Around this time of year I like to watch a certain collection of Christmas movies to get in the spirit, (and Christmas movies I like to watch when I'm with the family), some are:

-Merry Christmas Charlie Brown! (been watching it since I was a kid)
-A Wonderful Life (classic)
-A Christmas Story (another classic, pretty funny flick)
-Bad Santa (new, dark, funny ass Christmas flick)
-Scrooged! (great Christmas flick with the amazing Bill Murray)

What others do you guys watch around this time of year, (if any)?

Second pretty much everything mentioned.

I also like all the gay Rankin/Bass puppet ones like Jack Frost, Nestor, Santa, Rudolph, all those.

And of course Silent Night, Deadly Night:

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
Scrooged.

On Christmas Eve, my friends and I get drunk as hell and watch Black Christmas (the original, not the POS remake) and "I Spit on Your Grave" (not sure why).

For some reason, I have an unhealthy obsession with And Then There Were None (the 1945 version) around this time of year...even though it's nowhere near related to the holidays.

Many of the ones mentioned here:

Scrooged
Nat'l Lampoons
Christmas Story
Home Alone

On Christmas Eve:
1951 Christmas Carol
Mickey's Christmas Carol

One I have been looking for everywhere and haven't been able to find (This may be a good thing because I am positive it won't hold up in my late-20s as it did when I was 8) is Yogi's First Christmas.
