The Santa Clause franchise. I loved Tim Allen in 'Tim the Tool-man' and he nailed Santa in all these movies too. Second to these would be Arnie's 'Jingle all the way'. So many parents can relate to this I'm sure !

The best Christmas Movie for me is Love Actually.

I love it because it reminds me of my caring friends and family. Love Actually came out just after marriage broke up and a girlfriend took me out to cheer me up and we saw this movie. It certainly cheered me up and now my daughter and I watch it every Christmas!
