    I watch You've Got Mail pretty much every year around this time. It's the perfect movie to take apart and analyze, structure-wise.

    As a family, we kind of cycle through Christmas movies. It's either Home Alone or Four Christmases or National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.... or Jingle All the Way.

    This year, we were listening to stand-up.

    I've been on a Jim Breuer kick lately, so this was my contribution. I guess this was festive because here's his take on how to handle alcohol:

    (90s):
    1. A Christmas Carol(?)
    2. Little Women (1994)
    3. You've Got Mail (thanks to @sassafras!)
    4. The Preacher's Wife (1996)
    5. Ebbie (1995) -TV Movie version of Scrooge
    6. The Santa Clause (1994)
    7. Home Alone (1990)
    (2000s):
    1. Eloise at Christmastime (2003)
    2. Pride and Prejudice (2005)
    3. The Holiday (2006)
    4. Love Actually (2003)

    1. Home Alone - it's usually on TV but it still gives me that feel and the 90s nostalgia. I appreciate it now for the Old Man Marley arc:


    Their ending never fails to make me tear up. I think for me, personally, too, Old Man Marley is a vision of ideal manhood since I was raised on stories of my mother's own grandfather, who was very similar except for the creepy reputation. Dignity and love up the wazoo.

    The rest of mine are a bit too idiosyncratic to be considered 'holiday' movies (e.g. The Futurama feature-lengths and Gladiator) but I have my reasons :relieved:

    I don't have any.

    Looking back, I've spent most Christmas' doing my own thing. I think I'm going to attend mass next Christmas or the Christmas after that.
