Why am I such a misfit?

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is my favorite Christmas show. I watch it every year and last night I guilted my kids into watching it with me. We sang along to the songs and laughed at the lines, "And we won't let Rudolph join in any reindeer games" and "This is man's work."

Good times.

What's your favorite Christmas show? I have to say I'm also partial to The Year without a Santa Claus, but that's mostly for the snow and heat miser scenes.

The year without a Santa Claus is Monster Baby's favorite too. She sang that song well into Feb. last year.

My favorite christmas show is the movie: A Christmas Story.

Colene Murphy said...

Christmas Vacation or Elf would be my favs. Or The Santa Clause...too many good ones!

Melissa Marsh said...

I love Rudolph, too! We haven't watched it yet, but we will this week sometime.

A Charlie Brown Christmas is also a classic. :-)

I love the musicals Scrooge and White Christmas. But as a kid I couldn't get enough of A Year w/o a Santa. =)

We watch the Christmas specials every year - the old and the new. And the heat and cold miser solos are my fav!

Susan R. Mills said...

I'm with Paul. I loved A Christmas Story. We watch every year.

Christopher and I watch Rudolph, The Year Without a Santa Claus, Frosty, Grandma Got Ran Over By a Reindeer and all the others. Every year. Tradition. Heat miser is COOL.

Rudolph is a classic. We'll be watching a lot of those classics over the next couple weeks. I especially enjoy the musical ones.

Ahhh yes...24 hours of a Christmas Story MUST be on.

"Santa Claus Conquers the Martians"

I think we own this on video, except out VCR doesn't work anymore. :)

Kristen Torres-Toro said...

I'm not much for Christmas movies... so I'll name the Polar Express. That one was really cool!

Timmy's Gift by Precious Moments is the sweetest! I picked up the video from Avon 15 years ago and we still watch it on Christmas Eve every year!

This show looks wonderful. I must confess to being partial to the film A Muppets Christmas Carol though I also like Elf.

Dara said...

I too like Timmy's Gift. We recorded it off the TV and my parents recently transferred that one and some others to DVD. I also like The Little Drummer Boy and the Wish that Changed Christmas.

Carol Riggs said...

As a kid, I ALWAYS had to watch Rudolph. I also like the Charlie Brown Christmas. ;o)

Not a huge fan of Christmas shows, so I can't give you my fav. Something about all that snow while we are on the other side of the world seating it out- unfair :)
