Bar Bulletin question: What is your favorite holiday movie or song?


"As a parent of two elementary age kids, there is no shortage of Christmas movies in my house. My favorite Christmas movie by far, though, is ‘The Muppet Christmas Carol.’ No one tells the classic story of Ebenezer Scrooge and Tiny Tim like Gonzo and Rizzo the Rat. Make sure you watch this movie this year. You won’t be disappointed."

"‘Gremlins’ (1984). The perfect mix of comedy and horror around the holidays ... and a reminder of what could go wrong when you try to buy the ‘perfect gift.’ Who could forget America’s favorite Mogwai, Gizmo, zipping through the mall in a Barbie car to save the town from a bunch of Gremlins gone wild? All because of Billy’s failure to follow three simple rules. (Never feed them after midnight ... can you remember the others?) Not to over-analyze it, but ‘Gremlins’ is also a brilliant satire of hyper-consumerism around the holidays. Classic on every level."

"My favorite Christmas movie is ‘Prep & Landing’ — short, clever and funny. My favorite Christmas song is ‘Go Tell It on the Mountain/Mary Had a Baby’ by Vanessa Williams. All of her Christmas music — with its jazz, rhythm and blues and gospel influences — is fantastic, but this song is particularly joyful."

"Like most, I love the holiday season, the lights, the decorations, but most of all I love Christmas music. My favorite: ‘Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!’ OK, I am from Buffalo … however, for me it is more about where this song transports me: stuck in a cozy cabin, during a blustery storm, enjoying a crackling fire with my loved ones ... and not having a care in the world. Now that sounds like an amazing night."
