Because you might not have the strength to kick back with a nice mug of cocoa and some of your favorite holiday classics on DVD, we've asked critic Alonso Duralde -- the author of the recent compendium 'Have Yourself a Movie Little Christmas' -- to give us the top 10 finest moments from holiday-related films.

Since we're sure you have your own faves, be sure to tell us all about them in the comments section.
