Buddy the Elf, What's Your Favorite Color?: A Holiday Movie Marathon

Cinemonster's Hoop-Tober challenge (in which I had a blast taking part!) got me thinking I should continue the fall festivities with a list of films for the holiday season.

(For those interested, the notes state the reason for each film's inclusion, though in most cases the reason is obvious.)
