Making an exhaustive list of Christmas films to watch for children (but enjoyable at all ages) is really difficult as there are so many Christmas films. However, we have decided to choose ten truly unmissable titles, which all children love and make a child become even those who no longer wait for Santa's arrival. Here are 10 movies to have fun with at Christmas:

  1. Mum I Lost the Plane (1990) and Mum I Lost the Plane: I Lost in New York (1992)

The adventures of little Kevin McCallister - forgotten at home by his parents during the Christmas holidays in the first film and put on a wrong plane in the sequel, facing thieves Harry and Marv Merchants - are truly unmissable. Laughter is assured for all ages.

  2. Miracle on 34th Street (1994)

    Another Christmas cult that has been handed down from generation to generation is the Miracle on 34th Street, a remake of the famous film The Miracle of 34th Street in 1947.

    Following the success of Mamma I lost the plane, Mamma I took the measles resumes the theme of the child at home alone during the Christmas holidays to fight against delinquents. In this case we have a gang of international criminals hiding a precious microchip with military secrets in a radio-controlled toy car.
