It's a Wonderful Life. Makes me cry every time.

Joyeux Noel. Set in WW1.

And at the other end of the spectrum, a movie that won't be everyone's taste but is on my 'to watch' list is a (2010) Finnish movie called Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale. You can find the trailer on youtube.

I'm a bit surprised that "A Christmas Story" was only mentioned once. Maybe this is a cultural divide thing? Here in the states, it's probably in the top five of everyone's Xmas movie list (and is shown incessantly on cable year after year after year after year).
