    For me Home Alone and Home Alone 2 but, for sure the first one is my favorite.

    Looking at it another way I remember anticipating getting both the Radio and TV Times, a precursor as far as festive viewing was concerned.
    At risk of going off topic I have fond memories of Ghost Stories for Christmas... Lost Hearts was a gem, still sends shivers down my spine to this day.

    I recall in the 70s every Christmas there would be Marx Brothers films aired.

The Please Sir! film was first shown, post Queen in 1976 as well.

    Instead of a stack of DVDs I often rely on it to see what the broadcasters have in store for us. TV Licence members - I have access to Sky Movies but it is annoying to have to put the four digit code to watch a 15 certificate film during the day.
    I hate when movies are interrupted to show ads. Once I got Premium on youtube and I must say that this platform now seems quite different after I got rid of the ads in the clips.

    It is hard to pick top 10 because every new film which I watch can push the 10th film out of the list of the best movies ever The other day I saw The Phone Booth. An old film with Colin Farrell but it is still worth watching. Highly recommend!

    Mind you, I lost my mother close to Christmas, but you can't let that get the better of you at that time of year.
