There is no doubt this movie is a Classic. It just turned 30 years old this year. I remember seeing it in the movie theater, about 4 times. At the time, it was the hardest I ever laughed in movie.

The Squirrel scene, the crapper was full scene, his Christmas freak out... It all felt like family to me, and it's been a Christmas staple in our house since it came out on video.

The soundtrack is the real gem. "That Spirit of Christmas" by Ray Charles still brings tears to my eyes. "Hey Santa Claus" by the Moonglows is another Classic the movie featured.
