Day 1538 - Deck the Halls

What's your favourite Christmas movie?

We have a small pile of Christmas movies that I pull out every year for family movie night in the lead up to Christmas.  And every single year the kids choose "Deck the Halls".

Staring Matthew Broderick and Danny DeVito it is a movie about an excitable new neighbour who is trying to find his fit in this small US community, while the town's original Christmas go-to man can't quite cope with the flashy, brash and over the top lengths the new resident is prepared to go to to get noticed.

After discovering "My Earth" on the computer, Buddy Hall (Danny DeVito) wants his house to be seen from outer space so he turns his house into an all singing all dancing spectacular.  We thought Chevy Chases' Christmas Vacation had the glitziest house on the planet ... it is nothing compared to this gem.

Of course Mr Original Neighbour is not at all impressed with Buddy's brashness nor the changes he is making to what was once a very traditional and peaceful community.  All sorts of rivalry, frivolity and yuletide follows which makes for quite a decent laugh-fest the whole family can enjoy.

The movie came out in 2006 and is produced by 20th Century Fox.

What's your family go-to Christmas movie?
