Every year I go through my collection of Christmas movies and try to view my favorites. There are just some movies I must watch each year. The TV networks do the same thing.
Some stations like ABC Family will start playing movies on Dec 1st and run them all the way to Christmas. Other networks will have Christmas movie marathons all day on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
Here are my personal top 5 Christmas “Classics” (pre 1960’s)
Top 5 Classic Christmas Movies:
1) Its a Wonderful Life (1946)
2) A Miracle on 34th Street (1947)
3) White Christmas (1954)
4) A Christmas Carol (1951 w/ Alastair Sim)
5) Christmas in Connecticut (1945)
