Christmas Movies

This post is inspired from the last post about what is so fascinating to us about the Christmas tradition. Now I'm curious about favorite Christmas movies.

What is it that we like about Christmas movies? Do we like the family togetherness in movies like It's a Wonderful Life; do we like fantasy Christmas tales like The Grinch; do we like screwball comedy like National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation; do we like animated classic favorites like Charlie Brown, Rudolph, or Nightmare Before Christmas? What is it that we like?
