My favorite Christmas movies

MY WIFE HOLLY AND I have been watching some of our favorite Christmas movies the last few weeks.

We started with our favorite, White Christmas, and I watched another of my favorites, Desk Set, the same day. (Both were on Netflix.) I know that Desk Set, with Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn, isn't a traditional Christmas movie, but it has Christmas trees and presents. And I like it.

Today, Holly and I watched two more favorites, The Bishop's Wife and Miracle on 34th Street (the one with Edmond Gwenn). We haven't watched It's a Wonderful Life yet, but they'll probably have it on TV later today; I don't have a copy of it.

Holly also broke out our copy of Holiday Inn tonight, but I couldn't watch it. I like White Christmas MUCH better.

Tomorrow (or later today), we'll watch another of our favorites, It Happened on Fifth Avenue. It's not a traditional favorite, but it's one of MY favorites. I found it at Big Lots, and I've been watching it ever since.

Oh, I forgot; we watched Trading Places with Dan Ackroyd and Eddie Murphy (plus Jamie Leigh Curtis) recently on Netflix. Yes, it's not a traditional Christmas movie, either, but it has Christmas, Santa and presents, and I love that movie.

One other thing: I also watched The Santa Clause 2 on Netflix the other day. It's less mean-spirited than the first one and better than the third one.

UPDATE: I just finished Pottersville, a strange Christmas movie about Bigfoot. The hero of the movie (Maynard Greiger) winds up learning that he's really had a wonderful life (or is about to have one). The interesting thing is that the mean or bad man in It's A Wonderful Life was Mr. Potter.

I won't watch Pottersville again, but I enjoyed it.
