Ooh difficult… It’s going to have to be National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
Emily Phillips, author of Trying
I adore Home Alone 2 for a festive reminder of how much I love New York when the decorations are up (and how gothically spooky Central Park can be). But in terms of sheer sing-along joy, it would have to be A Muppet Christmas Carol. I do all my harried Christmas eve wrapping to it every year. The bunny gets me every time
Stef Penney, author of Under a Pole Star
Actually a New Year’s movie – The Apartment. Does that count?
Laurie Graham, author of The Early Birds
White Christmas. But this year I’m hoping Captain Underpants will be out on DVD.
Fiona Mitchell, author of The Maid’s Room
I adore Kind Hearts and Coronets. For me, Christmas should involve a black and white film in some shape or form, and this one is my favourite. For family viewing? You can’t beat a bit of Home Alone.
