Monday movie meme

This week's movie topic is all about Your Holiday Favorites...

Share on your blog your favorite movies that either take place during the holidays, are about the holidays or just have a special personal connection for you with the holidays and link back here at The Bumbles. And don't forget to visit your fellow participants!

A Christmas Carol (George C. Scott version, 1984): Probably the truest to Dickens' original work. Ebenezer Scrooge takes the classic journey through past, present and future to understand the true meaning of Christmas. "'Men's courses will foreshadow certain ends, to which, if persevered in, they must lead,' said Scrooge. 'But if the courses be departed from, the ends will change. Say it is thus with what you show me.'"

Ernest Saves Christmas: Lovable, irritating Ernest P. Worrell helps Santa find his replacement. It's stupid and silly, but warmhearted fun. "I am at one with the Yuletide...knowwhatImean?"

It's a Wonderful Life: George Bailey learns just how many lives he's touched for the better. Capra-corn at its finest. "Strange, isn't it? Each man's life touches so many other lives. When he isn't around he leaves an awful hole, doesn't he?"

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation: Our annual reminder that Christmas - and family - doesn't have to be perfect to be wonderful. "Hallelujah! Holy shit! Where's the Tylenol?"|

While You Were Sleeping: A favorite rom-com set at Christmas. Lonely Lucy is crushing on Peter, and saves his life when he ends up in a coma. But while waiting for him to recover she meets and falls for his brother, Jack. "I went from being all alone to being a fiancee, a daughter a granddaughter, a sister and a friend."
