From the story of a reindeer who uses his special strengths to lead Santa's team to the tale of a man who learns that "no man is a failure who has friends" to the story of a child who rides a magical train to go see Santa Claus, everyone has their favorite holiday film to watch year after year.

We've assembled a list of contenders that covers everything from legends of Santa Claus to overcoming the commercialism of Christmas. The oldest is the 1946 film "It's a Wonderful Life," while the newest movie to make the cut is 2006's "The Nativity Story."

Many styles of film are represented as well, from the stop-motion animation of Rankin/Bass films like "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" to the traditional animation of "How the Grinch Stole Christmas!" and the performance capture computer animation of "The Polar Express."

And after the results came in for our poll on which "Christmas Carol" movie adaptation is the best ever, the only "Carol" version that made the cut is the 1951 film version starring Alastair Sim. (Sorry, George C. Scott and Muppet fans.)

So which movie is your favorite? Vote in our poll and we'll gather the results to share with all of you.

Make sure your top holiday movie doesn't get left behind. Have fun!
