Popular Christmas melodies delight us both in our festively decorated homes and also on the silver screen. Christmas-themed movies often strike a sure and deep chord and can then become a “classic” film. For example, the romantic comedy Bridget Jones’s Diary and Ben Hur cast their spell on each new generation. Or the film score accompanying the magical events between platform nine and three quarters and Hogwarts … What must never be left out is: Irving Berlin’s White Christmas!
