Y is for Yuletide

It's the penultimate day of the challenge and time for the letter I struggle with every blessed year. Did anyone else have trouble coming up with something for the letter "Y"? Fortunately for me, I happened to come up with a category that not only works for today's letter, but also helps me settle a long debated subject with my friends. 

So for today's A to Z Movie Smackdown, the category is Christmas – or Yuletide  movies. And seriously, I could come up with a list so long it would eclipse the entire challenge (I'm a Christmas fanatic). But instead I'm simply going to feature two of my favorites and one movie that I absolutely hate (you'll have to guess which one that is, as I won't be telling just yet), and we'll see what you guys have to say about it. So cast your VOTE and let me know which is your favorite . . .

Y is for Yuletide:

  2. It's How the Grinch Stole Christmas for me, with Home Alone coming in as a close second.

  3. Yes, 'Y' gave me headaches too! I eventually got my fans on Facebook to weigh in and help me find a topic! My theme has been "Out of Africa" and I eventually settled on Y is for Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow - a beautiful flowering shrub found in Southern Africa.
    Re movies, I would have to go along with Home Alone as I haven't seen the other one.

  4. A Christmas Story. Can I use all the days I didn't vote for a movie and cast them for this one? My family watches it every year. I have the DVD. We still make jokes about someone looking like a 'deranged Easter bunny'. A Christmas Story for sure! Yay, Ralphie.

  13. Grinch, then Home Alone then Christmas Story. If I could choose from any movie White Christmas and It's a Wonderful Life would have to be there. And while no one has heard of it you should all watch The Ref. Awesome counter programming for Christmas! Such a great movie with a good cast. We watch that every Thanksgiving night to get ready for the season.

  14. Oooh to close ones for me but I shall go with "A Christmas Story" as my first since I love so many things about this one. It has the meanest Santa and elf ever-beats Billy Bob Thornton in Bad Santa. The close second is The Grinch. How can one not love Boris Karloff being the narrator. I am not a fan of the kid at all so Home Alone can stay all alone for me. Hey? Where is my all time favourite "It's A Wonderful Life?" :)

  15. I realize I'll probably shoot my eye out, but it's "A Christmas Story" for me.

  16. Well, I never really got into A Christmas Story, so for me, I'm going to choose Home Alone.

  17. A Christmas Story! You'll shoot your eye out! That movie is the best :)

  18. A Christmas Story, hands down. Don't get me wrong, I've seen and enjoyed the others, but A Christmas Story is something I've enjoyed no matter what stage of my life I'm in.

  19. I've gotta give this one to Home Alone - I still love it, I can't help it ;)
