Not Christmas themed films like A Wonderful Life, Miracle on 42th Street or A Christmas Carol, but films that remind you of childhood Christmas.

For me there are three films:
One of our dinasours is missing
Flash Gordon
Escape to Victory

Doesn't remind me of childhood, but I do associate it with Christmas.

Obviously my OP should read 42nd Street, not 42th Street.

The Great Escape

Its a Wonderful Life isn't really a Christmas themed film

In reply to The New NickB: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is a standard 'school Christmas holiday scheduling' favourite.

Also family films like Star Wars and Indiana Jones remind me of the chrimbo period without being festive. And a +1 for Flash Gordon!

For me it has to be Trading Places but that is sort of Christmas themed.

I know, I will put that down to the iPhone.

'Your' was spelt correctly, just wasn't the correct word.

Really just one for me: Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (the 1971 version)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Willy_Wonka_%26_the_Chocolate_Factory

Seemed to be on every Christmas at some stage in the afternoon. I used to complain that it was awful and a terrible waste of airtime until one Chirstmas I actually WATCHED it fully and decided it was actually rather good.

Still quite like it, and think the new one's bad and unnecessary. I'll probably change my mind on that one too when I get down to watching it :-)

Not a Christmas film but has the same content of violence as the Xmas day family meal.
