?OM Holiday Top 25

What's in your Holiday Top 25? This can be a list of songs, movies, books, gifts (given and/or received), food and drinks, symbols, events, memories, or a combination of all of these AS LONG AS they are centered around the Holidays and winter. On the flipside, this list can also be a Holiday Worst 25.

Please title your post, then rank and list your entries beginning with #25 and ending with #1 as your favorite entry.
