My 20 Christmas Film Selections

31Christmas2

This Advent and Christmas I’m watching 31 Christmas Films.  You can catch up on why I’m doing this here.

Here are my rules:

  1. Only feature length films. No animated TV classics that run 30 or 50 minutes.
  2. No horror flicks.  I’m looking at you “Silent Night, Deadly Night.”
  3. I won’t watch more than 6 films that I have already seen before in their entirety. (Marked with *)
  4. My wife, Melissa, gets to pick the January 5th movie since it’s her birthday.
  5. I’ve chosen 20 films, and the rest will come from you! Vote online now!
  6. They have to be about Christmas and not just happen on Christmas Eve or Day. No “Gremlins” for me!

Here are my 20!

  3. The Polar Express
