(Holiday) Question Of The Day


What to choose, right? Well, it may not be the only favourite but The Santa Clause movie definitely ranks as a top favourite for me.


Tim Allen plays the part of Scott Calvin who accidentally causes Santa Claus to fall from his roof on Christmas Eve, and then finds himself recruited to take his place.

I've seen this movie numerous times and will undoubtedly watch it again and again.

Your turn.

  2. That was a cute movie :) I liked Elf and then I thought it was kind of silly but I liked Jingle All the Way. And the first Home Alone was kind of cute too. Lots of them out there, aren't they?

  6. I like the old ones, can't really pick a favourite. I've been watching the ones on Showcase when I have time ... everything turns out right in the end and always a love story.

  7. I love the old Miracle in 34th Street - I think it's from 1947. I watched Elf at the weekend with my daughter and had a good weep, which caused her to fall off the sofa laughing.

  8. I don't watch many movies, as usually I prefer the old tv series. But I'll have to say Holiday Inn (1942). I also enjoyed Fitzwilly (1967), although it's story line doesn't exactly follow the lovely Christmas tradition of giving...

  13. I'm going to go with It's a Wonderful Life, although it's too long and involved to watch every year. I do love the message in it, though.

    1. It has a very good message. I didn't watch this until I was in my 40s. I'm not sure what took so long!

  15. A Chrismas related film? Or a film shown at Christmas?
    I think I like that Home Alone movie. Macaulay Culkin was so cute then.

  16. Love The Santa Clause! I also love Holiday Inn with Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire, but my guilty pleasure if Jingle All The Way with Schwarzenegger, it just tickles me! and Sinbad is hilarious, as are Phil Hartman and Rita Wilson.

  21. My favourite Xmas movie is 'Scrooge'....the 1930's original one.

  22. I really loved the first one in The Santa Clause pack.

    Every Christmas Eve, we watch "How The Ghosts Stole Christmas", it's an XFile with Lily Tomlin and Ed Asner. Every single year. Then it turns midnight on the show, and we open gifts.

    1. The first movie in The Santa Clause pack is definitely my favourite. It's just so darn funny.

      I love your Christmas tradition. Way cool. We are binge-watching the X-Files right now...every single night. Love it! Eventually we'll get to this episode!
