The Peanut Gallery's Top 5 Christmas Movies

The Christmas season is a time for movie watching.

No holiday has more movies dedicated to it than Christmas. New ones have been coming out every year for nearly a century, with no sign of slowing down. These lists of our personal favorites at the Peanut Gallery feature some old classics, some newer, instant classics, and some that I patently don't agree with but, then again, I thought Batman v Superman was a really good movie, so who am I to judge? Different strokes.

Debate or roast us in the comments if you think you're better than us or something. And have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

NOTE: these lists include TV specials
