Wow - I have quite a few.

A Christmas StoryI love this movie, still. It reminds me of the Milwaukee Christmases of my childhood; there's a smidge of my grandfather in the Old Man, to be sure! The last few years we've gotten to see this on stage, which was wonderful, but alas, this year was the last year.

A Christmas Carol Again, I love to see this on stage when we can, but for the telly, Patrick Stewart's version is by far my favorite - brilliant!

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, et. al. All of the wonderful Rankin bass holiday specials are just so much a part of Christmas from when I was little - Jack Frost, Kris Kringle, the Heat Miser, and of course, Rudolph, Cornelius, Hermey, Clarice and the rest....

While You Were Sleeping I'm only rarely a sucker for the rom/com, but I love Sandra Bullock, and this one is a holiday staple. (I like Serendipity, too, but not as much!)

The Nightmare Before Christmas I can never decide if this is a Halloween movie, or a Christmas one. Either way, I love it.

Honorable Mentions: Edward Scissorhands, The Snowman, Die Hard, Lethal Weapon, The Original Grinch, The Muppet Christmas Carol, Scrooged.

Things I need to remember:
• Asking for help is not, as it turns out, fatal.
• Laughing is easier than pulling your hair out, and doesn't have the unfortunate side effect of making you look like a plague victim.
• Even the biggest tasks can be defeated if taken a bit at a time.
• I can write a paper the night before it's due, but the results are not all they could be.
• Be thorough, but focused.
• Trust yourself.
• Honesty, always.
