Top Ten Christmas Films Ever!

Christmas Eve already!
Once the shopping and wrapping and peeling and preparing's done, there's nothing like settling down with the family to watch a wonderful Christmassy film.
Here's my Top Ten:
Miracle on 34th Street
The wonderful story of a little girl who comes to believe in Santa in the most unusual way - through a court case! Both versions are great, but Mara Wilson and Richard Attenborough swing it for me.

Love Actually
Love at Christmas, this is a chocolate box full of stories, with romance, heartbreak, pathos and happy endings (mostly) all round.

The Snowman
Needs no introduction - a classic.

Father Christmas
Briggs' more humorous take on grumpy old Santa

While You Were Sleeping/Meet Me in St Louis
Bundled together, as neither are specifically Christmas films, but Judy's Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas is just divine, while lonely Sandra Bullock's tale of the joy of finding a family at Christmas - in the most unusual way - is full of the Christmas spirit.

Santa Claus the Movie
A favourite from my childhood, Dudley Moore's elf tries to beat Santa at his own game - with disastrous consequences.

The Santa Clause
One little accident means that Tim Allen's Christmases will never be he same again!

Arthur Christmas
A new favourite from the Aardman team - The Claus family have handed down the title of Santa throughout their generations - but who will be next? Super-organised Steve, or hapless Arthur, who takes it upon himself to deliver the one gift that got left behind...?

Home Alone
When little Macaulay Culkin is left alone at Christmas in a massive house it's easy pickings for a couple of crooks, right? Think again. Let the games begin!

And I'll leave you with my all-time favourite Christmas film - The Muppets Christmas Carol. After all, there's only one more sleep till Christmas!

I am so late in commenting on this post. I haven't seen Arthur Christmas or Father Christmas but I love the others. My fave is The Snowman, but I can't watch it all the way through, I cry when he melts, every time i watch it, even with the kids in work... :(
