As we make our final decent in to Christmas this week, I wanted to give you a little bit of holiday help. So I came up with a comprehensive list of the 5 best Christmas movies to watch this year. You can read my post from Monday with movies 5 through 3.
Five Best Christmas Movies | Part 1 (#'s 3-5)

To make my list, I used 5 different categories and weighed them accordingly with abbreviations and possible points next to them in parentheses.
  • Rewatch-ability (RW: 5 pts)
  • Christmas connection (CC: 5)
  • Family watch-ability (FW: 5)
  • Tradition (TR: 8)
  • Entertainment (ET: 10).  

2. Christmas Vacation [1989]

33 points (RW 5; CC 5; FW 4; TR 8; ET 10)
The best of all of the National Lampoon movies. Randy Quaid has several memorable scenes (The black mock turtleneck under the white sweater. Emptying his sewage in his bathrobe). Plus can you even see a house with Christmas decorations without thinking of Clark Griswold. 

1. Home Alone [1990]

33 points (RW 5; CC 5; FW 5; TR 8; ET 10)
It made Macaulay Culkin the biggest star on planet and launched his career. Doesn’t matter if you are young or old, there is something for everyone to like about this one. Who doesn’t love watching a kid left by his parents who went on a trip to Paris, and is forced to defend his house from burglars by booby-trapping the burglars. Also, the most quotable of all the Christmas movies by far. I was going to dock it points for making a sequel, but I just blocked it out of my mind and pretend like it never happened.
