Christmas Movies Advent Calendar Selection

In order to usher in the festive spirit I intend to list a few select choices of Christmas related movies and select TV specials. I’ll keep this list casual and ongoing in order to slowly build-up a list of perennial faves to draw upon each December.

Note: The films and TV specials are listed alphabetically rather than by preference. Also I make no claims to the 'importance' or 'quality' of these titles. Few are genuinely great movies but there is entertainment to be found within them. Feel free to make suggestions of you own as I slowly refine this list to 25-31 key Xmas set films.
