White Christmas.
Ready for Tears? Christmas was my mom's favorite time of year, she always went overboard decorating and baking, and White Christmas was her favorite movie. She passed away when I was 16. I tried the first year to make up for her, but It didn't work, SO my dad and I kind of stopped celebrating Christmas. Skip 15 years later, and my first kid is born on December 20th. My dad comes to see us in the hospital and he brought a copy of White Christmas, so "Grandma can be there too." Now it's a tradition, My dad comes over every year and we watch it as a family.

The movies you named are all movies I love for Christmas and watch every holiday season! Like Die Hard, The Greemlins, and all of this classics! ("

I also have films for you, not necessarily with Christmas, but which we listen to during the Holiday season (there are films other than English, but they are fun!)

- Amélie / Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain : it's the right movie to encourage you to be kind to your neighbour, even if you're very really really shy
- Seducing Dr Lewis / La Grande Séduction (do no watch the USA version, it's sad, take the one with the great actor, Raymond Bouchard)
- Les douze travaux d'Astérix / The Twelve Tasks of Asterix : Asterix was, according to Hergé, Tintin's worst adversary. Very funny and still topical, with "The house that makes you crazy" (la maison qui rend fou)
- La guerre des Tuques, lit. "The Tuque War" : Must watch the movie. It is very funny! Then... we talk about it later.

I tend to buck the trend, and not really watch any Christmas movies around the holidays. Though if I do, it's usually holiday themed horror movies.

However, I just recently got a short series called Mobile Suit Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket, which is set during the holiday season. Been told it's one of the best spin offs of the original Gundam series.

Okay... you have to see this movie. But I prefer to warn you: it's a sad story. And a true story. This film is called "Joyeux Noël" ("Merry Christmas") and takes place during the First World War, on Christmas Eve.

In the trenches, French, British and Germans no longer shoot at each other "because it's Christmas". And there the Germans begin to put Christmas trees on the edges of their trenches and sing Christmas carols. The French and the British are beginning to feel far from their loved ones this holiday season. So the soldiers decide to make peace on Christmas Day, on NoMan's Land.

All the soldiers shake hands, show photos of their family or their fiancée, offer each other chocolates and cigarettes. And play football!

But now, on December 26, when it was time to start the "real war" again, the soldiers in those same trenches could no longer shoot at each other. The soldiers of the three countries were shot. Because it was "an act of treason to sympathize with the enemy in this way".

This film represents for me the true spirit of Christmas and of what we must do every day: to know each other. I cried when I saw this movie and I keep seeing pictures of these soldiers on the Internet. I'll never see that movie again, but I'll never forget those soldiers.
