My favorite is, and will always be, "It's a Wonderful Life", with Jimmy Stewart.

Steve and I pick a night when it's snowing and the tree is up, build a big fire, fix Blueberry Tea (decafe English breakfast tea, shot and a half of GrandMarnia (sp), shot of Amaretto, and lemon peel--devine) and immerse ourselves in that movie. Crying like babies when it's done. Perfect.

Scrooged is my favorite.  It's a perfect role for Bill Murray, and I hope to see him in a  traditional production of Christmas Carol someday.

Do you have a favorite Christmas movie you save for the holidays?

I love "The Christmas Carol" with Patrick Stewart...

I intend to get a DVD of it this year if I can find it.

I also like catching the old cartoons..."Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer", "Frosty the Snowman" and all those kids shows from when I was a kid...

This particular production is one of my all time favorites!  My daughter gave it to me a few years ago as a Christmas present, and I truly treasure it.  I may go watch it a little later on.  My other Christmas security blanket movies:

Jingle all the Way
A Christmas Carol (Alistar Sim)
The Kid who Loved Christmas
A Diva's Christmas Carol (Vanessa Williams)
Ebbie (Susan Lucci)
Scrooged
The Santa Clause franchise

Are we allowed to make lists? :D

A Christmas Carol with George C. Scott
The Preacher's Wife
Home Alone
Steel Magnolias (I realize this isn't necessarily a Christmas movie, but try watching it as you're wrapping presents and you'll see what I mean!)
Prancer
The Santa Clause (I love Tim Allen!)
A Christmas Story
The Littlest Angel (Does anyone remember this one? I haven't seen it in years.)
The House Without A Christmas Tree
A Christmas Carol With Alistair Sim

There's so many. I can't think of them all.

I also love the traditional Christmas shows - Rudolph the Red Nosed Raindeer, A Charlie Brown Christmas, Frosty the Snowman, Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, and others.

And I'd be a humbug if I didn't love all the old classic Christmas movies - Holiday Inn, Miracle on 34th Street, It's a Wonderful Life and The Bishop's Wife. :D

David, the Christmas Carol with George C. Scott is a favorite, also.  I'm thinking about buying that one in a few days.  I also can't face the Holidays without Planes, Trains and Automobiles!
