A Nightmare Before Christmas
Elf
A Christmas Story
Christmas Vacation
It's a Wonderful Life
Polar Express

Polar Express, in particular, has become a true family favourite over the years.

Charlie Brown will always be one of my favorites, but I also really enjoyed the Tonic Sol-Fa Christmas show that I saw years ago on PBS. They're an interesting a cappella voice and percussion group from the Twin Cities area of Minnesota.

Here's "King of Glory."

Mmm? eh? what ?

Still thinking about how I'm going to prepare the chicken (we decided we aren't crazy about turkey, and I can no longer eat anything dry.

So, hadn't really thought about it but it's a good question, so I got the Radio Times out to see what's on.

Certainly after 10, anything I like as Nanny Jane (and the new cat) will be fast aslaeep as she is right now (9.35).

Xmas eve : Probably "Martin's Close" - 10.00 - the MR James ghost story with Peter Capaldi.

Xmas day, the Duchess (Kiera Knightley and Ralph Feinnes) 10.10.

Boxing Day : 6.20 Wurzel Gummidge with Mckenzie Crook. then Paddington 2,

11.00 - Florence Foster Jenkins with Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant.

uhhh - Men in Black 3 is on channel 4 at 7.10. Better make some space on the Sky box!

I was wondering if anyone would mention Die Hard. That's something that comes up every year ... is it or is it not a Christmas movie.

Is Gremlins a Christmas movie?

The Jim Carey version of "How the Grinch Stole Christmas." Then of course the old classics from the 70's as mentioned earlier in this thread: Rudolph, Frosty, etc. Love 'em!!!

Wow! I think it's amazing how all of those old hand drawn/painted cartoons were done.

Welcome to the AGF, Kent.

I've never seen the Jim Carey version but that original was great.
