At the beginning of each December, when the Christmas boxes come down from the attic, one of the boxes I most look forward to opening is the one that contains the Christmas films and books.
Until Christmas Eve I like to leave them under the Christmas tree, until they are replaced by the presents! The thought of lots of wrapped presents under the tree might just be too tempting so I keep them elsewhere until Christmas Eve.
Some of my favourite movies include
Miracle on 34th Street (both versions)
The Santa Clause (all 3 of them)
It’s A Wonderful Life
The Snowman (Raymond Briggs)
Shrek the Halls
And my favourite Christmas Books
ANY nativity story! – but especially this one, The Story of Christmas – A Nativity Tale for Children, which has photos of the traditional school nativity, tea towels and all!
The Tale of Three Trees
Twas The Night Before Christmas
What about you – which movies and books would you choose or add to the list?
The snow has gone! I am sure it will return, but for now I am NOT missing it at all (sorry to gloat to those who are still snowed in and shovelling their way out)
