DC are 4.5 & 2 and I probably love Christmas as much as them if not more! So I'm really excited for a big Christmas film fest in December & wanted some recommendations to add to my collection...
I've got the obvious It's a Wonderrful Life, Meet Me in St Louis, White Christmas and I like The Holiday but are there any not necessarily about Christmas that still feel Christmasy? For the kids, The Snowman, Peppa Pig Christmas collection I know!, Muppets Christmas Carol - any others good for their age?

A Christmas Story - fantastic funny film for children and adults.

The Santa Clause 1,2 & 3 are required Christmas viewing in our house. The first of the Nativity! MoviesMr Poppy) and Miracle on 34th Street too.

I really love Rise of the Guardians. Not sure if it technically counts as a Christmas film, but it's got Santa in it? grin Perhaps The Grinch?

I love The Family Stone. Quite quirky and Christmassy, funny and warm and fuzzy.

Arthur Christmas
Prep and Landing is short but brilliant!

Miracle on 34th Street, but the original with Edmund Gwenn, not the sickly remake with Richard Attenborough

You really can't beat It's A Wonderful Life <gavel>

I'm spending this Christmas in hospital with my poorly youngest, but thanks to the magic of free wifi and YouTube, last night I rigged up the iPad to play it quietly on the windowsill next to my camp bed. Sometimes a good sob does you the world of good fsmile

Enchanted is glorious, but I don't know how suitable for their ages (I don't have kids).

BitOfFun hope your poorly child is well enough to enjoy Christmas and recovers soon.

I don't like Polar Express at all. It introduces "not believing" which does my nut in. Why?

Kryptonite Wed 23-Dec-15 00:03:12

The Snowman
Muppets Christmas Carol
Santa Who?
Home Alone

all firm favourites here!
