Favorite Christmas Show?

It is that time of year, name your favorite christmas show! For me it is a tie between two very different titles. I enjoy Scrooged and also Christmas in Connecticut (1944 I think). What is your favorite?

Walking in the back yard in the softly falling snow, watching the birds flutter around the feeders, and the Rat Terrier conducting Squirrel Deterrence Patrol operations. And quietly singing "Silent Night" to myself. In the original German. (Stille Nacht)

Toss up between Charlie Brown Christmas and It's a Wonderful Life. How the Grinch Stole Christmas (the original cartoon version) is pretty good, too!

I'm still partial to "Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer" the Island of Misfit Toys version. Also
"Christmas Story" with Ralphie and his Red Ryder BB gun.

"It's a Wonderful Life" is probably my all time favorite. I view that one almost every Christmas season.

Gotta go with the Charlie Brown Christmas...
Followed by Frosty the Snowman, and the Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer clay-mation specials.

"A Christmas Carol" of course.
The one from 1951 with Alastair Sim.

New versions just don't cut it.

Even though I'm not at all religious, I really like Charlie Brown because it's one of the few shows that actually mentions what it's all about. That's probably why I like the Grinch too. It's the message that it conveys.

I also like A Christmas Story, and the George C. Scott version of A Christmas Carol.

Kid across the street played Ralphie in the Actor's Theater production of Christmas Story this year (23 shows!) so we enjoyed the stage production of that.

Our Christmas season usually starts with the Muppet Christmas Carol followed by various other versions during the season. Wife will also watch Miracle and Wonderful Life a few times too.
