    I LOVE Christmas Story. It SO MUCH reminds me of growing up. I also always wanted a BB gun and had to push and beg and plead until I finally got it. (and I think only because the alternative would have been to get me a drum set. My parents probably felt that I could only hurt myself with a BB gun but the torture I could inflict with a drumset was immeasurable).

    I also love how TBS or TNT will play the movie for 24 hours straight. Nothing like being half in the bag and waking up at 3:00 with a buzz on and seeing little Ralphy eating soap. LOL

    Daddio, I always wondered it the workers at TNT only did that so they could have the movie on automatic replay so they could enjoy their holiday cheer.

    Could very well be eldee. There is a local station here in Chicago that plays an upclose image of a fireplace burning for 24 hours at Christmas. Everyone gets a day off.

    It fills up your whole screen and makes your TV set look like a fireplace. Its great for people that dont have a fireplace. You can record it and then pop it in when that "special someone" comes by for a visit and you want to set a romantic tone. Or when you just want to curl up in front of a "fire" with a cup of tea and a good book.

    You just have to turn down the volume though as they play Christmas Carols the whole 24 hours as well. (except at Christmas time of course when you would leave the sound up).

    I think they do that on WPIX or another station in NY. That allows time for the execs. to chase their secretaries and the higher ups to get plastered while their secretaries are going through the files for blackmail material. Great traditional office holiday fun.

    I also like movies that aren't Christmas movies but, have a Christmas scene or party in them:

    Desk Set (champagne for everyone).
    I can't quite remember the name but, I believe it is Fanny and Alexader (the on stage party after the performance).
    The family Christmas dinner in Sleepless in Seattle.

    A Christmas Story

    We watch it every year while we put up the decorations on the Sunday after Thanksgiving. Great, great movie.

    Miracle on 34th Street (the original) is my favorite along with National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. I beg to differ with those of you going with A Christmas Story. I think I've seen it maybe three times which to me was two times to many. I suppose it could just be a reaction to the over kill by TNT cause it's not a bad movie, just one I'm not big on.
