The ULTIMATE Christmas Non-Chrismas Movie List!

Current Theme Song (aka what's playing on my ipod right now): Every Teardrop is a Waterfall by Coldplay.

I have this fun but rather random goal. For Christmas this year, I want to watch as many holiday movies as I can, but not the usual Miracle on 34th Street/Rudolph fare. I want to come up with a list of movies that are not Christmas movies but have a Christmas scene in them. They're like secret Christmas movies. ^_^ And I need your help because I've wracked my brain and I want this to be the most complete list possible. For posterity. There were tons of these I was shocked to realize had a Christmas scene in them. Wanna test your hand, help a girl out? :) I'll add them all to the list! And then we can rock it out like it was 1999.

Harry Potter films (all eight, I think)
Die Hard
Little Women
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
Miss Potter
Edward Scissorhands
Ghostbusters 2

The Big Year
While You Were Sleeping
Batman Returns
The Blind Side
Lady and the Tramp

Possibles I'm not sure of:
Iron Will (I may be just thinking of these becuase they have way too much snow).

Doctor Who Christmas specials usually have a Christmas setting. Last year's was Lion, Witch, Wardrobe theme. This year will be Dickensian evil snowmen.

I'd have to think awhile to come up with others.

Fun list.

My brother thinks that Die Hard is the best Christmas movie out there :p

The only one that I could think of right now is Lion, Witch, and the Wardrobe. They talk about Christmas a lot but it's not the main theme of the movie.
If I think of anymore I'll be sure to let you know.
And I'll have to keep checking on your updated list cause this is a great idea!
