The 12 Scenes of Christmas, Part One


Ho, ho, ho! The holiday season is here, and what better way to remember, celebrate or just plain mock the season than through the movies? Starting today and running through Friday, I've offered "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). Please check it out, leave comments and suggest those dozens of "Geez, this one is so much better!" moments that I've not mentioned. After all, what are the holidays without a little argument?
