    For a laugh you can beat Elf, Four Christmases, A Christmas Story and Jingle all the Way(i think that is the name of the movie with Arnold trying to get "the toy" for his son

    I like Holiday Inn better than White Christmas (it introduces the White Christmas song) as my classic favorite.
    Favorite chick flick: The Holiday
    Favorite parent movie: Jingle all the Way
    Favorite when the kids were little: Home Alone
    I don't know what category Elf is in but it's one of the best!

    From childhood: Rudolph, Frosty, Twas the Night Before Christmas (the clock)...and I'll throw in Home Alone and Prancer, too. The first three, however, were required at Christmas.

    Ms. I...... Ladies can ask guys too! I know it's not as common. I was the one who chose my husband from an online dating site and took things slowly and eventually asked him if he wanted to be in a commited relationship/go out...so it's kind of the same but it's up to you and him of course. I just wouldn't want to still be dating for that long without a more committed status if that makes sense in a nice way so you can feel that much more settled in life if he agrees of course!

    Christmas in Connecticut. My hands down favorite. Uncle Felix is probably the funniest character in the entire 1940's.

    It's a Wonderful Life is my favorite movie off tall-time, though. :)

    Scrooged is one of my all-time favorites. Not always a Bill Murray fan but love him in that movie.

    It's a Wonderful Life is one of those that as many times as I've seen it (and I know how it's going to end)-it always makes me cry.

    I also just adore Love Actually-that scene where he asks her to marry him in butchered Portuguese--:wub:.
