The holidays don't feel like the holidays for most people unless they see their favorite holiday movies. I have a handful of movies that I watch every year during the Christmas season.

My personal favorites include 'Christmas Vacation', 'A Christmas Story', 'Charlie Brown Christmas', and my personal favorite, 'It's a Wonderful Life'.

As corny as 'It's a Wonderful Life' may seem to some people, I like it because it reminds me that we are all here to help each other, and if everyone just looked out for each other we all would have a wonderful life. I love the movie so much that next Friday my wife Chris and I are heading up to Seneca Falls to check out the It's a Wonderful Life Festival.

'A Christmas Story' is the story about a boy named Ralph who wants a B.B. gun for Christmas. Every Christmas Eve into Christmas Day, the cable channel TBS runs a 24-hour marathon of Nothing But 'A Christmas Story'.

'Elf' staring Will Ferrell finished second, followed by 'Home Alone' and It's a 'Wonderful Life'.

According to the results, 'A Christmas Story' is the favorite holiday movie for New Yorkers, and 'Elf' was the holiday movie of choice for Pennsylvanians.
