for, it was several days ago while ordering more Christmas movies to add to my ever-growing collection that i became nostalgic and started reminiscing about my "wgn days gone by"...
i have quite a collection of movies in my library.
now, i'm going to share with you 25 of my all-time favorites.
(a few are subject to change... as i have yet to watch several (the bishop's wife, white Christmas, holiday inn, four Christmases, ernest saves Christmas, and Christmas vacation II) that i recently purchased. ha, i don't expect the latter two to put a dent in my list; but one never knows!)
the following is my compilation.
they are in NO order.
- miracle on 34th street no one has ever captured the essence of santa quite like edmund gwenn.
- the bells of st. mary's in my opinion, the best bing crosby movie of all time.
- it's a wonderful life two words... jimmy stewart:)
- a Christmas story you'll shoot your eye out, kid.
- rudolph the red-nosed reindeer claymation at its best... i don't recall ever missing this tv Christmas special. burl ives rocks!!!
- heidi only shirley temple's version for me.
- a Christmas carol love them ALL and hope to see disney's most recent 3-d adaptation of this Christmas classic.
- how the grinch stole Christmas dr. suess' tv version captures this story best; however, the big screen adaptation is beautiful!

- Giant though not a Christmas movie, i love this epic movie and always set aside a day (usually thanksgiving) during the holiday season to watch this as well as number 13:)))
***update... the bishop's wife could have easily knocked about five movies from the list above, though it only had to replace one;))) and, it did!!!
