Gather round and grab a cup of nog-- it's time for part two of "The Twelve Scenes of Christmas," up at RogerEbert.com! From Nick and Nora to Gizmo and Stripe (along with Claudette Colbert, Joseph Cotten, and Dick Powell), there's something for everyone under the tree.

"12 Scenes of Christmas" at RogerEbert.com, a cinephilic advent calendar full of memories and moments that relate in some way to Christmas (although almost none of them are officially "Christmas" films, which I think is part of the fun).
