It's time to organize the Holiday Movie Club for 2017!

The Club runs roughly from American Thanksgiving (Thursday, NOV 23) through New Years Eve.
I've compiled a list of movies that have been suggested that haven't been watched yet, and of course we will be watching old favorites as well (How The Grinch Stole Christmas! and A Christmas Story, for me).

You should select a movie from the list below, or one that we've watched before,and put it on the club schedule. Or, add a movie tothe list. Candidates include but are not limited to: movies with holiday themes, movies set during the holiday season, or movie taht you watch as a tradition during the holidays.

For the past three years, I've been meaning to do one for Nobody's Fool. Can that be a part of this year's Holiday Club? I've got most of it drafted somewhere in an email to myself.

Since the movies are bleeding into New Year's, what does anybody think about New Years Day by Henry Jaglom on New Year's Day?
