A while back, I surveyed my readers on their favorite Christmas movies. Many of you said how much you'd love to see NORTH POLE HIGH turned into a movie (thank you!). But here are your top ten picks of Christmas movies that have already been made:
1. A CHRISTMAS STORY
the book In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash by Jean Shepherd, this Christmas classic from the director of Black Christmas and Porky's runs continuously all Christmas Day on TBS and is also a Broadway musical!
2. MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET
3. IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE
The Greatest Gift, by Philip Van Doren Stern. The author printed 200 copies and sent them out as Christmas cards. One of those landed at RKO and the rest is history.
A Christmas Carol when he is visited by three ghosts who convince him he should have done The Sound of Music instead.
6. NATIONAL LAMPOON'S CHRISTMAS VACATION
7. THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS
8. BEAUTY AND THE BEAST: THE ENCHANTED CHRISTMAS
9. THE POLAR EXPRESS
the 1985 book by Chris Van Allsburg.
10. EMMET OTTER'S JUG-BAND CHRISTMAS
'Tis the season to enjoy your favorite Christmas movies all over again. With crushed candy canes sprinkled in your popcorn.
