Who is the Kevin Bacon of Christmas movies?

It’s not a person but a TV show.

Saturday Night Live is the hub in a web of holiday films featuring cast members and hosts.

Bill Murray blazed the trail with Scrooged in 1988. Chevy Chase followed the next year with Christmas Vacation.

The omnipresent Molly Shannon has appeared in three Christmas films - the 2000 remake of How the Grinch Stole Christmas, The Santa Clause 2 and the TV movie, The Twelve Days of Christmas Eve.

Will Ferrell’s Elf is already a classic.

In a shift of both medium and attitude, Buddy’s wide-eyed innocence is counter-balanced by a more recent internet hit featuring Ferrell and John C. Reilly singing “Little Drummer Boy.”
