I wasn't supposed to watch this before December started, but it was playing on channel ten that night and my cousin was visiting and wanted to watch it. While many consider it to be a sub-par sequel to a mediocre kids film, I see it as a silly and somewhat fun kiddie-flick of the '90s that sees Culkin carry the film brilliantly.

Die Hard (1988)
Watched December 1st

The official kick-off to my Christmas season for 2011. Die Hard was the perfect way to open December, the same night my sisters and I put up our tree and decorations. One of the greatest action films ever made, its fun to watch any time of the year.

A remake of the 1947 classic. This fits into the category I call the "stupid kids films of the 1990s", however, unlike Baby's Day Out, or Flubber, this is more heartwarming with only a few "stupid" moments (like a chance wedding and stupid witnesses during the court case). This is inspiring with a strong message of faith of goodness.

Gremlins (1984)
Watched December 11th

Like Die Hard, this isn't what most people would consider as a conventional Christmas film, but it certainly is a classic in my books. A horror comedy that is a lot of fun with creative looking creatures. How cute is Gizmo?!

Cheesy, but lovable.

Bad Santa (2003)
Watched December 16th

One of the best Christmas movies of the past decade. Everyone was expecting this to just be a swear-fest with low brow gross out comedy. It's much more than that. It has a deep message at its heart. With the Coen Brothers producing, expect layers.

Great to watch during both Halloween and Christmas. I like that it is stop-motion claymation because not only does it look fantastic, it is kind of Tim Burton's own unique f***ed-up version of those old Christmas Specials.

A faithful adaptation of the Dickens classic novel. Made with unbelievably realistic animation.

Will Ferrell fans, like myself, will appreciate this.

Television Specials

The Simpsons:

Watched December 13
What can I say? It's a Christmas Special AND it's the first ever Simpsons episode! I'll always hold this one close to my heart.


Marge Be Not Proud-
Watched December 8th
Roasting on an Open Fire scores nostalgia points, but this is really the best Christmas episode of The Simpsons. From Lee Cavallo's Putting Challenge to Milhouse screaming "Mum! Bart's Smoking!"


Miracle on Evergreen Terrace-
Watched Christmas Day


South Park:

Red Sleigh Down-
Watched December 8th
One of the better South Park Christmas specials. All the main Christmas characters of South Park appear, ie. Santa, Mr. Hanky, the underpants knomes/elves and even Jesus! I love the ending where Santa exclaims "From now on, Christmas will be about remembering Jesus!" Brilliant.


It's Christmas in Canada-
Watched Christmas Day


Friends:

TOW Phoebe's Dad-
December 14
The first Christmas episode of Friends. Highlights includes Ross trying to make up with Rachel, and Chandler and Joey handing out their sub-par gifts.



TOW Rachel Quits-
Watched December 14
I love this one. Think of Ross trying to sell cookies on behalf of a little girl (whose leg he broke). Or Phoebe getting upset over Joey selling Christmas trees. Classic Friends.


Community:

Comparitive Religion-

The Office:

The Christmas Party-

The Benihana Christmas-

A Very Special Family Guy Freakin' Christmas-

Others:

Casper's First Christmas
Watched Christmas Day

There are many traditions during the festive season. For me personally, I try to watch as many classic Christmas movies, and television specials as I can during the month of December. Here is the task ahead this December and the dates I watched them:
