    What are you guys watching this holiday season?

    I've been waiting until December 1 to start my festive viewings, but my roommates and I have decided to cave tonight and watch the 1966 Grinch special and the Jim Carrey Grinch. Then I'm starting tomorrow with Moral Oral over breakfast, and from there, it's Christmas all month sirs.

    I think Elf is going to be the one I start December with tomorrow evening. Last year, my roommate and I decided we would watch it every night before bed. We made it until December 4th. It didn't stop being fantastic, but there were other movies that needed some love

    My wife was out of town today so I had a quiet evening alone as I sifted through some old specials I used to watch as a kid. I watched the Hey Arnold Christmas special. It's been kind of an emotional year. I cried.

    I was about to watch that for the first time yesterday morning, but it was 20 minutes and I only had time for a 10 minute show. It's worth checking out?

    Oh yes. One of those underrated specials that manages to hold up really well. Given current events, it also feels very timely.

    I can't stand most Christmas specials and Christmas movies, so if I do watch Christmas films it's either something like Die Hard or one of Shane Black's films, or something like The Night Before (which was actually surprisingly pretty good last year!). The only straight-up Christmas movies generally considered "classics" that I enjoy are Christmas Vacation and Elf.

    The Nightmare Before Christmas is too caught in two worlds (much like it's main character, heh heh) for me to fully be a Christmas film.

    Night Before isn't on any streaming sites (Netflix, Amazon, etc.), right?

    I don't believe so but it was definitely worth checking out.

    Watched Elf last night and was immediately reminded why it's a modern Christmas classic. The performances, the sets, the story, everything about it is so fantastic. Definitely my favourite Christmas movie to come out since - what - Home Alone? (Though I think after a few rewatches, Arthur Christmas might climb up there, which I just watched for the first time the other night)

    Need to get in Christmas Vacation, a Christmas Horror Story, Silent Night Deadly Night 1-3 and the reboot, Elf, and Home Alone which is somehow missing from my collection

    you're in a cult, call your dad

    I love cheesy family Christmas movies. My personal tradition is to just sit and play 3DS or something while watching. This year I've gotten through The Santa Clause 1 and 2, I'll Be Home for Christmas, Jingle All the Way, and the classics, Rudolph and Frosty. Saving Elf to watch with my little sister and then Christmas Vacation/A Christmas Story for family watching on Christmas Eve. I'm a sucker for holiday traditions and I'm pretty convinced I'll do the exact same things every year until I die.
