Writer's Block: B.Y.O.B. Holidays

What is your must-see holiday movie? One random answer will win a $50 Amazon gift card. [Details here]
My family has enjoyed many different Christmas classics together over the years - White Christmas, Holiday Inn, It's a Wonderful Life, Miracle on 34th Street, A Christmas Carol in its many incarnations, etc. We usually will see one or more of these this time of year. But the one film we always watch together over the holidays without fail(even if it's over the phone when we can't be together) is Where Eagles Dare. It's Clint Eastwood and Richard Burton in a gripping, action-packed tale of espionage behind enemy lines in Nazi Germany. Nothing like a little mayhem to go along with your peace on earth! I'm not entirely sure where this tradition started or how long we've been keeping it, but it's ours and that film always makes it feel like holidays and home to me.
