Some families enjoy watching a Christmas movie the night before Christmas and we've put together some of our favourites:

Rise of the Guardians

The Tooth Fairy, Santa Clause, Mr Sandman, The Easter Bunny and Jack Frost join forces to stop Pitch from turning the world into darkness. An epic adventure for every child's imagination. 

Home Alone

A hilarious old school Christmas classic staring Macaulay Culkin as he attempts to defeat a pair of nuisance burglars from breaking into the house. 

The Nightmare Before Christmas 

Tim Burton’s beautiful animation classic isn’t as scary as it sounds, and it's great fun for children aged 7+.


Buddy (Will Ferrel) is transported to the North Pole by mistake and attempts to go to New York to find his real father. 

The Grinch 

The Grinch who stole Christmas is a must-see if you haven't already seen it. In the live animated adaptation of a story by Dr Zues, the story has a heart-warming ending after the Grinch learns some valuable lessons about love and kindness. 

The Polar Express

An exciting adventure about a young boy who takes a train ride to the North Pole. Along the way he learns about the spirit of Christmas through imagination.

A 6 year old girl and a lawyer must find the perfect Santa to pose in a store. When he claims that he's the real Santa the little girl tries to prove that he's the real thing.
