We have Polar Express, Arthur Christmas etc, but I’m looking for something we’ll all enjoy to put in the Christmas Eve box. Any suggestions please? We do have most of the classics already and I sat through the agony of Nativity 3 last year.

Assuming you have Home Alone, the best Christmas movie ever made.

Elf
Nightmare before Christmas
The snowman

Oh how could you!!! We love Nativity 1,2 & 3 in this house.

Don’t know if I dare offer an alternative based on our film taste but we also love Elf

Scrooged with Bill Murray. Never fails to crack me up. Stapling anters to a mouse's head? Priceless!

I dont think there are new Xmas films!
The CBeebies series Arthur has a Christmas mini movie which is actually great!
And Barbies best Christmas ever (can’t recall if that’s the exact name) is a good one too.
That’s really sad of me to admit to enjoying those. 🙈

Dvd's not dad's, bloody auto correct!

Could try:

The Dog Who Saved Christmas
The Dog Who Saved Christmas Vacation
The Dog Who Saved the Holidays

DCs (8 and 4) enjoy them (the dog talks) and DH and I really enjoy picking out the plot holes, inconsistencies, re-use of the same plot over and over, and general stupidity of the movies.

My favourite is The Holiday - kids probably won’t like it though...!

elQuintoConyo Fri 03-Nov-17 21:56:22

Anabelle's Wish.

JenniferYellowHat1980 Fri 03-Nov-17 22:35:58

Muddling, that’s a fine festive collection.** Might try Scrooged.** The problem is that most look so very corny.**

Are they too young for Die Hard?

AgathaRaisonDetra Fri 03-Nov-17 22:39:19

Bad Santa. A great family movie.

Verbena37 Fri 03-Nov-17 22:42:52

The Twelve Days of Christmas Eve is a good feel good xmas movie.

JenniferYellowHat1980 Fri 03-Nov-17 22:44:01

Die Hard reminds me of my dad. He let us watch it well under 10! He put a life size cut out of Rutger Hauer as The Hitcher in our bedroom shock

Hobbes8 Fri 03-Nov-17 23:00:01

He sounds awesome! We got our first video when I was around 7 and the first film we watched was gremlins - another awesomely inappropriate Christmas film!

Gremlins or Edward scissor hands (depending on kids age) I love watching these at Christmas.

Olaf Christmas movie is coming out this month, you could maybe go to the cinema on Christmas eve to watch it.

allegretto Sat 04-Nov-17 08:54:28

Paddington? That's set at Christmas, isn't it?

feelslikearockandahardplace Sat 04-Nov-17 09:10:24

AgathaRaisonDetre you're wicked! Love that film, can't imagine watching with DC's though.
Another vote for Elf here or Santa Claus The Movie.

I love Gremlins, it was a PG anyway when it first came out so I saw it at the cinema aged about 9. My favourite Christmas movies are Elf, Home Alone, the first Nativity film and Scrooged. How about Groundhog Day? Not christmassy, but wintery and snowy, kids love it!

Get Santa is utterly brilliant.
