It's nearly that time of year, everyone and you know what that means... Christmas movies galore!

That's right, this year flew by so fast that we're at yet another Christmas movie season.

You might be a Home Alone fanatic or a fan of The Polar Express—um, get help if so—but there's no shortage of the movies you can watch.

If you're looking for recommendations that will help you get into the holiday cheer, look no further than Redditor agreatday248, who asked the online community:

"If you could only watch one Christmas movie this year, what would it be?"

"That one on Hallmark..."

"That one on Hallmark where the career driven woman goes back to her small hometown that has a Christmasy name and ends up falling in love with a widower. Can't remember the name."

The joke here is... that's all of them.

Every single one of them.

And some of them recycle the same actors.

"This one and the second one."

"Home Alone."

"This one and the second one. For some reason I've always liked the second one just a little more (anything after 2 doesn't exist though)."

I have a soft spot for the second one.

It's zanier and incredible.

"It was unexpectedly amazing."

"Klaus. I watched this last year! Was at a friend's house looking for Christmas movies and found it on Netflix. It was unexpectedly amazing."

Boureyn

I still need to see this one—Netflix is intent on me watching it!

"I've watched it every year..."

"Jingle All The Way. I've watched it every year for 20+ years. It's absolutely hilarious."

Well, that's one person who can sit through it.

It's not me.

"Literally the only Christmas movie..."

"Literally the only Christmas movie I watch each year, and I have it on for probably half of the 24 hour marathon. My kids hate me for it."

Flood-One

I wish I liked this one more.

I remember rolling my eyes each year during the 24 hour marathon!

"It's not Christmas..."

"Die Hard. It's not Christmas until Hans Gruber falls off Nakatomi Plaza."

I can absolutely get behind this.

The first movie is fantastic!

Not that the sequels weren't fun but to be honest... I ignore them.

"It's a Wonderful Life."

"I used to watch this with my dad every year. He loved this movie and lived his life the George Bailey would have. My dad passed away last year and I will always watch this movie at least once every holiday season."

This is truly a perfect movie.

I just might rewatch it this year.

"Gremlins. This is the only Christmas movie I absolutely need to watch or else the holiday is ruined."

ShemhezaiX

So gruesome!

So fun!

And yes, all in the spirit of Christmas.

"Watched it every Christmas..."

"Miracle on 34th Street. Watched it every Christmas with my Mom and Dad for as long as I can remember."

Another one I need to make the time for—it's been ages.

The original is wonderful and the one from the 1990s isn't half-bad either.

"The Albert Finney version..."

"The Albert Finney version of A Christmas Carol. It's been my favorite since childhood, and here I am, decades later, and I will never get tired of it."

CranberryGlade

Classic.

A must for any holiday film aficionado.

In the interest of letting people enjoy the Thanksgiving holidays, I will wait until December 1 before I pop How the Grinch Stole Christmas into the DVD player.

But trust... I am already counting the days.

Let me be real for a second.

Every time I listen to Bjork's "Unravel," my heart breaks a bit.

Have you ever listened to it?

It's on Homogenic, her third studio album, and it's incredible, passionate, smartly produced and a great showcase for her stupendous voice.

That song? An emotional rollercoaster, for sure.

There's tons of great music out there, though, and even more sad and gorgeous songs to discover.

Unfortunately, a friendship could really end at any point in life.

Friends grow apart, but also, sometimes, it's just necessary to say goodbye to your relationship with a friend.

Maybe they aren't the right type of friend for you anymore, or maybe something has happened in their lives to make them self-destructive and toxic.

The reasons are many, and they are all sad.

Certain personalities show up at almost every party like clockwork.

There's always that person who get's too drunk, someone awkwardly standing in the corner nursing a drink, the person who's not having a good time no matter what and the person babysitting the crowd they came with.

When there's alcohol—or any other substances—and the pressure of a social situation, all sorts of quirks will come out. We wanted to know what people thought their country would act like if they were a person attending a party.

Irrespective of men's sexual identity or preference, there are men who hate sports, and there are men who love musical theater. Do participating in either activity make men straight or gay?
