TBS may be playing the classic Christmas movie "A Christmas Story" for 24-hours again this year, but the holiday classic doesn't even break into the top 10 of this list. Nope, Ralphie is all the way down at number 32 on the best Christmas movies list.

So what's the best Christmas movie?

According to a poll in the Radio Times, which surveyed nearly 3,000 people, "It's a Wonderful Life," is the greatest Christmas movie of all time.

Tom Cole writes:

"Yes, Frank Capra's heart-warming story of a suicidal man inspired to carry on living by the magic of Christmas is now officially our readers' favorite festive film, having netted nearly a fifth (17.83 per cent) of the total vote."
