Christmas films and TV shows: As they happen

    Thought it would be a good idea to have a thread for Christmas films and TV shows that are on TV over the next couple of months. It's easy to miss Christmassy things at this time of year. Miracle On 34th Street (the 1973 version) is on Sony Channel at 11.40am on the 6th, so set your reminders!

    Tomorrow from 10-12 there are a few Christmas shows on Food Network. If you're not in work it's the perfect time to make some hot chocolate and dream about Christmas food! If you're in work, fear not, because there are a couple of shows on between 8pm and 9pm. Actually, looking at the TV Guide there are Christmas cooking shows on all week on Food Network at various times.

    It might be a good idea, but its October!

    True Movies - or whatever they call themselves - have had constant Christmas films on since mid-October and will continue until February. I'll be darned if I'm going to list them all.

    It's not November yet, let alone December, so give it a rest.

    Home Alone is on Film Four next Saturday at 6:55 to kick off the Christmas season

    Surely the whole rest of boards is space enough for the grinches? If you don't want to know about Christmas then why post in the Christmas Forum? I don't think its Toto that needs to give it a rest tbh.

    Can't wait for Home Alone next week!! Love this thread idea!

    Yes! Now I've had a phobia of Gremlins since I was a child. My wife has a bobble-head Gizmo that I wouldn't allow her to put on display in the house because it freaked me out so much. But I watched it again with her a few weeks ago and, while the first part of the film is pretty dark, it does get funny afterwards and so I'm going to allow it into the Christmas rotation this year.

    I may even watch Gremlins 2 :D

    Yes be a rebel Vojera!

    I remember the first time I watched it as a child. I woke up screaming that night that there was a gremlin under my bed! Still get slagged about it to this day! It was bunk beds so now I say I wasn't too wrong as my sister L was under my bed!
