Home alone. There's something about a 10 year old defending his home against burglars using elaborate boobie traps which makes me feel festive.

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. It weaves the Christmas spirit, our aspirations and the wackiness of family into an perpetually funny movie. Never gets dated.

“Home Alone “ is truly a timeless classics movie to share with my family and friends on Christmas Day because it has childlike humour and my daughters careless behaviour.

Holiday Inn. How can you go past the likes of Fred Astaire, Bing Crosby and the music of Irving Berlin? Not to mention a complicated romantic love quadrangle and the birth of "White Christmas"

I would take my wife to see Bohemian Rhapsody as we both would love to see the movie.  Then maybe the Fantastic Beasts sequal and Robin Hood too.

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 !

"A Christmas Carol (1984)" - because it reminds you how to appreciate Christmas, how to be generous to less fortunate people and that family matters.

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!

The Grinch. "Holiday who-be what-ee?" No question, so many great one liners from the amazing Jim Carey! No? It's because he's green, isn't it?
