This one was part of Christmas Day ritual every year at my in-laws and best watched with drink onboard. :mrgreen:

No Christmas would be complete without Raymond Briggs' "The Snowman". Despite it being released as recently as 1982, it feels like it has been around forever. Another pulse checker - i.e. if it doesn't make feel emotional check to see if you have one. :mrgreen:

Top Of The Pops on Christmas Day was always looked forward to.

Was always happy to receive music for Christmas - from 1982 onwards, always got a couple of LPs and money / gift tokens to buy more in the post-festive sales. Raiders Of The Pop Charts purchased at the end of December 1982 was a favourite - https://apopfansdream.wordpress.com/201 ... onco-1982/

I think I've seen Kelly's Heroes about 20 times now but will watch it again if its on over the Christmas. I love the soundtrack music.

I'm not a big fan of Christmas, the commercialism and false bonhomie piss me off big time but the "must watch" film in our house has for years, been "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers". Not a dead body, arse, tit or any other item of naked anatomy in sight, just an old fashioned, rollicking, if not exactly PC, musical. Good fun from start to finish with a top cast, for the time, and a great score.
It gets trotted out every year, even now with the youngest in their mid thirties. The grandkids lap it up too.
