There are so many wonderful classic films that have become part of our holiday traditions that it just doesn’t seem like December until we’ve heard Bing Crosby sing White Christmas (1954) or watched Jimmy Stewart run down Main Street past the Bijou Theater in It’s a Wonderful Life (1946). But there are other films—films not specifically about Christmas, but set around this time of year—that are equally charming and give us the added fun of sneaking a peek at Christmas traditions of the past as preserved on film.

Christmas In The Movies
This time of year brings out the usual standard fare of classic holiday movies. Matinee At The Bijou posted an article about a number of excellent films that, although not as associated with Christmas as other movies, nevertheless have a healthy dose of Yuletide spirit, such as Remember The Night (1940) with Barbara Stanwyck and Fred MacMurray.
