I'm a new subscriber, so just seeing this post... but must say that my family watches LOTR (extended edition) every Christmas season! Usually between Christmas and New Year's... Love this post and will revisit it in six months!

Along with the movies released in December, the speciality box set DVDs with the limited edition figures were released the year after. Got them as a gift every Christmas from 2002-2005. Makes it a Christmas movie for me!

Never forget that time that the Christmas trees all ganged up to kill the Grinch...
