Christmas 2017: Films to watch this festive season.

It's that time of the year again when children are excited to get gifts and adults are busy decorating homes for the big celebration. The entire world is in festive spirit and there are mirth and merriment in the atmosphere.

Christmas is celebrated around the world on December 25.

In such a positively charged up atmosphere, here are a few films that you can watch with your family this Christmas:

1. One Magic Christmas (1985)

The movie is directed by Phillip Borsos and was released by Walt Disney Pictures. It stars Mary Steenburgen and Harry Dean Stanton in pivotal roles and makes for the perfect Christmas watch.

2. It's A Wonderful Life (1964)

Watching this movie has almost become a tradition in some parts of the world. The movie is produced and directed by Frank Capra and is based on the short story The Greatest Gift, written by Philip Van Doren Stern in 1939.

3. A Christmas Story (1983)

This American Christmas comedy film is directed by Bob Clark, and based on the semi-fictional anecdotes of Jean Shepherd in his 1966 book 'In God We Trust: All Others Pay Cash'. Some elements of the films are also from his 1971 book 'Wanda Hickey's Night of Golden Memories'.

4. Home Alone

When it comes to Christmas, how can one leave out the Home Alone franchise! The first part released in the year 1990 narrates the story of a boy who is accidentally left behind at home as his family leaves for their Christmas vacation.

The film stars Macaulay Culkin as Kevin McCallister, the central character of the film.
