What's the best Christmas movie- EVER???

There's a tie for America's favorite Christmas movie of all time . . . so we need YOU to weigh in and break it.  More than 1,200 Americans were given 20 Christmas movies and TV specials, and asked to name their favorite.  In the end, "A Christmas Story" and "It's a Wonderful Life" tied for #1, both with 9% of the vote. 

Here's the Top 12:


1.  A tie between "A Christmas Story" and "It's a Wonderful Life", 9%


3.  A tie between "Home Alone" and "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation", 7%


5.  A four-way tie between "Elf", "How the Grinch Stole Christmas", "Miracle on 34th Street", and "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer", 5%


9.  A four-way tie between "A Charlie Brown Christmas", "A Christmas Carol", "Nightmare Before Christmas", and "The Polar Express", 4%



(You can check out all the results, here.  It's worth noting that the 1998 gem "Ernest Saves Christmas" was somehow NOT provided as an option, so there is a possibility it could've eclipsed both "A Christmas Story" and "It's a Wonderful Life".)
