My vote:
Movies: all time classics, Christmas stories or simply a story taking place during the holiday season?

By the way, please capitalize Christmas in choices #1 and #5.

Sorry, I'm viewing this on a smart phone and I can only see the images and not the selections they represent. What are the choices. From what I had read I
Of the posts so far, all of the above. But mainly the movies and music.

No problem; the choices are:

1. Movies: all time classics, Christmas stories or simply a story taking place during the holiday season?

2. TV movies: plenty on TV, just sit comfortably and pick a channel.

3. Animations: share a moment with kids or just going back to childhood?

4. TV series: watch a Christmas episodes selection of your favorite TV shows.

5. Music videos: Christmas carols, Christmas tunes or any songs just referring to Christmas?

6. Video games: about Christmas or seasonal events in your favorite games?

All of the above. Also try "New Christmas Specials" and sadly "Watch the game" - there is always a football or soccer or hockey or basketball game happening on Christmas Day or Christmas Eve.
I myself had recently suggested a poll on production design of the Rankin and Bass animagic films of which the majority of them were Christmas Specials.

Initially, I was thinking about animation in general. But I guess I can split it into one more choice (like for the "live action" movie/TV): 'Animated Movies' and 'Animated TV Specials'.
Regarding games, I would prefer to focus the list only on fictional works, to stay within the framework of what is referenced on IMDB.
In this way, I have expanded the description of the list a few days ago.
But it seems to be not possible editing the original post.

"Many of us enjoys" should be "Many of us enjoy".

My choice would be “new or unseen Christmas movies”.
There is a new Christmas movie from Netflix. I’m curious about that one.

Pascal Guillen,

I updated your original post to reflect the text from your list.

I recommend changing the title from:
Christmas is coming!

To:
Christmas is Coming!

FYI:
FAQ:How to Improve the Chance of Having your Poll on the Home Page
... 6. As the editors can’t go in and tweak the headers or copy, they are looking for polls that are ready to go copy edit-wise (double quotes around TV show titles, single quotes around movie titles). They like the clever headlines (“They Do Run Run”) that make you wonder what the poll is about, but headlines that pose a (brief) question (with a question mark at the end) do perform better. (They also cue the users that it’s a poll and we want them to engage.) So they welcome question polls (along with the clever teasers). ...

Pascal Guillen,

You can still edit your list and ask for a re-push so long as you do not change the order of the choices in your list.

Please indicate when you've made the change that Jess suggested. Jess, another admin or I can re-push your poll after verifying you haven't made any changes that would cause problems.

For future please make re-push request in this thread. The first post in the thread provided guidance on what is permitted for a re-push.

Congrats. You have a bit of bad grammar in the TV option - I suggestion: watch a selection of Christmas episodes from your favorite TV shows.
