So, lets have a little fun....

From 12:01 AM on November 23rd until 11:59 PM December 31st, as you watch Christmas-themed movies, list them here, along as to why they would be Christmas movies. This would not just be movies where the Christmas theme is obvious (i.e. White Christmas, It's A Wonderful Life), but where Christmas is part of a plot point. Examples would include:
  • Die Hard (Christmas Party) / Die Hard 2 (Flying during Christmas)
  • Cast Away ("Hey, is all this turbulence from Santa and those 8 tiny reindeer?")
  • Home Alone (Family going on a Christmas Vacation in France)
So, list the movie, which format you saw it in (DVD, BluRay, Netflix, or channel), when you saw the film, and, if necessary, what Christmas element is in it.

Christmas Vacation on Thanksgiving night. Started off with a DVR'd version from AMC, but switched to DVD about 20 minutes in because the family missed the bad language.
