"A Christmas Story", eons ahead of any other Christmas movie at #1, the original "Miracle on 34th Street" with Natalie Wood at #2 and a movie not listed, "Scrooge, the Musical" with Albert Finney ("Thank you very much" numbers leave you smiling about Christmas for days!) at #3. Bill Murray's "Scrooged" at a solid #4 and it wouldn't be Christmas without SNL Alumni Chevy Chase's "Christmas Vacation" and it's atomic powerhouse scene at #5. Merry Christmas everyone!
