ALTERNATIVE CHRISTMAS

ALTERNATIVE CHRISTMAS

A selection of films that feature one or more scenes set at Christmas ... failing that, they simply feature a tree somewhere in the background.  Or someone pops on a Santa hat.  

No this season doesn't include DIE HARD, as that is a proper Chritsmas film.
