I tried out a new holiday film already this year: The Tsarina's Slippers, a Russian opera composed by Tchaikovsky and performed live at London's Royal Opera House. I like the opera, especially the Cossack dancing scene in Act 3, but my top dozen Christmas films (including one from every decade since the 1940s) remains unchanged.
Be sure to let me know what's missing from my list of favorites.
12. Scrooge (1970)
11. A Christmas Story (1983)
10. The Holiday (2006)
9. A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965)
8. Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas (1966)
7. How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000)
6. Holiday Inn (1942)
5. Miracle on 34th Street (1947)
4. Miracle on 34th Street (1994)
3. It's A Wonderful Life (1946)
2. Love Actually (2003)
1. White Christmas (1954)
Yours in a fabulous cinematic Ho! Ho! Ho!
