  • You are missing two:

    1. "Home Alone" (the first) which in many way is even better than the sequel, and

    2. "A Christmas Story", although this one may not count because it was originally a TV special and not a film per se. Will Ralphie get the Daisy Red Ryder BB gun he so desires?

  • I am SHOCKED and OFFENDED that the all-time CLASSIC Christmas in Connecticut was not included, when Christmas with the Kranks was. Barbara Stanwyck is my QUEEN and she is a TREASURE.

  • Most of these seem to be focussing on romance which makes them a big no for me, but Home Alone is a classic, of course.
