    Is it just me or are they not showing much. One channel here had some and another showed "Christmas Vacation" (Chevy Chase) 10 times in five nights. I was hoping they would have Albert Finney as Scrooge, or Bing Crosby in "Holiday Inn". Anyone else notice this?

    The Hallmark channel is running Christmas movies everyday from 12 noon-12 midnight.
    Some are reruns, some are new.

    I always love TNT when they show "A Christmas Story" all day on Christmas. That is by far my favorite Christmas movie and yes we watch the movie all day long on Christmas!!! :mrgreen:

    I like the older tv Christmas specials, The Walton's Christmas, Little House on the Prairie Christmas, Young Pioneers, shows like that. I haven't seen them on tv in years. One movie that is rarely shown is Santa Claus: The Movie with Dudley Moore. It's one of the better ones.

    In the movie "A Christmas Story" Ralphie is wanting a Red Ryder BB Gun and everyone is telling him "You'll shoot your eye out". Well my wife and I went to Bass Pro Shops and what did they have but a huge display of Red Ryder BB Guns!!

    Guess what I'm getting for Christmas! :mrgreen:

    My family loves A Christmas Story. The first year I saw it my folks got my son a BB gun for Christmas. I laughed so hard when he opened it.

    Looks as though we may have to resort to getting the DVD's to the older Christmas movies that we love. I noticed that Walmart has some of them for $5 but you got to dig for them.

    Oh wouldn't you know it.........we cannot get the Hallmark Channel here.
    :-(

    At least I have some tapes, but they are getting older and I worry they may break one day.
