For me it has to be Love Actually. I like the story/music/reminds me of my childhood and I love the way it counts down the weeks to Christmas!

“Jingle all the way” and “deck the halls” have been added to the 80’s and 90’s list with the kids taking the reigns. National lampoons Christmas vacation is first place though for me with it’s a wonderful life (B&w) version for when it’s just me and the wifey

Am I the only person who hates Love Actually? Anyway the best Xmas movie will always be Home Alone by far. I might watch Arthur Christmas again this year which was a pleasant surprise for me last Xmas.

Its a wonderful life & Christmas Vacation are my two mainstays no matter what. After that its the likes of home alone & scrooged with the kids.

But one film I also like to watch in the run up is 'The Family Man' with Nicholas Cage & Tea Leoni. Not really an out & out christmas film but it starts & ends at Christmas & there's something really nice about it & how basically having kids can completely change your life... definitely worth a look IMO.

The Bishops Wife is good

I don't know how to download movies, some of these m4tv full movies are on youtube...

12 Men of Christmas

Love at the Christmas Table
Eat, Play, Love

These look ok, but haven't seen them yet:

The Wish List

Fallen Angel
Harvest Love

Not A Christmas movie, but there is alot of snow (and it's very cute!), if you haven't seen it yet, Snow Dogs with Cuba Gooding Jr is delightful.

True Xmas will be showing 1980s TV movie "I'll be Home for Christmas" this week on Tuesday 24th & Saturday 28th.

The film is set during World War II and the cast list includes a young Courtney Cox.
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0095347/

It's rather different in tone to the usual Hallmark movies, while still evoking Christmas time.

I watched about half of A Wedding Date last night. Awful movie. Couldn't watch the rest.

Going to watch another one tonight. No idea what one though.

My favourite is and always will be national lampoon's Christmas vacation
