    I like the movie “Elf.” Geesh…I had forgotten about our Netflix subscription. I need to start using it, especially since most of the shows I like will be on a hiatus.

    National Lampoons Christmas Vacation is the one I have to watch every year. I can quote most of the movie and still laugh the entire way through it.

    I’m a fan of the 3D version of The Christmas Carol that was animated and Jim Carey voices. I also really like Home Alone 😉
