Who has movies they watch every Christmas that aren't really too Christmasy or classic but they get you in the mood?

For DH and me its:

The American President
You've Got Mail

What are yours?

DH also likes Its a Wonderful Life but he watches that alone because I hate it (waits for outcries...)

Every year I watch my Tim Burton box set so the nightmare before Christmas (but that is Christmassy obviously) peewee herman, corpse bride and beetlejuice on Christmas Eve.

Oh and The Holiday.. I love that film!

The Great Escape is definitely of the season, I remember watching that on boxing day lots. I used to love boxing day as a kid, nothing to do (nothing open) except watch the bbc afternoon movie in pjs and snack on leftovers! Tbh I still do this but the big film isn't such a thing as there are so many channels to choose from now.
