Weird dreams

Had some weird dreams last night. I don't remember all the details, but I was visiting Mom and Dad in Iowa like I do in so many dreams. Someone got me a bicycle built for two that could change into shopping cart somehow. My sister (who's 18 in real life) was maybe 10 years old in the dream. We went to this cross between a grocery store, a mall, and an airport and had all my stuff weighed for the return trip. It seemed to be light enough, all things considered.

That's all I remember, really.

Are there any classic holiday movies or TV shows that you look forward to watching year after year? What are your all-time favorites? Are there any you simply can't stand?
I don't really like holiday movies, with the exception of "Elf." That was funny! But for the most part, Christmas movies are like Christmas music - exposed to it so much during the holiday seasons that I get really fucking tired of hearing it.

It's even worse when many of the Christmas tunes have been attached to advertisments in such a way that when I hear those tunes I hear the advertisement's filk of the song. Kinda sucks to hear a Christmas song and I suddenly think about Pine-Sol or Swiffer or something because of it.
