    Probably right, although it wasn't really associated with Christmas in my House

    Can't really think of any others

    i always think of Die Hard and Home Alone as Christmas movies though i think its pretty obvious that the former is less associated with the holiday than the latter.

    Home alone is a family tradition for our christmas, i'm not sure how home alone cant be seen as a christmas movie.

    Don't all of the james bond movies marathon on christmas? Or maybe that's thanksgiving.

    I think because as a kid I was more interested / paying attention to Macaulay Culkin having free range of his house and him messing with the crooks ha ha. Plus, it's a completely different season for Christmas in Australia so I can't relate to the whole "White Christmas" angle
