    Name your top winter holiday films. This is a thread so corny I can't believe we haven't done it.

    1) A Christmas Story
    2) Best Man Holiday (that New Edition scene @Wild@Wild knows what's up)
    3) National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
    4) Love Actually

    I've never seen Bad Santa, but am told I'd like it. Is it good?

    So if you watch Friday the 13th every year in the Spring does that make it an Easter Movie?

    It's a snowy holiday movie 3 weeks removed from actual winter season start. It has all the same themes as any Christmas movie and is in a thread about "winter holiday movies".

    Pfft.
    Just admit it. You thought it was a Christmas movie until someone corrected you, then you remembered Del Griffith being welcomed into Neil's home for Thanksgiving at the end of the movie.

    Not that it matters. It's still a great movie. And those still aren't pillows.

    I read the title of holiday movie and then winter holiday movie and consider thanksgiving to be in this same mix.
    I forgot when winter started mostly.

    It's OK.
    I won't make fun of you for being seasonally challenged.

    Thanksgiving is fall.
    Oranges, Browns, Yellows

    Christmas is winter.
    White, Red, Green

    Hope this helps. You can write that down and put it on a cue card if you want.
