Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman, The Grinch that Stole Christmas. The classic TV shows that are a MUST see in my house.
When I was a kid, it was such a treat to stay up and see these specials. Now you can catch them a million times before the big day.
While the TV shows are great, to me the movies are even better. My all time favorite (while I still haven't watched it yet) is White Christmas. Something about a musical. I mean, Bing Crosby and Rose Clooney. Come on!
More recent favs include the series of The Santa Clause. It answers some great questions and I love watching it as a family. Chris' favorite is National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation - it's a must see each year. And while I fought watching it for the longest time, the newest to my addition is Elf. If you haven't seen it, please do so. It's packed FULL of Christmas spirit.
