Santa at the movies

Favorite Christmas Movie

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and we want to know: which Christmas or holiday movie is the most beloved?

We’ve created a bracket to figure it out, but we need you to weigh in. We’ll start with a field of 64 movies. Every few days, you can vote for the winners of a bracket match-up until the champion has been crowned.

Click on the tabs above to choose the appropriate round. We'll take 24 hours between rounds while we tally the results and set the next round. Come back each round to make your votes count — unlike most polls, you can vote more than once. Just click on the round (“Round 1,” “Round 2,” etc.) and follow the prompts.

Please fill out your name, email address and the USA Today Network-Wisconsin community where you live or the one that is nearest to you.

Before you submit your results, be sure to predict which movie will win it all!
