This week we are asking,

"What is your favorite holiday movie or TV special?"

Choices range from "A Charlie Brown Christmas" and "The Grinch" to "Die Hard" and "Gremlins," and readers are encouraged to write in their own choices not listed in the online poll.

See attached chart for results from last week's On The Line poll in which most respondents favored "Merry Christmas" over other holiday greetings. We also received one write-in vote for "Festivus" from "Seinfeld."

Participation in On The Line polls is free and anonymous. You must visit to take our latest poll.

Results appear first in The Courier-Gazette and are published online each Thursday morning at 11 a.m. You can also access polls by clicking On The Line in the upper left corner of our home page.

For more information email Dan Dunkle at or call 594-4401 ext. 122.

Editor's note: On The Line polls are not scientific samplings of local opinion, but they do offer readers an opportunity to share their views online and in the newspaper.
