Watching Love Actually whilst Wrapping presents, drinking baileys eating mince pies and the odd weep into a kleenex

We love The Polar Express - it's a warm family friendly movie with that Christmassy feel. Love the reindeer and elves and the train journey to the North Pole. We all love to sit on the sofa with a blanket and watch it together as a family.

Ahhh... the trailer for Charlie Brown brought back all kids of childhood memories.

Elf for me grin

DontTellTheBride Thu 19-Nov-15 14:36:07

Oh, and why? Because Elf makes me cry with laughter.

"Santa?" "I KNOW HIM!!!!"

Elf is a classic - still funny after all these years!

A weirder one is Kenneth Branagh's Hamlet. I used to watch it on Christmas Eve to help me fall asleep...well, it is four hours long...

Elf for me too. And I'm with dont "SANTAAAAA" is the reason why.

The Muppets Christmas Carol - somehow when Tiny Tim is a small puppet frog it gets me every time! Also loads of really funny lines from Gonzo and Rizzo the rat - DH and I still quote them at each other.

Home alone (All of them) - They just have that ability to get you in the festive mood ;)

CalorieTowers Thu 19-Nov-15 15:06:12

Oh gosh, Home Alone is a real family favourite in our house - my son is a big fan of slapstick humour and has been hankering to watch it since the summer but I'm trying to save it for at least the 1st December when I can crack open the Baileys as well without feeling guilty in the slightest!

spaghettiWeston Thu 19-Nov-15 15:13:35

The Family Man - with Nicolas Cage, playing himself, as usual, but that's not always a bad thing. wink

It's sentimental and schmaltzy and a wee bit predictable - in short, everything you want in a Christmas film!

thevegetablesarecatered Thu 19-Nov-15 15:27:33

Love Actually, for the polo-necks and Elf, for reasons that surely don't need elaborating! SANTAAAAAAAAAAA santa

Home alone!! The whole family loves it!!

jaye44 Tue 24-Nov-15 10:30:36

Polar Express, anything with Tom Hanks in and great effects as well as a good story.

Funthing29 Tue 24-Nov-15 11:38:17

Miracle on 34th Street as the young girl in it is beyond adorable and it is a real family treat to watch over the holiday season.

Jojot1 Tue 24-Nov-15 12:50:36

Fav films Home Alone and The Grinch !

muddledsheep Tue 24-Nov-15 12:54:39

A wonderful life - simply because it's gloriously Christmassy and feel good fgrin

CleanHankie Tue 24-Nov-15 12:59:16

Santa Claus: The Movie - the one with Dudley Moore. Always watched this as a kid with my sister and undoubtedly has the most cutest reindeer ever in it.

GeraldineFangedVagine Tue 24-Nov-15 13:00:40

Elf of course! I eat syrup exclusively myself ;)

Yokohamajojo Tue 24-Nov-15 13:03:24

I just loved National Lampoon's Christmas vacation and recently watched it with the kids, 6 and 8 and they thought it was funny too :-)

tedmundo Tue 24-Nov-15 13:19:13

Scrooged was the most loved Christmas film in our house as kids.

When they are discussing the problem of gluing antlers to the mouse ..."have you tried staples?"


Can't wait for the Peanuts movie. I have a ds called Linus and I am hoping to finally get some merchandise with his name on!

turtlegoescanada Wed 25-Nov-15 13:26:38

The Muppet Christmas Carol! We rewatch it as a family every year and sing along with the songs. "There goes Mister Humbug, there goes Mister Grim..."

WrenNatsworthy Wed 25-Nov-15 14:49:13

Love Actually. Accompanied with Gingerbread and present wrapping.

I'm a HUGE Snoopy fan, fingers crossed very tightly!

dingit Wed 25-Nov-15 14:58:17

Nativity. The story, music and the children.

scrappydappydoo Wed 25-Nov-15 15:06:09

Good grief! Can't enter the competition as I'm not available but on this thread it has to be A Charlie Brown Christmas! When Linus tells the Christmas story at the end...snoopy dancing - it's a classic!
