WPIX, Channel 11 in New York, began the tradition of a televised Yule Log on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day back in 1966. In 1989 the station decided to extinguish the log for good due to financial reasons.

But thanks again to advances in technology, we can view it here....

From 1966 to 1989 this was a tradition as closely linked to New York City as the tree at Rockefeller Center or the Radio City Christmas Spectacular.

"The True Meaning of This Thread"
The true meaning of this thread is Overlooked and possibly unknown holiday movies which are worth watching.
Worth watching means:
Movies and cartoons and TV specials which are well made and they make you feel all warm and tingly inside like you drank a big mug of magic cocoa.
Movies and cartoons and TV specials which are so terrible you can't pull your eyes away and your dreams are filled with visions of wooden angels and creepy paper mache Santas.
If you make a recommendation please add some reason as to why it's worth seeing. Just dropping a movie name is sort of useless. We're all capable of using Google to find obscure stuff we don't know anything about. What will make this thread most useful is if you add personal comments.
Again, the focus is on the overlooked and obscure and worth watching. The list at the top of the thread will be updated as movies are suggested. (And as I, woofmutt, manage to get around to it.)
