We love a Friday Night DVD night, and in the run up to Christmas it has to be a Christmas films.
Our favourites that we already have are;

Miracle on 34th street,

Home Alone,
What am I missing from my must watch Christmas film collection?

I've spent all afternoon on the Christmas board and I've noticed you're my kind of woman 70 grin

Today I was too busy for festive stuff as I was educating DS about Labyrinth and the wonder that is David Bowie!

Anyone know when the christmas movie channels start? I love all the cheesy made for tv films. They're normally about a single man/woman who has suffered some tragedy that means they hate christmas. Then they normally meet lots of inspirational people, fall in love and learn the true meaning of christmas - there's usually some cute kids involved somewhere.

You're missing the best one. It used to be on every year when I was little but they stopped it.

I think it's called Santa clause or the Santa clause. I think Dudley Moore is in it.

An old man is lost in the snow in olden times, discovering he is destined to become the next Santa. The years go by and an elf gets out and gives everyone a lolly sprinkled with the dust that makes the reindeer fly.

There's also the family stone and the nightmare before Christmas.

Mcbear that's Santa Claus the movie - and I now have the song in my head hmm
The santa claus is the one with Tim allen who kills santa so automatically beomes the next one

Definitely Muppet Xmas Carol and It's A Wonderful Life and I second the vote for the grownups to watch Bad Santa which is a really funny film. Would also add White Christmas, the granddaddy of them all. And Frosty The Snowman, which used to be shown every year back in the 70s. Jimmy Durante rocks.

Home Alone: Lost In New York, plus I now really love Christmas with the Kranks. The Holiday is a good adult one too.

KissMyFatArse Thu 21-Aug-14 21:41:37

Home alone, jingle all the way, the Santa Claus x

ILikeToClean Thu 21-Aug-14 21:45:47

Elf is the best, followed by Home Alone but DH always makes us watch National Lampoons Christmas Vacation, which I moan about but secretly quite enjoy.

ASpiderInTheBath Thu 21-Aug-14 21:52:02

There's a lovely one about the reindeer Prancer but not sure what it's called - could be Prancer?confused

I loved the Snowman and the Snowdog last year.

Also a recent one is The Nativity, it's a comedy with Martin Freeman, funny in a cheesy way but some real laugh-out-loud bits, the kids thought it was hilarious.

And Frozen (disney) is quite Christmassy I suppose what with all the snow.

oh, Elf on a Shelf if you have little ones too.

ASpiderInTheBath Thu 21-Aug-14 21:52:38

Oh yes cider, The Holiday is lovely.

McBear Thu 21-Aug-14 21:53:58

Sorry! shock I don't remember a song blush

Love actually too of coursesmile

ASpiderInTheBath Thu 21-Aug-14 21:54:07

Also depending on the age of your dc there's Santa Paws which is really sweet (disney).

hugoagogo Thu 21-Aug-14 21:58:32

Obviously-Muppet Christmas carol

The Santa Clause 1, 2 and 3 grin

Elf!

It's a wonderful life

and don't forget most important Gremlins!

I also love the Holiday, but don't tell anyone

starlight1234 Thu 21-Aug-14 22:01:44

I was going to say Polar express...

It isn't Christmas till we have watched it

There's a lovely funny film called Bernard and the Genie, with Alan Cummings, Lenny Henry and Rowan Atkinson. It was on TV years ago but you can get it on YouTube or on Dvd from eBay.
