When I was a child, I wasn't really into the Christmas films or specials. I enjoyed the Rudolph and Frosty specials, as well as Home Alone, but I never really got excited for them. The most excitement that went on was for The Nutcracker airing and I usually ended up falling asleep right in the middle of it. It wasn't until after my father died that they really started to appeal to me.
Last year, I watched the original version of Miracle on 34th Street, with Natalie Wood in, and it has since become one of my favourite Christmas films of all time.
