Saw The Empire Strikes Back as a kid for the first time @ my cousins on Christmas day.

That's a Christmas movie for me now. 

That and the first Die Hard. 

"Mr Takagi will not be joining us... for the rest of his life."

My favorite lines from Die Har:

Agent Johnson: YAAAAAAHEEEEEEEEEE!!!! Just like f*cking Saigon! 

Other Agent Johnson: I was in junior high, dickhead.

The year: 1989-90

The moment: I was sitting in the barber's chair getting my holiday haircut. The woman cutting my hair had brought in a 13" tv/vcr combo. She started Die Hard at the beginning of my haircut. Me, in my moment of glory, spent the entire movie in her chair breaking down the awesomeness of every scene with her... and explaining to her that this move made Ode to Joy my favorite Christmas Song even over Bing's White Christmas. She asked, "is this your favorite movie too?" and I responded, "it's my favorite Christmas movie".

The rest of popular culture has been playing catchup since.

I think that's how I'd order them right now, after waking up at 6AM, burying about 2 bottles of cab, and working my ass off in the kitchen. :)

A Christmas Story?

it’s a Wonderful Life?

Miracle on 34th Street? (The original)

 

"It's a Wonderful Life"; why is Uncle Billy, the biggest moron in movie history, not getting the Nicky Santoro/Casino tool workshop thing done to him? Let's have George have his life ruined while this rummy dumb loses a pile of money, no biggie. The worst.

As kids we always watched Mr Magoo’s A Christmas Carol.

Yup. The are a ton of great animated “Christmas specials” (as we used to call them). I was hesitant about including any because they’re really a different thing altogether, but I felt like getting the original Grinch in there because that Jim Carey Ron Howard abomination might be the worst film ever made.
