There are so many Christmas movies and we all have our favorites. There are those that are in black and white that date back nearly one hundred years ago, Like Babes in Toyland, A Christmas Carole, Miracle on 34th Street and It's a Wonderful Life. There are also Christmas movies that came out in the last few years.

Now as far as us here in the Garden State, what is our favorite Christmas movie? Let me first say I have not seen this movie but I will this week. I'm a fan of Emilia Clarke from her "Game of Thrones" days and she stars in this's "Last Christmas". This is New Jerse3y's favorite Christmas YOU agree?
