A is for Alastair Sim. His performance in the 1951 version of A Christmas Carol still remains the definitive portrayal of Ebenezer Scrooge.
B is for Bruce Willis. You can even get Die Hard festive jumpers now – ho-ho-ho.
C is for Channel 5. This lot love to start early with the Yuletide flicks; in fact I’m sure I saw one during August Bank Holiday.
D is for Disney. From Snow White to Frozen, they’ve made family entertainment into an art form, especially at this time of year..
E is for elves. Played by Dudley Moore and Will Ferrell amongst others, they’ve served Santa well over the years.
