Let's Organize The Holiday Movie Club for 2018! The Holiday Movie Club is when we watch heartwarming holiday films from, approximately, American Thanksgiving weekend (starting Wednesday, 21 November) to New Years Day. What's a holiday film? A film set during the holidays, or that deals with holiday themes, or that you have a tradition of watching during the holidays. If you have other holiday film traditions, you are welcome to post them too!

The Club Page and all prior posted movies are here. Please pick movies to post and watch, or rewatch, and add them to the event list.

I might have a bit of a bias, but I strongly feel that Blood Freak needs to be a Thanksgiving-weekend event.

Nightmare Before Christmas.

It's a Christmas film and a Halloween film, there I said it.

I have a Thanksgiving tradition of watching Titan A.E. And I see it's yet to make it on to Fanfare.

What's the etiquette for Events? Just pick a day?

For most Hollywood films, Christmas = snowy US, snowy UK, etc. Or maybe sunny California, but still in the winter holidays for that country.

Are there any great movies about Christmas in unsnowy lands like New Zealand or Australia?

Noise is an Australian film about tinnitus set around Christmastime
