These are the scenes that make us wish Christmas lasted all year long. It doesn't matter how many times we watch them, they make us laugh, bring a tear, or make us long for family every time. They are the most classic Christmas scenes of all time.

It's A Wonderful Life

Of course we have to start with It's A Wonderful Life. No movie has ever caused more tears, or Jimmy Stewart impressions.

A Christmas Story

Seriously, which one should I choose from a Christmas Story? The whole movie is nothing but a stream of classic Christmas scenes. So, it's the tongue to the flagpole scene. Don't try this yourself, especially not on the ski lift. If it's cold enough, your tongue will stick.

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

It's a different, but hilarious take. He's just blousing.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

What's this? A Nightmare Before Christmas is very untraditional, but still a feast for the senses.

The Grinch Who Stole Christmas

The whole time we're thinking, "What a jerk!" There never has been a better redemption story. Well done, Doc!

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
