I asked earlier about about everyone's favourite Christmas books, so thought I'd start a thread asking everyone what theirs and their children's favourite Christmas movies are.
Mine in the Santa Claus. So many good memories of watching it with my nan, all cosy at Christmas time. My 3 y/o dd became obsessed with home alone last Christmas.
I love being able to talk Christmas and not have eyes rolling smile

Bad Santa / Diehard

I love all the Christmas films and have loads on DVD but I do love Elf, I watched it as a child and thought it was hilarious and watch it every year.

My nearly 3 year old likes Arthur Christmas and Mickey Mouse's Once Upon a Christmas.

Elf is a family favourite here as is Arthur Christmas, my five year old watches it all year round, if he's poorly he asked for it

Santa claus the movie.

I'm showing my age now but went to see it at the cimena as a child, got the video from santa himself the next year and it's been watched every christmas eve since.

The Muppets Christmas Carol - obviously!!grin

CharminglyGawky Tue 06-Sep-16 15:34:27

Agree with muppet Christmas carol, it isn't Christmas until the muppets have been watched!

We watch it every Christmas Eve and have done for over 20 years now!

DC favourite is 'An Elfs Story, Elf on a shelf'.
I cant pick between Home Alone, Elf or Polar Express.

anyoldname76 Tue 06-Sep-16 18:21:02

my ultimate fave is national lampoons Christmas vacation, but i also love polar express, elf, muppets Christmas carol, scrooged and miracle on 34th street

MargaretCabbage Tue 06-Sep-16 18:24:05

It's A Wonderful Life. I watch it every year, at least once.

orenisthenewblack Tue 06-Sep-16 18:35:03

Miracle on 34th Street no contest. The most recent one with the real Santa in it. You know, Santa who speaks all languages cod he's magic.

HandbagCrazy Tue 06-Sep-16 20:21:16

Muppets Christmas carol here, although home alone (1&2), Elf and Miracle on 34th street are close runners up.

I also have a real soft spot for the not-so-great one like the Tim Allen Santa Claus movies, The Holiday, Deck The Halls etc blush

This Christmas, I love Loretta Devine, she's an amazing actress and totally makes this film for me.

TeaMeBasil Tue 06-Sep-16 20:32:39

National lampoons Christmas vacation for no 1!

A Christmas Story - Dixie, is that the one with Ralphie, the Bebe gun and the leg lamp?!! Saw that years ago and it was great, never pops up on Christmas tv here tho (uk)

Loyly Tue 06-Sep-16 20:39:48

I love any and every Christmas movie/TV show I can find. Utterly, unashamedly obsessed. grin

Favourite:
Double-bill DVD of Home Alone and Home Alone 2: Lost In New York.

My other much adored Christmas film is a made-for-TV movie called The Mistle-Tones. It's a sugary sweet Christmassy romance starring Tia Mowry. I just love it.

Ladybirdturd Tue 06-Sep-16 20:46:10

I can't choose between white christmas, Elf or the family man for me.

My favourite tv movies are the Christmas shoes and mrs miracle.

Dc love the grinch, arthur christmas and muppets Christmas Carol. I will be introducing them to the polar express this year.

DH loves Jack Frost

WhispersOfWickedness Tue 06-Sep-16 21:14:39

Miracle on 34th street, but also have a special place in my heart for Christmas with the Kranks because I make DH watch it every year and we both know that is exactly what our Christmases are going to be like in 15 years when the DC have left home grin
