What movie do you usually watch on any of the holidays, it can be any holiday but the movie must be one you watch consistently. I will start with,

Thanksgiving- Planes, Trains, and Automobiles
Christmas- National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

Christmas = A Christmas Carol - Original black & white version made in 1951 starring Alistair Sims as Scrooge. A classic that cannot be out done...........

Around Christmas:

Scrooge, the Christmas Carol story but in musical form. Yes, I know some of you will , BUT: this one starred a young Albert Finney as Scrooge and had a cast of amazing characters and good music to boot...I cry at the ending every time.

I thought Martin Landau's 1999 picture "The Joyriders" was a wonderful Christmas movie for the whole family. Only 277 people rated it on IMDB, but the dozen who commented on it all loved it, it was a beautifully charming film. Look for it.

The Sällskapsresan movies and the Jönssonligan movies.
They are usually shown around christmas time,even if they are not really christmas movies.
I like to watch them once or twice a year along with a few other comedies these people have made.

On a rainy day in the month of January, I watch Full Metal Jacket. Why? I have no idea, but that's a tradition of mine and I'm sticking with it, damned whether it makes sense or not because it's my life and I'll do as I please.
