  1. A Christmas Story! It's the only Christmas I watch every year. Thanks for the giveaway.

  2. Love Actually! My fiance and I always watch it while baking cookies.

  3. i love the holly hunter movie "home for the holidays".

  4. My favorite is for sure Snowglobe <3 It's on on December 8th and I can't wait

  5. I always watch Love, Actually. But I think I will add watching the Christmas episodes of Community to my holiday faves, as well. They're great for working on DIY presents.

  6. Thanks for the amazing giveaway. My favorite holiday movie is Elf.

  7. My favorite Holiday Movie is The Family Stone. Best quote, "You have a freak flag, you're just afraid to fly it" - Luke Wilson.

    Thanks for the great giveaway as always :)

  8. My favorite holiday movie is A Christmas Story; when TBS pays it 24hours a day starting on Christmas Eve my parents pretty much have it on the entire time at their house!

  9. My favorite holiday movie is Home Alone (the original)!

  10. RUDOLF! Of course! I love those "clay-namation" type movies so hard! Though A Christmas Story is a fucking classic! We watch it every year at my parents in the morning when we open presents.

    As far as family traditions, the last few years we (my dad's fam) we visit my grandparents (my Tatay and Nanay!) grave, as 12/25 is my grandfather's birthday. We use to always have Christmas afternoon with them before heading to my other grandparents house. Now that us kids are older, we usually spend the Christmas morning with our parents (me and my little other brothers....well, we won't talk about them), and then we spend the evening with our spouses family. Eh, I kinda want me own tradition now!

  11. The Grinch is my favorite holiday movie

  12. My favorite holiday movie is Die Hard, though I didn't see it until last year.

    My family eats crab on Christmas Day for dinner!

  13. Every year since my birth, my father takes the entire family, which now includes spouses and grandchildren out to dinner. It's the one family/holiday thing he demands of his children. We have a great time with great food. I look forward to to it every year. Thank you for the giveaway!

  14. My favorite holiday movie is Love Actually!

  15. Oh man, it's really hard to pick one favorite. I always watch Christmas Vacation and Elf with my whole family when we're all home so I do love those, but my personal fav might be Just Friends. It's completely silly and ridiculous, and my sister and I will just quote lines at each other for hours. "You'll always be fat to me, Chris!"

  16. love the Grinch - both the classic animated version AND jim carrey's live action. we always watch both every year!!

  17. The clay Rudolph! Been watching it all my life lol

  18. It's A Wonderful Life is my favorite BUT this year I am really excited about the christmas classics especially The Year Without a Santa Clause. I love heatmiser!!

  19. hands down favorite is "A Christmas Story" :D

  20. My favorite is the Muppet Christmas Carol! You get Dickens *and* Muppets. Perfect! Thanks for the giveaway!

  21. My favorite holiday movies are the classics - White Christmas, It's A Wonderful Life, Christmas In's tradition to have snacks and watch movies all day on Christmas Eve.

  22. Muppets Christmas Carol truly is the best. So funny!
