What To Watch for the Holidays

Since we're having a baby & have been together for nearly 5 years, I've been thinking about establishing our own traditions. So for the holiday season, Matt & I started a tradition of watching a crapton of Christmas movies & episodes from TV shows. It's not a fancy tradition, but we like the ridiculousness of things made for the Xmas season.

Some of the things we've been watching are:

Gremlins (& Gremlins 2)

Community Christmas episodes, "Comparative Religion"

"Abed's Uncontrollable Christmas"

"Regional Holiday Music"

"Twas the Day Before Christmas / Jingle Boo / The Great Wakkorotti: The Holiday Concert / Toy Shop Terror / Yakko's Universe"

Some we still plan on watching before the month is over include:

Home Alone (& Home Alone 2)

How are you/have you been celebrating your Hanukkah, Yule, Solstice, Christmas or whatever?

My wife & I have the same tradition. We watch most of the ones on your list, but I would suggest one more: Love, Actually.

Merry Christmas, May, from my family to yours.

Great list! And a special hooray for Abed's Uncontrollable Christmas, courtesy of animation house Starburns Industries!

You should add Garfield to the list. Humorous and heartfelt... and catchy Lou Rawls songs!

Byron - Oh yeah! Love, Actually is a fun one :) Merry Christmas!

Joe - OH yeah! I like Garfield cartoons. I should definitely add that!
