Fifteen days till Christmas! What's your favourite Christmas-related film or TV programme? Here's what'll be on in our houses while we stuff ourselves full of chocolate and Christmas cake ...
Christmas with Mr Darcy author Victoria Connelly says "I adore 'It's a Wonderful Life' and the Christmas episode of 'The Good Life"
A Merry Little Christmas author Julia Williams says "Easy peasy. A Wonderful Life. Sentimental I know, but James Stewart is sooooo lovely & it was the inspiration in part for Last Christmas, without which A Merry Little Christmas would never have been written."
Married by Christmas and Santa Maybe author Scarlett Bailay says: The Sound of Music, and it's compulsory viewing for me at Christmas. If I haven’t sung 'Doe a Dear' six hundred times in December, I've failed."
My So-Called Christmas Carol author Tamsyn Murray says "I'm torn by this question. On the one hand, I want to say Love, Actually, because I secretly want to be Martine McCutcheon and snog Hugh Grant. But on the other hand, I want to say Elf, because I'm still twelve years old."
Winter Wonderland author Belinda Jones says "It's A Wonderful Life. I first watched this while sitting in a hot-tub in a converted train caboose in a trailer park town called Nice, about two and half hours drive from San Francisco. My friend Emily and I were so freaked out to discover we were vacationing in the Meth Capital of Northern California we wanted to lose ourselves in a heart-warming family tale and this was one of about 12 DVD options at the B&B. I was surprised how deep the movie is! Makes you think and makes you extremely grateful for what you have, right now!"
Mistletoe in Manhattan author Talli Roland says "I adore Love Actually, and I watch it every Christmas without fail whilst sobbing like a lovesick idiot on the sofa."
Meet Me Under the Mistletoe author Abby Clements says "Anything sparkly you can snuggle up on a sofa and plough through a box of chocolates to! My favourite Christmas films are The Holiday, Love Actually and Elf. Watching the X-Factor final's become something of a Christmastime tradition too."
The Twelve Days to Christmas author Michele Gorman says "How The Grinch Stole Christmas (the original version with Boris Karloff narrating). My sister and I can recite it word-for-word, which everybody else in the room really enjoys year after year :-) For those of you not familiar with the joys of the Grinch (or would rather listen to Thurl Ravenscroft sing it than me), here it is on You Tube. "
