You're sure to be reminded of the true meaning of Christmas with Charlie, Snoopy and the rest of the gang in "A Charlie Brown Christmas." If you don't watch the show, then you at least need to pick up the soundtrack and maybe save a little tree while you're at it.

Join little Rudolph on his adventure in the North Pole in "Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer." Oh, and don't forget to leave carrots and cookies by the fireplace for Santa and his reindeer on Christmas Eve.

Don't remember how Frosty came to life? You clearly haven't seen "Frosty the Snowman" for a while. Or heard the song for that matter. But we'll give you a hint, "There must have been some magic in that old..." you can probably figure out the rest for yourself.

After you catch up with the original "Frosty," check out "Frosty's Winter Wonderland." Will he find a wife and happiness? You need to see for yourself to find out.

It's funny how Scrooge isn't nearly as mean and the ghosts aren't quite as spooky when they're in the Mickey Mouse version of "A Christmas Carol." But it's still a great alternative to reading the Charles Dickens novel and will certainly get you in the spirit of the season.

Join Miss Piggy, Kermit and the rest of the Sesame Street gang for their Christmas celebration in "A Muppet Family Christmas" -- and then try to top their celebration with your own family.

Who could forget the wood-carved characters in "Santa Claus is Comin' to Town?" This definitely tops the list of the must-see Christmas classics.

If you love Shrek on a regular day, then you'll love him even more when he's dressed up as Santa in "Shrek the Halls."

In "The Year Without a Santa Claus," Santa's not feeling too hot so he decides to take some time off. Hopefully this year's not one of those years -- we need him more than ever to make up for the current failing economy.
