CHRISTMAS "FAMILY" MOVIES ON DVD

A Listmania! list by Steven H Propp (Sacramento, CA USA)
(TOP 100 REVIEWER)   
The list author says: "Christmas is a wonderful time for getting together with families; and watching movies that everyone (including the children/grandchildren) can enjoy is a favorite activity.

One caution: Check the detailed reviews, to see if VERY young children should not view a particular film (because of language, etc.).

(For more suggestions about movies, see my lists, "Sentimental Christmas Movies," “Christmas ‘Drama’ Movies,” "Christmas 'Romance' Movies," "Christmas Comedy Movies," "Classic Christmas Movies," "Black (African-American) Christmas Movies," and my five lists of "Christmas Programs for Children.")"
