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."

TobeyMagu1re

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.

Comedy is in a very tricky place right now.

There is so much to NOT laugh about in this world.

In truth, many of us have forgotten how to laugh.

And certain jokes that are told, make people afraid to laugh.

So what do we do?

We tell inappropriate jokes apparently.

Let's hear some...

Life can change in an instant.

It can always change for the better.

Just ask any lottery winner.

Sadly, life can also take a turn for the worst and leave people shattered beyond repair.

Watching someone's life fall apart in a short amount of time is difficult.

You have to wonder if there really is such a thing as karma, bad luck, or Voodoo.

Redditor OkImagination5852 wanted to hear about the times we've been witness to personal disaster. They asked:

"People who witness a person's life crumble in a single day, what happened?"
