    Default Weekly Poll: What is your favorite seasonal movie of all time?

    I'm sick. Quite sick, in fact. If there were audio for this post it would be me whining about how doggone sick I am. All I really want to do is lay on the couch and watch holiday movies. Not that I have let myself get to that point yet, but it's what I WANT to do. I have definitely already worked my way through my top three, though. Which for me are...

    1) Love Actually
    Prime Minister: I'm very jealous of your plane, by the way.
    The President: Oh, thank you. We love that thing, I'll tell ya.

    2) A Christmas Story (oh, and this is a huge point of contention between myself and pandahoneybee who happens to hate this movie with all her being, so feel free to send her leg lamp holiday cards, won't you??)
    Ralphie as Adult: [narrating] Over the years I got to be quite a connoisseur of soap. My personal preference was for Lux, but I found Palmolive had a nice, piquant after-dinner flavor - heady, but with just a touch of mellow smoothness. Life Buoy, on the other hand...

    3) Elf
    Buddy: Actually, I'm a human, but I was raised by elves.
    Carolyn: I'm a human... raised by humans.
    Buddy: Cool.

    So, it's time to poll all of us SHS'ers. I just know there is probably a "write-in" flick that will surprise the heck out of me so I'm really looking forward to reading your answers on this one. In the meantime, I hope it doesn't take bronchitis and a sinus infection for YOU to find time to screen all your faves this year!!

    Other: The Year Without a Santa Claus , with the Heat Miser and the Snow Miser included. I remember it as a kid, and one year when they were toddlers, my kids insisted on watching it almost every DAY from July to Christmas.

    Second place is Charlie Brown Christmas with A Christmas Story third.

    I'm a sucker for all things Frank Capra.

    Love, Actually is so assembled, but I'll admit that I like it a lot as well.

    Charlie Brown Christmas, all the way. Snoopy in the Christmas pageant always cracks me up.

    Scrooged, with Bill Murray. It's funny, over the top, and still has that 'feel good' bit at the end without Santa bringing gifts, and isn't "Jesus is the reason for the season".

    Other! On the "kid" side of things, I love Santa Claus: the Movie and on the adult rom-com side, I think Serendipity it just overlooked too often.

    For an adult only Christmas movie, probably Love Actually.

    For family-friendly is a tie: How the Grinch Stole Christmas - the old, animated one with Boris Karloff
    A Christmas Carol - multiple versions of it, but the Patrick Stewart one may be my fave of all the versions I've seen
    Miracle on 34th Street - the old, black & white one

    National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation is dh's favorite Christmas movie.
