One of my favourite memories of Christmas time as a child was looking at the TV schedule to see what movies were going to be on and planning what TV time I’d have – there was no screen time limit at Christmas time (never mind the fact that it was the 70s & 80s!).

So if you like watching a good Christmas movie on TV with your child, here’s a big roundup of what’s on this Christmas 2019.
