Movie:
'Surviving Christmas' with the website's mascot has been the movie we pop into the DVD
player in late December.No I didn't actually spend money on it-I accquired it.
All the rest are on TV on one time or another anyway.
I know it got bad reviews but it makes our family feel so normal after watching it.
Music:
'The 12 days of Christmas' by Bob and Doug Mackenzie. Buy the whole CD if you find it good luck and follow it up with a viewing of 'Strange Brew'.

However, to tell you of a Xmas tradition in our house -while others are watching It's a Wonderful Life and the Christmas Story, in our house we have the Xmas eve "fighting movie" where we gather to watch a good action film. Started with Gladiator and last years was Taken with Liam Neeson. But tell people you are hurrying home on Xmas Eve to watch the Xmas eve fighting movie and you get quite a few funny looks.

Scrooged with Bill Murray. The end always makes me cry. I watch it every Christmas Eve with a glass of wine.

Stop the Cavalry by Jona Lewie. It reminds me of my dad being at sea and coming home for christmas.

RocketQueen said...

LOVE IheartJackSparrow's choices - Nightmare before Xmas and "What's This?" from the same movie. So to be different I'll say:

1. Bad Santa/Elf
2. Feliz Navidad (puts me in the BEST cheery mood, for some reason)

white lorelei said...

... actually, there's another song that (mercifully) I don't hear played to death anymore that has a lot of meaning to me, because I lived alone and far away from any family for years and only came home at Christmas (if I could afford to come home at all), so I also ran into old friends from school then, too.

It's called Same Old Lang Syne by Dan Fogelberg. I totally related to that song and it still gets me when I hear it. Transports me.

HookedOnCDAN said...

Movie: Christmas Story

Song: When I was kid, the choir in the church I attended would sing the song "Peace, Peace" (peace on earth and good will to all, this is the time for hope, this is a time for joy, now let us all sing together of peace, peace, peace on earth...) and at the same time the congregation would sing Silent Night. The two songs together would make me cry every time, and every single time I tell someone about this (even right now) I find myself choked up and tearing up.

As for music...I honestly cannot think of one Christmas song that doesn't make me want to stab myself in the ears repeatedly. Yep, I'm a Grinch to the extreme!

@ Miss Oh yeah, the "road" movies are very funny.

lol @ Tenisha: I say the same thing "white christmas, with bing, rosemary, danny and that other chick" Good, but I cannot ever remember her name to save my life.

Oh, and people laughed at me because when I moved to MN and had my first white christmas, I just kept saying "I feel like I am in a movie" It is just so awesome!

Tara said...

A TV Movie from the 70's called The Gathering with Ed Asner

Have yourself a merry little christmas- in the film Meet Me in St Louis - where little Tootie goes down in the snow after Judy sings the song to her and kills all the snow people.

I cannot hear the song 12 Days of Christmas without thinking about Eddie Izzard talking about it-

FIVE GOLD RINGS (always sang really really loud, all other lyrics mumbled)

"12 monkeys mating, 11 donkeys dancing, 10 pygmies farming, 9 socks a-swimming, 5 gold rings..." on Dressed to Kill

swedishfish said...

ELF (I can't help it) and a tie between "We Need a Little Christmas" and "It's the Most wonderful Time of the Year." My mom bought a record ("That Christmas Feeling") at JCPenney when I was 3 and I still listen to it.

chihuahuense said...

what? It isn't Christmas without a little Handel. And I believe that the parts referring to the resurrection are saved for only Easter performances

selenakyle said...

Good ones!

1) Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas, with Year Without A Santa Clause running a close second.

2) What Child Is This sung by anyone, and anything sung by the MTC.

"It's a Wonderful Life". Fave movie, no matter what the season.

"Fairytale of New York" by the Pogues. How can you compete with a classic holiday line like "you scumbag, you maggot, you cheap lousy faggot--happy Christmas your arse, I pray God it's our last"? Always gives me the warm and fuzzies.

We traditionally watch an Esther Williams movie on Christmas

And, no contest, Christmas Wrapping.

Cindy said...

Movie: Old School is a tie between We're No Angels (Bogart, Ustinov and Aldo Ray -- amazing!) and The Bishop's Wife (Cary Grant, David Niven) NOT to be confused with that garbage that Whitney Houston put out - blech

Newer Movie - Love Actually cannot be topped.

Song: Carol for Another Christmas -- Henry Mancini and Sting's Gabriel's Message is haunts me throughout the year, not just at Christmas.

Song- Too many to choose! O Holy Night sung by Mariah Carey or The Christmas Song sung by Frank Sinatra. And of course, White Christmas for sentimental reasons.

I also loooove the song Skating by Vince Guaraldi Trio its the song that comes on when Snoopy is ice skating.

Any of the classics, including TV shows like Charlie Brown and the original Grinch.

Any of the classics, from the Nutcracker music to "Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer" and "Your a Mean One Mr. Grinch". (I love the line "You've Got Garlic in Your Soul".)

1. "Love Actually" and "A Christmas Story"

2. "Blue Christmas" sung by Porky Pig

thatsomeoneisme said...

Another great Christmas tune is "Christmas Time is Here," as heard in the excellent "Charlie Brown's Christmas. Both always make me sentimental and weepy, in a good way.

thatsomeoneisme said...

Oooh! One more song: "Please come home for Christmas" an old school song sung by Charles Brown.

It was re done by the Eagles, but that newer version paled in comparison.

Whenever I hear the bells that begin that song, I get chills. It's a soulful Christmas tune.

#1 A Christmas Story

#2 The Christmas Song by Alvin & the Chipmunks. No, seriously, it really puts me in a holiday mood. :)

@Ms. Cool - TOTALLY!!! I love that movie!!!

So since that is taken .. "The Lion in Winter" .. O'Toole, Hepburn, Hopkins and Dalton .. freakin' amazing dialogue .. it's not traditional holiday fare .. but it is amazing none the less.

And Favorite song .. "Do You Hear What I Hear" .. by Bing Crosby .. which I was just SHOCKED to learn was written during the Cuban Missile Crisis and was recorded by Bing the day JFK was assassinated in Dallas ... : /

I deleted my post about the best Christmas song for folks not into Christmas songs .. I had posted Hollywood Undead's "Christmas in Hollywood" .. but I fear what you guy would think of me!! LOL!! Many bad words and often questionable materials sung about in there! But .. it is on You Tube if you would like to subject yourself to questionable holiday material!

But then I thought about Jon La Joie's "Cold Blooded Christmas" .. still questionable and some bad language but funny as hell. When I saw it for the first time last year I damn near wet my pants laughing!

Merry Christmas Christmas and Christmas Song Dislikers!! Hope you like one of these!! ; )

I don't know about "favorite," but...

1. Movie, with kids watching: Emmet Otter OR Any of the Fraggle Rock "Christmas" episodes. Heck, anything pre-death Jim Henson will do.

2. Movie, without kids: Die Hard 1. It has action, has the slightest hint of "blink-and-you'll-miss-it" nudity & is also Christmas-themed.

3. Songs: Christmas Disco music (especially "What I Want For Christmas" from Christmas Disco Party - Close your eyes & the cheesy 1970's variety hour sets practically make themselves).

A Christmas Story for movie. Nothing else even comes close.

And as I hate all Christmas music, I'll choose the Christmas baby lament, "It Sucks to be Born Around Christmas".
