    Christmas movies/traditions..

    Do you have a movie that you typically like to watch every year at Christmas time? Not necessarily a Christmas movie, but just any movie that you watch. It has become a tradition for my wife and I to watch Commando on Christmas eve. Not exactly a holiday cheer kind of movie, but hey...

    No programming language is perfect. There is not even a single best language; there are only languages well suited or perhaps poorly suited for particular purposes.

    Nothing particular on Christmas, but I usually watch the Planet of the Apes marathon on New Years eve.

    The first one I liked - not sure if I could sit through all of the sequels though.

    Normally I eat as many different animals as possible until it's uncomfortable to move.

    Generally our required movie list for Christmas is It's a Wonderful Life, A Christmas Story, Christmas Vacation, and Scrooged. Unfortunately, this year I haven't got around to watching any of them, yet.

    A Christmas Story is pretty popular at our house. One of our other cool traditions is going to the dollar store and find the ugliest thing and exchanging them as a joke. What kinds of food do you guys usually eat? At my house it is always Polish food.

    In Sweden it's almost law on watching Donald Duck, broadcasted at 15:00 the 24th on SVT1 (swedish television). It's the same episodes shown for the last 50 years, everyone is dead tired of them but if you don't watch you're a heretic.
