It's almost that time of year once again, when store assistants the world over contemplate ripping out their own eardrums rather than face another run of heinous Christmas jingles. Those poor, tortured saps… Their suffering notwithstanding, the run up to Xmas represents a truly magical time of year, bursting with glee, good will and some truly memorable tussles in the toy isle. "No Betty, gouge the eye, gouge the eye!".
There really is a little something for everyone at Xmas, be it live-in trees for you nature lovers, door-to-door carollers embarrassing the life out of home owners or the ever present suite of de-Scrooging movies available at the click of a button. This list celebrates the very best of these films, from the whimsical and heartfelt, to the sad and strangely disturbing. Enjoy.
