Are there any in particular you would recommend?

Home Alone.
I know it's a well known film but its not really associated with Christmas!
It has such a feel good Christmassy ending! We watch it every year.

Muppets Christmas Carol.

Its amazing and I won't hear a word said against it.

Home Alone is a Christmas film, surely?? confused grin

A Christmas Story - watched it as a child, I loved it. Haven't watched it since.

I'm now singing "after all there's only one more sleep til Chri-is-mas" "JubJub"

I love rom-coms like-
The holiday
The family stone
While you were sleeping

Also can't go wrong with die hard grin

'Home Alone not associated with Christmas' ????? What planet are you on?! I've even seen a Christmas card that says 'happy Christmas you filthy animal'grin

Meet Me in St Louis (also good for Hallowe'en!)

Annabelle's ish (she's a cow)

But nothing - NOTHING - beats DIE hard grin

^^ Wish, not ish!

CelibacyCakeAndElevatorMuzac Fri 24-Oct-14 14:33:32

Oh yes - Die Hard!! Truly Christmassy grin

Jingle All The Way grin.

Vastly underrated in my humble opinion. I also love Muppets Christmas Carol and Christmas With The Kranks.

SantasLittleMonkeyButler Fri 24-Oct-14 14:35:05

Oh, and Elf!

Bad Santa, but NOT to watch with the DCs. Arthur Christmas is a good family one tho.

The 1966 animated How the Grinch Stole Christmas is one of our favourites.

Quangle Fri 24-Oct-14 14:39:22

oh I love the sound of a Bishop's Wife. David Niven and Cary Grant...perfection. Must get hold of that one.

LemonDrizzleTwunt Fri 24-Oct-14 14:51:43

Oh, and the Tailor of Gloucester smile

'The Bishop's Wife' is lovely. Do not be tempted by dodgy remake 'The Preacher's Wife': even Denzel Washington as Dudley couldn't save it....

Angelto5 Fri 24-Oct-14 15:03:11

Yy defiantly gremlins.
How about trading places?

The 80's knew how to do a good Xmas film smile

Mrs Christmas with Angela Landsbury - Great for feminists and a good storyline.
Very cheap can pick up for a few quid, got ours from Morrisons.

Muppet xmas carol - still the best imo

Greatest Store in the World - it was on TV about ten years ago. A homeless family move into a dept store over Christmas.

lunar1 Fri 24-Oct-14 16:25:12

I still love one magic christmas.

NorrisCole Fri 24-Oct-14 16:39:43

I loved Christmas Mail and Lucky Christmas.

They are really cheesy but I enjoyed them grin
