This is the time of year when we all gather to watch our favorite Christmas and holiday movies.

So, what Christmas movies are New Yorkers watching?

Then, you have an apparent lack of appreciation for non English speaking cultures trying to celebrate Christmas. Feliz Navidad?

Trust us, we've heard worse.
