    Default Favourite Christmas book and DVD?

    I'm in search of a lovely Christmas story to read with the kids on Christmas Eve and some family DVDs to watch on the lead up.

    Thanks 😊

    Polar express is a good one, also Santa clause, my favourite is Miracle on 34th street but I don't think DS1 (4) really appreciates it yet. He likes Mickey's once upon a Christmas.

    As for books, the 12 days of Christmas, twas the night before Christmas, Aussie Jingle Bells by Colin Buchanan

    I used to watch these every year as a kid.

    I also quite liked the Muppet's Christmas Carol.

    I was never fond of It's a Wonderful Life, Miracle on *whatever number it is* Street, etc etc. It hasn't really changed with adulthood either if I'm honest.

    Book: How the grinch stole Christmas.

    Movie: A Christmas Story (an American Classic that pretty much every American is in love with--it airs in marathons come Thanksgiving) friggin' hilarious but may just be an American thing, DH doesn't think it's that great. I found it on DVD so I can have an evening where I can sit down and feel like I'm home. Tradition is to pass out on sofa after your big Christmas meal with the movie in the background. Memories.

    My favourite Christmas movies are Elf, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation and The Santa Clause.

    Some of my children's favourite Christmas books are The Night Before Christmas pop up book (I've had it since I was a kid!), Christmas Mouse, The Little Christmas Elf (Golden Book) and My Special Christmas Adventure (personalised name book). But I have to say that they have heaps of Christmas books, many of which I had when I was kid because I have always loved Christmas!
