    I like "All the hoos down in hooville will cry boo hoo!" :)

  2. Thats a great list..I simply did songs this week. Thanks for sharing

  3. Great list and walk down memory lane. Every time I hear a Burl Ives Christmas tune, it takes me back to the days of feeted pajamas!

  4. Lots of good memories on your list!

  5. OH good memories! I really like Frosty and A Christmas Story. Also that one that the Heatmiser in it - what was that?? I never see it anymore...There was a song, Mr. Heatmiser...

    Great list. :) Wonderful Christmas memories. I always feel for Charlie Brown and the sad little tree that he picks.

    Happy T13. :)

  8. i haven't seen any of those movies in ages!

    i loved Rudolph as a kid, but when i tried to share it with my daughter many years ago, she was scared by Bumble, and we haven't tried watching it since.

    another favorite from my childhood is The Little Drummer Boy.

    a favorite song is "Put One Foot in Front of the Other" from Santa Claus Is Coming to Town.

    my college roommates and i loved A Christmas Story!

  9. The "I cant put my arms down is classic"

    Love all the Rudolph memories... that is truly my favorite special. Although Frosty and Charlie Brown (and the Grinch) aren't far behind.

    Happy TT from West of Mars!

    My favorite show has always been Year Without A Santa Clause. I LOVE Heat Miser!

  13. Anonymous12:38 PM

    This is torture to read all these titles and I just want to watch shows now and cuddel up...but have to run around all day. Hope your day at work is going well...don't you find sometimes getting to work is easier than being a t home, almost less responsibility ha ha! Have to go to work to rest!

    I love Scrooged, the character that Carol Kane plays. I love the animated Rudolph tv program from decades ago every little bit of it, the set and animation and animals.

    I like the cop and taxi driver in the movie "It's A Wonderful Life" they are called Bert and Ernie and where the muppets got their names from.

    I love holiday movies they really help inspire me for the entire year!

    Here is my list...

  14. LOL! Well, I'm not TTer but I haven't been by for a bit, so I'm here! I like a LOT of your thirteen! But I think the tree in Charlie Brown is my all time favorite! And I like it BEFORE it magically transforms into beautiful... when it is just a stick and a sprout with one red ball hanging on it! LOL! I DO LOVE that tree! GREAT list!

  15. I love the Christmas movies! My kids have been quoting from The Grinch - the one with Jim Carrey.

  16. I love those Charlie Brown holiday cartoons. It brings back so many memories. I tried to get Girlie Girl to watch it but she showed no interest at all.

  17. <drunkenwarble>"He-LLLLOOOOOO! SAN-tee CLAUS!!!"</drunkenwarble>

    from the original Miracle on 34th Street.

  18. I think I'd also like to give the Cingular "Christmas Story" commercial an honorable mention.

    (And the line from Miracle on 34th Street is a bit misquoted - like "Play it again, Sam" from Casablanca. My mother has been manglequoting this line for so long, it's taken on a life of its own in my family.)

  19. Is it unamerican to admit that I really have not watched barely any of these?!!

    I think my favorite is the old black and white Miracle on 34th Street.

  20. Your one about Charlie Brown's Christmas tree made me think about the Friends episode where Phoebe wants to save all the little puny trees. Aww....isn't that sweet. :)

  21. fragile - fraw -jee -lay

    must be Italian

    I wouldn't touch you with a 39 and a half foot pole

    from the Grinch

  22. Great List - I love A Christmas Story.

  23. Good afternoon, yes I am still alive surprised lol.
    someone related to you won the auditions btw ;)

  24. There's nothing from "It's A Wonderful Life" on there. D: I'm gonna cry! That's the best Christmas movie ever!

  25. Brittany... um I mean Bert! Do you know me?

    Atta boy Clarence.

  26. I've always loved the David Bowie-narrated 'Snowman'. Sounds weird, but it is pretty fantastic actually.

  27. I'm late to see this list! Though I can't figure out why! I need a clone just to visit all these wonderful blogs every week!

    I LOVE the quote from Rudolph! "She thinks imb cuuuuuute!" It's so sweet and I always remember that feeling from that first crush that returns your feelings, don't you? :)

    Love the post! Where have you been? I miss you!

  29. "You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch."

    the part in "A Christmas Story" where the kid gets his tongue stuck on the icy flagpole.

    "You'll shoot your eye out."

    (My kids are really into the Wiggles Christmas videos now. *roll eyes*)
