Okay, here's one for you. What's your favorite Christmas movie or television show or special? If I mention my favorites, will you promise not to judge me? Yea, I didn't think you would.

Actually, it's a tough choice for me, but I would probably say the movie 'A Christmas Carol' starring Alastair Sim. It's my favorite adaptation of Charles Dickens's novel. I also like the version with George C. Scott and of course the Muppet Christmas Carol.

As for a Christmas television special, I'd have to say 'A Charlie Brown Christmas.' I've been watching that every year since I was a child, and believe me, that's a long time. You know you've been watching a show for a long time when you can recite most or all the lines in the show.

I asked on social media, 'What is your favorite Christmas movie or television show or special?' It was interesting to see the varied answers. Here's what the Southern Tier and Northern PA are watching:
