Writer's Block: B.Y.O.B. Holidays

What is your must-see holiday movie? One random answer will win a $50 Amazon gift card. [Details here]

I love watching "It is a wonderful Life" with Mum and "Mrs. Santa Claus" with Sarah...

But the movie I have been watching the most is "Ivanhoe";)

For more than 20 years I have watched that movie, when I was taking down the Christmas tree and decorations on January 1st...It started as just a movie that was on tv somewhere that day, but over the years it became a "must see" that day...so far I have watched it on Danish,Norwegian and Swedish tv over the years, but I have watched it every year for more than 20 years;)

Ohhhh..and it is the version with Anthony Andrews as Ivanhoe;)

Ivanhoe used to be a must every Christmas! I haven't seen it in years.... Ivanhoe and "tre nøtter for Askepott" is what made Christmas for me. "Reisen til julestjernen" also - but I didn't mind so much if I missed that - but no way I could miss any of the other two when I was a kid!

It is funny with traditions like that, there are some things that just belongs on Christmas..
I always watched Disneys Christmas show on TV with Mum and Dad and siblings, but that died out years back....My Dad loved the Disney show;)

I do that too! I have missed it on a few occassions owing to heinous hangovers but those are not many.
Fact of life : one cannot live without Anthony Andrews on the first day of the year.
Before Christmas I have for the last say ten years watched National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. Whatever happens during my own X-mas, nothing can get any worse than in theirs.

"Fact of life : one cannot live without Anthony Andrews on the first day of the year."
Soooooo true;) It is so funny that I am not the only one watching that movie on the first day of the year;)

"National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation", is great too, and I´ll see if I can catch it on TV somewhere over the next week.
That and "Home Alone" is always on here;)
