Movies that don't question "belief"?

    If like to watch some Christmas movies with the kids this year but it seems that most of the storylines revolve around adult or kids characters questioning their beliefs in Santa.

    Can anyone recommend films where this is not part of the theme?

    I'm thinking The Snowman as one but what about others?

    Can't have Elf, the Santa Clause etc.

    Kids are ages 4 and 8

    Thanks in advance.

    The Muppets A Christmas Carol is one of my all time favourites!

    Arthur Christmas would be a good one. IIRC theres no doubt/questioning of Santas existence in that one.

    Santa Claus the movie? Dudley Moore, John Lithgow one in case there has been a remake since.

    The Home Alone films? There's not anything Santa-ish in them, just burglary and the occasional iron to the face. :pac:

    I'm sure the 8 year old would be grand with them, I don't know about your younger one!

    opening scene of this one has a letter from a little girl asking if Santa is actually real.

    Frozen
    Paddington
    The Star
    Beethoven Christmas
    Jack Frost
    Deck the halls with Danny Devito is gas.
    You can't beat Home Alone.

    The Muppets Christmas Carol
    The Grinch (I think - the original 60's animation, not the newer versions).

    I would say though, most kids Christmas movies might have "questioning" Santa as a theme but in general they are "prove" that Santa is real. Elf is a good example of that. Same with Miracle on 34th St, the Santa Claus etc.

    The worst though without fail is the Santa Clause with Tim Allen
