I imagine no one has the same favorite Christmas movie list in a particular order. A favorite movie for one person might be a least liked for another. That's what makes humans interesting, right?

I try to watch as many Christmas movies as I have time for, and some movies I skip a year for no particular reason. Funny through, no matter how many times I watch Christmas movies, the ending is always the same. Just once, I'd like to see a different ending (joking here, of course.)

Below, are eight of my favorite Christmas movies. Compare the list with your favorites. Are we on the same page, or is my list lame?

    The Santa Clause

    I own all three of these movies. There were three, right? Of course, my favorite of the three is the original, although the second wasn't bad. A bit silly, but that's ok. The third one with an evil Jack Frost was a bit over the top.

    The Grinch Who Stole Christmas

    There are a few of these out there, but my favorite is the one with Jim Carrey. He does the Grinch justice in my opinion, and his jokes and mannerisms just make me laugh every time, even though I've seen the movie dozens of times.

    Love Actually

    Yep, it's one of those movies you really like or really hate. I really like it. Sure it's full of sap and some storylines that may stretch it out a bit on the believable scale, but who cares. It has a lot of  feel good messages throughout the movie, and especially at the end.

    A Christmas Carol

    So many good ones. Which to pick as a favorite. I have no clear cut favorite, but vote for a few with amazing Ebenezer Scrooge's, including Alastair Sim, George C. Scott and of course, the Muppet Christmas Carol with Michael Caine.

    White Christmas

    Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney and Vera Ellen. A top notch cast, and a great movie, but no snow in Vermont? Yea, that's a rarity, but it all works out in the plot.

    Christmas Vacation

    From the opening, to the crazy ending, definitely a classic. Casting Chevy Chase was the right choice. But my favorite character? Randy Quaid's Cousin Eddie. C'mon, all of us who own RVs stick together like family. No matter how beat up it is.

    The Family Stone

    Never seen it? You should. It's a tearjerker with a 'A' list cast - Diane Keaton, Craig T. Nelson, Durmont, Mulroney, Rachel McAdams, Sarah Jessica Parker, Clair Danes and Luke Wilson.

    The Homecoming - A Christmas Story

    Yes, I know. It's a Walton's movie. It came out before the TV show was a thing (which was a huge hit during its run.) I grew up watching this movie every Christmas. It takes you back to the innocence of youth and the struggles of life during the depression. Again, another stellar cast including Patricia Neal and Richard Thomas. Watch it again. I won't judge you. It's available on DVD.
