His Birthday in the book and original film (Called Willy Wonka and the Chocalate Factory(Gene Wilder is amazing))anyway .
Not sure about the awful remake Johnny Depp is actually bad in it.
But surely even a one off plot device refering too christams is a lot less than an entire film set at christmas

Well, yeah, but.....close enough :P
I didn't think it was that well known because I rarely hear anyone mention it.

I've watched them every Christmas since 2001, Fellowship came out this very week 10 years ago, so they are Christmas traditions to me, if not Christmas films... :D

Just watching Gremlins a great Chritmas film, I love the bit where they're singing the carols in front of the big mansion and in the cinema watching Snow White. :lol:

Gremlins of course.

I'd go with Lord of teh Rings for Christmas too.

Watched Elf last week, that and Anchorman are the only Farrell films I like.
