Zero. I hate Christmas movies!
I do like the Charlie Brown specials, and I loved "Bell, Book and Candle" as it's not that much of a Christmas movie.
Has anyone seen Family Stone? i LOVED that movie, but my soul sister BFF hated it. I'm thinking I might be the only fan
Only Bad Santa and Love Actually since they were both on cable this past weekend. I save my favorites for Christmas Eve (Christmas Vacation, Scrooged, and A Christmas Story).
I try to avoid the Christmas movies on HMC and Lifetime. BUUUUT last year I came upon one called "Recipe for a Perfect Christmas." It has Christine Baranski aaand Bobby Cannavale, both who are on respected series at the moment. But this Lifetime movie was made in 2005 when I think they both needed money. It's sooo cheesy. But I watched the shit out of it.
Zero, so far. I might watch Die Hard, does that count?
Nice to see quite a few of you mentioned Elf. That will ALWAYS be my favourite holiday movie!!!
Scrooged, Home Alone, Elf, and A Charlie Brown Christmas.
OMG! Can't believe I forgot Prep & Landing! Love that one too! And that's a case where the sequel is just as fun!
Just watched our first last night – Prep and Landing, which was actually really cute. Only 22 minutes, have to ease my husband into the Christmas spirit. Kids loved it

None. 🙁 I don't have regular TV, just Roku, and I rarely even turn that on. I do want to watch "It's a Wonderful Life" and "Miracle on 34th Street", and maybe "An Affair to Remember" this season. I get weepy over everything in December for some reason.
None so far, but last year I discovered a gem called Nestor the long-eared Christmas donkey
Okay, I often torment my mother for her love of the Lifetime/Hallmark/Family Channel Christmas flicks, but you know the one I really enjoy? COMFORT AND JOY, with Nancy McKeon. THAT was a very clever one! I just love her anyway…AND it has one Miss Dixie Carter, too! Anyone else dig this one?
"Love Actually" is the best! It's in heavy play on all the HBO's right now, all in glorious HD.
I did watch the "Bastogne" – episode of Band of Brothers the other night. Does that count?
Watched the Shrek X-mas special last night. When busted I blamed it on my 10 week old son!lol
oh, and elf. so 9.

i have something on while i'm decorating. my whole house is decorated!
None yet. I'm not really in the spirit and I still think it might be too soon.
However, I'm considering watching LOVE ACTUALLY this weekend. It's one of my all-time favorites, Christmas or not. Colin, Liam, Alan, Rowan…all in the same flick?! One simply CANNOT go wrong.
All I've watched is Christmas Vacation so far – I'd never seen the whole movie before. "We're going to have the hap-happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap danced with Danny fucking Kaye!" HAH!
I've got a few that I watch every year, but it will not be officially the Christmas season until I pop "A Muppet Family Christmas" into the DVD player. My copy is a bootleg and includes all the scenes that have been cut out over the years due to song rights issues – it's my favorite Christmas movie ever.
Babes in Toyland (March of the Wooden Soldiers) (1934).
I've already lost count. I watch the Hallmark channel a lot between Thanksgiving and Christmas. The movies they show are unintentionally hilarious.
forgot about jingle all the way!!!! thanks!! scrooged is on menu tonight
None. I try to ignore Christmas until the week of. It's not like anyone is shoving Hannukah music in my face, so I try and think about that….and do not go into any stores without a set of headphoness for my phone to tune out the torturous music for the next month.
I may watch "A Christmas Story", but not till at least mid-December.
3 so far, Jingle All The Way, Elf, and Christmas Vacation. Will probably watch Love, Actually tonight (my husband's favorite!). Also, I've already eaten about 80 chocolate chip cookies. Oops!!
None yet, I usually don't do that until the days before christmas.
Thanksgiving..planes, trains and automobiles and Dutch…so far Christmas: bridget jones, love actually, christmas vacation love song for bobby long (one christmas scene but its funny and gabriel macht! Lol
Already seen countless! My house looks like an elf exploded in here. This is my favorite time of year. I hate spring and summer.
@bobbi Might I suggest "The Man Who Came To Dinner" (1942, starring Monty Woolley and Bette Davis). Includes such amazing lines like "My great aunt Jennifer ate a whole box of candy every day of her life. She lived to be 102, and when she had been dead three days, she looked better than you do now." Might provide the appropriate level of holiday cheer 🙂
Amber, YES!!!! Ethan Embry was so adorable in that one–well, he's adorable in just about everything he does.
Karen, ABC Family movies are so awesome! It's not a Christmas one, but remember the one with the nerdy girl who moves to NYC and her neighbor is Ethan Embry and she thinks he's gay even though he's in love with her and then she gets all hot and hooks up with her boss?
Oh, Bad Santa too.
I'll watch the Burl Ives on Christmas Eve, other than that I can't stand Christmas movies. Or music. Way too much cheer for me. What can I say, I'm a consistent downer.
None yet. But I plan to watch Gremlins, The Ref, Life With Mikey and Eyes Wide Shut during Christmas week. What? Eyes Wide Shut took place during Christmas time didn't it? I feel it counts.
None, but I did go see A Christmas Story on Broadway. Definitely were way more adults than kids in the audience and the grown up boys were laughing the loudest.
Planes Trains and Automobiles and Charlie Brown Thanksgiving so far. Got lots to go!
Die hard 2 and I was forced to watch the spongebob christmas special, twice.
Amber, I haven't, but it sounds like something I'd watch. Last year, I enjoyed DJ from Full House saving her father's Christmas theme park. The year or two before that I remember the mom on Yes Dear and Dean Cain adopting orphans for Christmas.
This is a guiltier pleasure for me than reading romance novels.
Christmas Vacation, Elf, Bridget Jones Diary (there's Christmas in it). 3 down, about 22 to go!
*karen* – Have you seen Snow Globe w/Christina Milian?! It's so awful hahahaha
Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. The only ones I care to watch are the AWESOME BUrl Ives claymation ones with Rudolph, Frosty, Jack Frost, etc. I'm obsessed with them.
None yet, but I always watch a bunch. I'm a sucker for those ABC Family movies starring C- listers who used to be As and Bs.
Does the original "Grinch" count as a movie? If so, one. If not, then zero.
