  1. My favorite Christmas movie? Wow, I love so many. I love It's a Wonderful Life. And Christmas Vacation. And even the cheesy but great Smokey Mountain Christmas with Dolly Parton and Lee Majors.

    Guess I will go with Christmas Vacation.

  2. It's a Wonderful Life is definitely one of my favorites. My mom used to make us watch it every Christmas morning.

  3. White Christmas.

    Thanks for the giveaway! Happy holidays!
