This 1994-film shows the evolving bond between Susan Walker, a Santa sceptic and Kris Kringle, a department-store Santa, who thinks he is the real thing.

The classics: For some, watching the Home Alone series is a family Christmas ritual, and there is no reason to break from convention, since it’s a good one. This year, add Jingle All The Way to the list as well. Arnold Schwarzenegger being intentionally funny is a sight to behold.
