10. A Muppet Christmas Carol
"Mother always taught me: "Never eat singing food."
9. Home Alone
"Kevin, you're such a disease."
8. Santa Claus Conquers the Martians
Because sci-fi Santas are the best kind of Santas.
7. Black Christmas
Sorority sisters getting murdered. That's cheery, right?
6. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
"Hallelujah! Holy sh*t! Where's the Tylenol?"
5. The Nightmare Before Christmas
Some would argue this is actually a Halloween film, but I disagree.
Bill Murray, enough said.
3. Love, Actually
I once visited Darfur and was completely heartbroken by the horrors there. Looking for a way to distract myself for an hour or two, I decided to watch the one movie lying around a television in the building we stayed in. It was Love, Actually - and it restored my faith in humanity.
2. A Charlie Brown Christmas
For the orange shirt kid's dance.
1. Die Hard
If the Nakatomi Towers don't scream Christmas to you, I don't know what will.
Side note: Now, if you're looking for a fun holiday activity to do with the family, you've got lots of options in the Toronto area. Outdoor skating rinks, etc. But the one thing I'm really excited for is seeing How The Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical. It's playing at The Sony Centre Dec. 17th - 30th.
Leave your favourite holiday movie in the comments... I like to hear what you have to say.
