    I don't know about you but watching christmas films helps me get into the Christmas spirit in the run up to the 25th. Please state some films that you enjoy and usually watch at this time of year.

    To start off i'm going to be watching Elf starring Will Ferrell

    A Christmas Story
    Christmas Vacation

    For some reason I like watching the first Harry Potter movie even though the Christmas part is only a small part of the movie.

    If you aren't watching A Christmas Story on Christmas day then get out of this forum because you're doing it wrong.

    That pretty much is The Christmas movie to watch. Every year my family watches it together and this year will be no exception.

    Same for me. Love those movies, and the live-action Grinch always gets me in the holiday spirit as well.

    That sounds like some sort of porn film...

    Anyway, I usually watch whatever is on TV, the BBC isn't bad around Christmas. The original Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is always good to watch [​IMG]

    Scrooged is probably the only Christmas film I've ever enjoyed.
