25 Christmas Movies

I’ve got my favorite Christmas movies that we watch every year. But sometimes a I need a new one. Back in the day before video and DVD, you had to watch whatever the networks chose to run, and whenever they broadcast. When video players came on the market it was a better option — but you still had to set a timer to record the movie to watch later.  It’s nice we get more choice now. Here’s a list to welcome the season:

1. It’s a Wonderful Life (1946, Jimmy Stewart, Donna Reed):

2.  Miracle on 34th Street (Maureen O’Hara, Natalie Wood, Edmund Gwenn):

3.  White Christmas (Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney, Vera-Ellen):
