Deck the halls and HO HO HO! Welcome to the RetroCast Christmas special deluxe where we cover our top 10 must watch Christmas movies and tv specials that are a required viewing to make it feel like corporate America hasn’t engineered this holiday just to drive everyone into poverty out of guilt. So set the Yule Log on the tv and stick it in the fireplace, grab a mug of hot cocoa and enjoy our holiday special.
