Are there any films that you always watch at Christmas - either films with a Christmas theme, or ones that you associate with Christmas from your childhood?

Home Alone and Home Alone 2 are a must. I’ve occasionally come back to Love Actually too. Jingle All The Way is a guilty pleasure kink.gif
I’m keen to watch Bad Moms Christmas again this year so hopefully that gets put up on Sky at some point.

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation is a must for me. Home Alone 2 (for some reason - I think its Tim Curry) I prefer it to Home Alone (although I like that one too - McCauley Culkin is just the cutest child actor ever).

I'll watch any of the Christmas Carol/Scrooge outings (although the very best, for me, is the made for TV one with George C Scott as Ebeneezer Scrooge)

There's an old Robert Mitchum one as well - A Holiday Affair which I'll root out on youtube (its fab).

Four Christmases
Deck The Halls
Christmas With The Kranks
The Holiday

^I love my trashy Christmas comedies haha x

Elf
The Polar Express
Love Actually
The Snowman/The Snowman & The Snowdog (if either count)

Oops I've done none so far, time to start playing catch up kink.gif

Arthur Christmas/the Nativity films are also solid but I don't watch them every year haha

The new Grinch will probs become a staple for me as well, cos its so short and an easy watch and it's so cute & christmassy at the same time <3

Home Alone 1 and 2 - Absolute classics and I'm over the moon that my 5 year old sat down to watch the first one with me the other day, found it hilarious and is now asking to watch the 2nd one.

The Muppets Christmas Carol - I love everything about it. The humour, the music and it just feels like Christmas. It's perfect.

Love Actually - Watched it last night. It's so lovely. And Emma Thompson gets me in the feels every time.

Rise of the Guardians - My little boy was watching it on Netflix and I got totally engrossed in it. It's so good!

I feel like A Christmas Prince has potential to become a perennial classic for me
