Everyone has a favorite Christmas movie. Me? National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. But did you know your favorite Christmas movies can tell your age? A company called Christmas Lights Etc. did a survey asking people about their favorite Christmas movies, and then they broke it down by age group, and at least for me, it's pretty spot on.

Here are the favorite movies by age group:

  • 60 plus
    • Miracle on 34th Street (1947)
    • It's a Wonderful Life (1946)
    • White Christmas (1954)
  • 50 to 59
    • It's a Wonderful Life (1946)
    • How the Grinch Stole Christmas (1966)
    • A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965)
  • 40 to 49
    • A Christmas Story (1983)
    • A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965)
    • National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (1989)
  • 30 to 39
    • National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (1989)
    • Home Alone (1990)
    • Elf (2003)
  • 30 and under
    • How the Grinch Stole Christmas (I assumed this was the Jim Carrey version but they didn't specify)
    • A Christmas Story (1983)
    • Home Alone (1990)
