Your Christmas movie Top 10 list


New Member
I've seen a couple of similiar threads, but none where people actually rank them. So here goes, my Christmas Movie Top 10:

1. Elf
2. Arthur Christmas (I thought it was really good)
3. A Christmas Story
4. Christmas Vacation
5. Scrooged
6. Nightmare Before Christmas
7. Love Actually
8. Home Alone
9. A Christmas Carol (2009, Jim Carrey)
10. A Muppet Christmas Carol

Let the arguments for/against begin. I know there are a couple people will have a problem with, and I'm ready to discuss for or against any of them. What does your top 10 list look like?

Santa Claus is Coming to Town
Nightmare Before Christmas
Charlie Brown Christmas
Christmas Story
Christmas Vacation
How the Grinch Stole Christmas (not "The Grinch")
It's a Wonderful Life
Miracle on 34th Street

My list goes to "11".

Having got to watch both Die Hard and Trading Places at work in the last week (missed Rare Exports) and White Christmas screening coming soon this is a topic somewhat on mind; sure the above're somewhere in the mix, but I can't rank in terms of favorite to less so, ten times.

So in no particular order:

Die Hard
Trading Places
White Christmas
A Muppet Christmas Carol
Babes in Toyland
Christmas Carol (I know most prefer the '51 version, but my inner geek still enjoys the cast of the '84 TV version)
Rudolph (R/B)
Miracle on 34th Street ('47)
A Midnight Clear
