-day (well, 1945 modern-day) retelling of the Nativity story which never fails to melt my crusty heart and reduce me to a teary puddle. It can be found on the Christmas in Connecticut DVD
