The Year Without a Santa Claus. My FAVORITE of the Rankin/Bass Christmas specials, filled with fantastic tunes, memorable characters. and a highly entertaining story. I watch this every year. Rewatched 12/24/14
Elf (2003). I'll admit it. I just never got Will Ferrell until I saw elf. He's childish, but in the best way possible. When holiday stress starts to edge out the good stuff, I pop this dvd into the player and get the joy of the season back again.
