Hi folks,

Yule never guess what... it's 48 days until Christmas!

We know what you're thinking... it's a bit early for turkey and Santa talk. Tbf, you're right, but we need your help!

At MNHQ, we are dying to know what Christmas films roast your chestnuts.

All you need to do is post your favourite family Christmas film on this thread. We'll track the answers and reveal the results with a Mnetters top ten video!

But wait—there’s myrrh. Did we mention that every user who contributes will be automatically entered into a prize draw to win some Mumsnet goodies? No? Well, everyone that contributes will be entered - and we'll be picking one lucky winner. So what are you waiting for?

Got to be 'Jingle All the Way' santa

Nope, 'It's a Wonderful Life' is the best.

The Polar Express is a lovely family film

Scrooge the 1970s musical

Easy...The Muppets Christmas Carol.

MustardScreams Thu 07-Nov-19 16:20:29

It’s a Wonderful Life. Christmas can’t start until we’ve watched it on Xmas eve. We like the colourised version.

Bernard and the Genie.
Richard Curtis, Alan Cumming, Rowan Atkinson, Lenny Henry. 90stastic.

Let's add some Christmassy trailers...

Arthur Christmas.

We watch it every year, multiple times. It really captures the magic without putting doubts in the kids minds.

I'm in desperate search of the light up reindeer slippers, every year I hunt and never find them sad

Miracle on 34th Street. But it's got to be the original b&w version!

Walnutwhipster Thu 07-Nov-19 16:27:28

New last year but we all loved Christmas Chronicles on Netflix.

Arthur Christmas

three pieces of sticky tape

BIWI Thu 07-Nov-19 16:28:44

... also partial to Raymond Briggs' Father Christmas here

HappyDinosaur Thu 07-Nov-19 16:29:22

Miracle on 34th Street, but not the b&w one, the newer one.

IWouldBeSuperb Thu 07-Nov-19 16:29:30

Muppets Christmas Carol is our all time fave -

But agree with pp that Christmas Chronicles has the making of a classic! And I'm not usually a fan of 'new' festive films!

EsmeeMerlin Thu 07-Nov-19 16:34:27

Elf is our favourite film. I love it.

We also really enjoyed the Christmas chronicles too last year.

KingBobra Thu 07-Nov-19 16:35:31

Muppets Christmas Carol!

izzyb6488 Thu 07-Nov-19 17:10:17

Best film for us is “the holiday”

ChristmasPuddingAllRound Thu 07-Nov-19 17:18:38

Arthur Christmas for a film but also live The Snowman and the Snow Dog santa

mnahmnah Thu 07-Nov-19 17:45:35

Home Alone, for us and the kids!

emphasisofmatter Thu 07-Nov-19 17:51:43

Home Alone, no doubts
