Buzz In: When Do You Start Watching Holiday Movies?

December is just a few days away, which means the world of pop culture will officially take a turn for the merry. November dabbles in holiday stuff, but next month is where it really all begins. Growing up, I always considered Thanksgiving to be the kickoff point for watching holiday movies, but these days the fun seems to start even earlier (e.g., A Christmas Carol has been playing for weeks).

I have some friends that refuse to watch anything holiday-related when it's not in season, and others that don't care for festive entertainment at all. Where do you fall in the ranks? Do you have certain movies that you always start with and others that are saved for later in December?

Oh, and if you have strong feelings about holiday movies, be sure to check out my hot new faceoff gamethere's an awesome prize package at stake!

Usually we start watching Christmas movies the weekend after Thanksgiving. It's a nice tradition.

Not until Black Friday. For me, Black Friday-Christmas Eve are the best time of year with all the holiday cheer :)

I only deliberately watch the Elf every holiday season. I'll watch other movies if they are on TV, but don't go out of my way to catch them. But there's no way I'd watch anything holiday/christmas related before Thanksgiving. Although I prefer to save the holiday cheer for after December 1st.

As soon as possible! I love love love Christmas movies. They always make me yearn for snow and days off like when I was a kid.
