There are literally thousands upon thousands of Christmas movies and one just doesn't have the time or the inclination to view them all. Which of course leads to a dilemma since the Christmas season is so short. How do you decide which movies are absolutely "must sees" each Christmas season. Well my good old "Take A Mulligan" friends-not to worry because today's column will help you sort out the best Christmas movies of all time for you to watch this year. However you must promise not to be querulous at these selections. The staff worked hard and long just for you.

Here are the best Christmas movies of all time....

A Christmas Carol. What a story about an old rich miser that finally finds the true meaning of Christmas. I love them all, but the ones starring Alistair Cooke, George C. Scott and Patrick Stewart respectively are top-notch. That Muppet one is good also. Ah, heck, they're all great!!!!

It's A Wonderful Life: Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed. Again the true spirit of Christmas reigns through.

Miracle on 34th Street. The original of course.

Planes, Trains and Automobiles. Just one of those weird movies that is kinda fun to watch. John Candy does a good job.

Bells of St. Marys. Bing Crosby and Ingrid Bergman play a Priest and a Nun who try to save their school from being shut down. Great movie.

Elf, The Grinch Who Stole Christmas and Polar Express are all, "ya gotta be in the mood" kind of movies. I seldom am, but ya never know. Maybe you are!!!

Now here are my absolute two favorites;

Silent Night: True story set towards the end of World War 11. A German mother and her son are invaded by three American and three German soldiers on Christmas Eve, in their small home. The opposing soldiers, mortal enemies, must somehow endure the night together. The Mother and her son will have to figure out a way. GET THE DVD ON THIS ONE!!

Joyeux, Noel: This true story is set during World War 1 and three divisions of armies, the Germans, the French and the Scotts are holed up in close proximity on Christmas Eve. This is another "must see."

Ok, there you have it.

The "Take A Mulligan" staff have worked hard and long enduring movie after movie to bring you the very best movies to watch. No compensation is necessary. Just your unwavering love, devotion, appreciation and gratitude will be enough.
