I-95 Listeners Share Their Favorite Holiday Movies From Childhood
JStew & Cori here... From this morning's Throwback Thursday show, and we wanted to know: What's your favorite Holiday movie or TV special from childhood?
JStew: That's a toughie. Well, first off, in 4th grade I played Charlie Brown in the school play when we did Charlie Brown's Christmas. But if I had to pick one all on my own, it's likely gotta be the Rudolph special. I mean, Yukon Cornelius is about as badass as any Christmas character could be. As opposed to the elf who wanted to be a dentist. He's obviously a big fraidy-cat. But I also pretty much love anything with stopped animation. I'm a nostalgic old softy, really.
Cori: For me, in childhood, it was The Grinch and Rudolph. Those two specials signaled to me that Christmas was near. (My family always watched The Sound Of Music a few nights before Christmas while we decorated the tree, so I recognize that as a Christmas movie, even though it doesn't really have much to do with the season.) When I was a bit of a bigger kid, the Home Alone movies kind of became some of my favorites.
A lot of you liked the same ones we did too. But let's check out the list and see who liked what.....
