An angel shows George that he really did have a wonderful life, and all his friends chip in enough dough to cover the missing money.

The Grinch hears the Whos singing, his heart grows three sizes, and he brings back all the Christmas presents.

Rudolph's mockery-magnet of a nose is the only thing that can get Santa's sleigh through the Christmas fog.

The Powers that Be make it snow in Sunnydale, foiling Angel's suicide-by-dawn plot and proving that he's got a place in the world.

More?

Maybe Fred Gailey didn't do such a wonderful thing after all.

the two Asian Howard Cosells
Two brothers: one speaks no English, the other learned English from watching "Wide World of Sports." So I ask you, which is worse: speaking no English at all, or speaking like Howard Cosell?

True, but they both wore the same Wide World Of Sports announcer clothing as Howard Cosell, so even though the other brother spoke no English, he could still be considered a Cosell-ite

personally, i think speaking only Howard Cosell is worse ;)

Sam Kinison shows Al Bundy how wondeful other people's lives would be without him in it.

The miracle was Kinison's performance in the role.

Charlie and his bookie try to call Elaine, but reach the Bagel shop instead. Kramer (in between racial epithets) tells them she'll be at the Festivus celebration at Frank and Estelle's he's just leaving for, and brings them along.

Yes, but he learns the true meaning of Christmas, and his friends realize that perhaps his little tree wasn't so puny after all- it just needed a little love.

Santa Claus reveals that Frosty was made out of Christmas snow, and he's all right after all. Frosty helps Santa on Christmas Eve, promising Karen he'll be back on Christmas Day.

After reading Pinky's Christmas letter, the Brain has a change of heart and decides not to take over the world- at least for tonight.

Even though Homer blew all his money at the racetrack, it's still a Merry Christmas after all- they have a new dog!

Billy Ray and Louis outsmart the Duke Brothers by selling short on orange juice futures, and not only send the Duke Brothers into bankruptcy, but send Clarence Beeks off to mate with gorillas.

(Well, the events take place at Christmas and New Year, so it's a Christmas movie in my eyes)

Come on, folks! The United States Postal Service delivers all their Santa mail to Mr. Kris Kringle, who's currently on trial, thus inadvertently exonerating him!

Hey, no 3-fers. You should have at least hinted whether when filmed he had very little hair, almost no hair, or was as bald as a cueball with plugs...

On My So-Called Life there was a Christmas episode where this homeless girl was a squatter and Angela learned an important lesson about life. Then the girl kicked off this mortal coil. Beautiful episode until they showed a shot from above and literal flutter of wings at the side of the frame.

People don't become angels. Grrr.

Maybe somebody rung a bell at the time. Because every time a bell rings, an angel gets its wings!

The Santa actor and the midget rob the store, Santa fucks the bartender's brains out, the fat kid gets his ass kicked. Santa finds a heart of gold, the midget gets his, the fat kid kicks ass.

The German squad surrenders to the American squad after many false starts. Something goes terribly wrong when Mother shows up, the Germans all get killed, as does Father. They transport his body back masquerading as medics. The captain (John C. McGinley) reams their asses.

Army buddies open a resort and are wildly successful as singers and dancers. In a variation of this film, two army buddies rescue a financially troubled resort owned by their retired general and are wildly successful as singers and dancers. Both end with "White Christmas" and star pretty much the same people.

At the Christmas Court at Chinon in 1183, none of the family members (Henry, his estranged wife Eleanor, and their sons Richard, Geoffrey and John) actually kills any of the others.

Santa also survives being shot nine times by the police in front of the neighbor kids and is able to deliver a blood soaked velveteen elephant (my absolute favorite Christmas movie).

It's fiction. If the author says they do, they do.

Huey Freeman's "The Adventures of Black Jesus," is performed as scripted, unchanged (his teacher does get fired for generally being an irresponsible white person, though). Jazmine discovers that Santa really does exist. Riley... um... Riley gets next year to try to make Santa pay what he owes.

Well, if you can deal with another nitpick, all that stuff happened after New Years' Eve. The only event that fits the thread was Layne's dad fixing the garage door, which mom declared a Christmas miracle seconds before Layne backed the car out and pulverized the door.

----------------------

Dad comes home on furlough, bringing a can of German jam, which Mum insists must have been poisoned because "they know we're mad on jam!" They all have some, except Sis, who claims it's not patriotic, and it's not poisoned after all.

The schoolteacher gets her memory back and discovers that she's really a spy.

The waitress realizes that having a stalker is romantic if he sneaks into your bedroom to leave you a Christmas tree.

A "fun old-fashioned family Christmas" is planned. Parents show up, as does an obnoxious cousin and his family, and a dotty old aunt who has gift-wrapped her cat. Many merry mixups ensue. In the end, the true meaning of Christmas is revealed. Sorta.
