Christmas is nearly upon us, and you know what that means!! Time for all of our nostalgic memories of Christmases past to come rushing back in the form of television specials or movies.
Alot of our earliest Christmas memories stem from sitting in front of a TV set while the Christmas tree illuminates the living room. The Rankin/Bass christmas specials(a majority of which I adore, even the Rudolph and Frosty's Christmas in July special) do show their age, but still have that charm of knowing that it was handmade and with the purpose of entertaining families the world over.
Many other specials have that nostalgic effect on people as well. For example; Dr. Suess' How the Grinch Stole Christmas, A Charlie Brown Christmas, and so on.
Not only in the form of television, but motion pictures go out of their way to make Christmas memories, whether their set during the holiday(Gremlins, Batman Returns) or the whole basis of the film is centered on the day(A Christmas Story, The Polar Express). So with this thread feel free to share your favorite Christmas specials/films, and along that share some of your favorite memories cntered around that special or film.
