“A Christmas Story” has taken the title of Best Christmas Classic after winning by only 15 votes over Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer!

Day 3 took our final four and turned them into the top 2 finalists. “A Christmas Story” barely squeezed out a win over “It’s A Wonderful Life,” winning by just 8 votes. And in our final cartoon clash, Rudolph took the win over the mean one, Mr. Grinch.
