1. Miracle On 34th Street
This beloved 1947 tale of a Macy's parade Santa who goes on trial and ends up being legally declared to be the real Kris Kringle (Thanks, US Postal Service!) is a delight from start to finish, with an all-star cast including Edmund Gwenn, Maureen O'Hara, and young Natalie Wood. Romance, legal drama, and holiday goodness abound, and the "surprise" ending will leave you chanting Susan's mantra too: "I believe!"
