A new survey has found that Home Alone is the nation's favourite Christmas film.

Video-on-demand service blinkbox's survey of 2,000 adults revealed that Christmas is the time we watch the most television, with the average adult spending five and a half hours a day in front of the TV over the festive period.

The poll also asked participants about their viewing habits over the Yuletide period, and discovered that 78% of people like to watch the same movie every Christmas.

Home Alone emerged as the favourite movie for families to watch over Christmas, winning 28% of the total vote. Close behind was the classic Raymond Briggs animation The Snowman, with 27% of the vote.

Rounding out the top five were Miracle on 34th Street (26%), Elf (20%), and Love Actually (18%). Star Keira Knightley recently revealed her delight at the romcom becoming an established holiday classic.

The findings also revealed that the majority of British adults (53%) admit they have seen some movies and TV shows so many times that they can recite the actors' lines verbatim.

Additionally, it was discovered that nearly half of us (49%) will watch 25 hours of repeats over a 10-day period.

Home Alone came second to The Muppet Christmas Carol in Digital Spy's run-down of readers' top Christmas films last year.

While i do like Home Alone and Home Alone 2.

It isn't the greatest. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, for me.

Every year i moan it is on but i still watch it and laugh. Another film i watch also is Batteries Not Included. That is usually on around christmas time too.

There's only one true Christmas film: Monty Python's Life of Brian.

Seriously? I thought they'd pick something like Scrooge (1951), which is one of the best, if not the best adaptations of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol!

I forgot to say...

But I still like getting presents.

I think we should change it's name to Consumermas.

And everyone knows the best Christmas movie is The Muppet Christmas Carol.

Along with "A Muppet Christmas: Letters to Santa" & "It's A Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie" & " A Muppet Family Christmas"

Not forgetting Bad Santa, Fred Claus & Scrooged.

I'd go with Christmas Vacation, Scrooged, Lethal Weapon (which is a Christmas movie as far as I'm concerned) and Bad Santa over Home Alone.

But I still like Home Alone.

I didn't like that as much I wanted to plus it reminds me of bad times (received the call my dad had died during that movie :( )

My favourite Christmas film is of course Jackie Brown. It's a classic!

Home Alone is alright but it's not my favorite. My fav is Jim Carrey's The Grinch. That is a masterpiece.
