[What could there possibly be about Christmas that needs to be "saved"? Christmas isn't dead, not by a long shot. But when in the movies Santa Claus is in trouble, Christmas is in trouble and must be "saved." If bogeys or other circumstances prevent Santa from delivering the presents on Christmas Eve, there will be no Christmas because, as far as the movies are concerned, generally speaking, Santa IS Christmas. Explore 53 reasons for saving Christmas in this lighthearted collection of 228 films (over half of which are animated) from theatrical releases to television movies and specials to episodes of television series. The reasons for saving Christmas just may surprise you.]
