We tend to watch all of these as Christmas approaches. However, my wife and I have decided to snuggle up with A Muppet Christmas on the 25th, and then spend some quiet time in front of the fireplace with some chocolates and some plum wine.
How does this movie list of my Holiday favorites compare to yours?
