I am curious, does anybody have any "favorite" holiday themed movies. I have found that my favorites don't always find favor amongst many family members. Their loss.
My two favorites are: Rare Exports and Terry Prachett's Hogfather.
I loathe Christmas movies, apart from White Christmas, which is a soapy bit of fun. On Xmas evening I'm inclined to throw my copy on. Elsewise I might play The Court Jester from 1955 which I love to watch at Christmas, though not Xmasy. These days watching these old movies I tend to think of them as from 'Old America', before the fall of the Republic and the Dark Times. Jeez, I'm beginning to sound like Obi Wan Kenobi!
I watch all the Friends Thanksgiving episodes on Thanksgiving (if not several times that week). I watch Home Alone once or twice each Christmas season (couple years ago went to see it with the Cleveland Orchestra playing the music, it was amazing). There's no Halloween movie I watch every year as there are too many good ones and none that I think are so good they need to be watched every year at the expense of others, so I just watch ones I haven't seen or seen in a while. I watch Con Air every Con Air day (July 14th). That's all I can think of.
