Every year, once Thanksgiving time hits, I have a playlist of movies and TV shows that the wife and I watch. A lot of these have turned into a tradition around here. Focus: What movies or TV episodes do you watch over the holidays? Are there movies that you watch every year? Alt-Focus: What Christmas movies do you hate, and why? Focus: Every year, I watch the following movies: --National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (while putting up our tree) --Scrooged --Love, Actually (with the wife, always results in me getting some) --Charlie Brown Christmas --The Simpsons Christmas Special --How the Grinch Stole Christmas (NOT the live Jim Carrey version) --Miracle on 34th Street (watch this while wrapping presents) --Christmas Story: I usually watch the entire thing, out of order, in various segments over the course of the marathon on Christmas Eve and Day. This one actually takes place in the town where my dad grew up, and they've taken me past the school it was based on and a lot of the locations the film was based around, so this is one I can watch over and over. My TV doesn't change from the marathon all day. Alt-Focus: I can't stand Its a Wonderful Life. I find it incredibly boring, and I've tried to watch it a few times. I just can't make it past the 3/4th mark. My wife said she can't stand Scrooged and that she "isn't a big Bill Murray fan." I'm still wondering about contacting a lawyer to see if that is grounds for a divorce.
