Subject: Fav Christmas Special

Written By: Snoopygirl on 12/22/06 at 7:37 pm

Tops in my book is "A Charlie Brown Christmas". It isn't Christmas til I've seen that one.
Others are:

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
Year without a Santa Claus
Santa Claus is coming to town
A Wish for wings that work ( Too bad they don't show this one anymore )
Frosty the Snowman
The HOuse without a Christmas Tree ( Same with this one here )
Home Alone
National Lampoons Christmas Vacation
A Christmas Story

I love A Year Without a Santa Claus.  Also The Little Drummer Boy used to be one of my favorites, you just don't see it on T.V. very often anymore.

Actually, I like all of the Rankin-Bass Christmas Specials.

My favorite movie has to be It's a Wonderful Life.

I have still never seen  Home Alone, only because I have seen clips from the movie and it did not appeal to me.

no, you're not.

i preferred "baby's day out." at least it had the courage to be overtly ridiculous.

it's hard to keep up with the plot once the movie's gotten started, i find.

actually, i started watching voyage to the planet of prehistoric women halfway through today, and i caught up just fine.
