People have strong opinions about Christmas movies. I know one person who told me he was thinking of breaking up with his girlfriend when he found out she didn't like the movie, "A Christmas Story." They broke up not too much later. He never told me if that was why, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was a factor.
Part of the reason we feel so close to these movies, I suppose, is because they're attached to Christmas memories and traditions. We watch them every year with our families and friends, and start to develop the attitude of, "if you don't like that movie, you won't fit in with my family or our Christmas traditions. So get out! Am-scray!!"
Things took a surprisingly bad turn there. Maybe some of that is just thought, not said. (I hope.)
So without further ado, these are my favorite Christmas movies. If you don't like all of them, that's fine. I won't break up with you or kick you to the curb. Ok, that's not totally true. You have to like 5 out of 10 at least. Exceptions will be made for non-Christians and cute guys.
Best Christmas Movies (in order):

Christmas movies I do not like:
*ANY that are done with claymation. I abhor claymation.
*Miracle on 34th street - I know things work out in the end, but it's too sad throughout. It's just... I can't. I just can't. It hurts my heart to see Santa so mistreated.
What are your favorites? What are your least favorites? Why?
