I have to go with 1)A Christmas Story
                           2)Miracle on 34th Street (original), The Bishop's Wife, It's a Wonderful Life  (tie)
                           3)Christmas Vacation

 I find I can watch Christmas Story time after time and it is alway hilarious even if you know what's coming up next, the 3 tied for the #2 spot because I am a sucker for sappy movies with a morale about life as it should be. And finally Christmas Vacation because I find Chevy Chase and Randy Quaid never fail to make me laugh.

I voted for A Christmas Story.

I would've voted for The Polar Express if it hadn't had that underlying creepiness to it.

Ozzymandias speaks: MY Top five would be: Christmas Story, Santa Claus Conquers the Martians, Christmas Vacation, White Christmas and March Of the Wooden Soldiers (I hate to say it - but I prefer the colorized version of this).

Also the MST3K version of K. Gordon Murray's Santa Claus.

Ozzymandias has spoken!!!

No doubt A CHRISTMAS STORY is the most fun of Christmas film, but from the list I picked IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE.

MARCH OF THE WOODEN SOLDIERS is a classic Christmas time film.

I added them to the list along with March of the Wooden Soldiers, I  don't think that the first 3 reflect the Christmas spirit but they are Christmas movies.

Thanks Scott, I had forgotten about these 2 films, I've proably forgotten more, it seems there are a lot of Christmas movies, this list could be endless.

Although your list is lacking a little on Christmas movies, especially horror movies (heh, heh), my favorites from the list would be It's a Wonderful Life, Scrooge, and, oddly enough, Christmas Vacation (the first time I saw this movie, I didn't care for it that much, but it really grows on you after a few viewings); and it would be in that order.

There was more than one remake of Miracle on 34th Street. There was a version in the early 70s which starred Sebastion Cabot (Mr. French on Family Affair).

What about the remake of It's a Wonderful Life? Didn't care for it myself, but there has to be a fan out there somewhere.

I chose 'Santa Clause Conquers The Martians'. I watched it a few times and it becomes as popular in my DVD as "Home Alone" in TV [In Poland they play this and "Alone In New York" every X-mass]. Besides this I enjoyed "It's a Wonderful Life"

BTW. Hello everyone. Cheers from Poland

Welcome aboard Shaggs.  Hmm, I wonder if "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians" is one I could show Jenna and Andy yet.  I haven't put it in for my yearly viewing yet.

Ive added some more to the list, it's like the list has started growing uncontrollably, I'm sure that I've left out many.
I didn't even know there was a third Miracle on 34th Street movie, and I forgot about the remake of It's a Wonderful Life, the one starring Marlo Thomas is the one I'm thinking of, made for TV movie I believe.
There sure are lot of Christmas movies out there, one of the things I would like to see is more of the Christmas Spirit in our day to day lives throughout the year and with that in mind I wish all of you a merry Christmas and a Happy New Year with your families, friends and all the people you love, and as Red Skelton would say "Good Night and God Bless"
