Indiana Jones.

Although I don't know why they prefer to put on Temple of Doom - it's the weakest of the three originals IMO.

Well obv the wizard of oz grin

I did of course intend to write "Christmassy" but since it's not a real word anyway I'll try not to care too much.

(I do care)

(but why?)

(I just do)

(it's important to spell imaginary words that way you image them to be spelled)

(shut up Trills)

Uncle Buck - perfect for the afternoon of Christmas Eve.

YY Oliver.

It was always on on Christmas eve day when I was younger.

Die Hard.

TheEagle Sat 12-Dec-15 19:28:33

All of the above, especially Oliver!

Also Stardust.

Trills Sat 12-Dec-15 19:34:03

Die Hard does not count.

Die Hard is SET AT CHRISTMAS.

Therefore it does not qualify here.

It would fall under the opposite category of "Films that happen at Christmas that are not traditionally Christmassy"

That category also includes Gremlins and Edward Scissorhands.

Little Women is borderline because they have a Christmas right at the beginning, even though time passes and the rest of it is not at Christmas.

Trills Sat 12-Dec-15 19:35:02

I am watching Stardust right now while wrapping

(and MNing and drinking red wine)

The young Dad is way better looking than our actual main character.

YerTiz Sat 12-Dec-15 19:36:24

Harry Potter (although it does have Christmas in, a bit)...

<scared of rule breaking>

TheEagle Sat 12-Dec-15 19:37:01

I may need to watch Stardust later if I can ever get DTs to sleep <weep>

Frozen

Swiss family Robinson. Even if they have a brief Christmassy moment!

Trills Sat 12-Dec-15 19:38:29

Harry Potter does have some Christmas jumpers, but since each one in theory has a WHOLE YEAR then I think it passes.

Which one(s)?

Matilda2013 Sat 12-Dec-15 19:39:30

I always associate wizard of oz with Christmas and it confuses me smile glad it isn't just me!
