Inspired by "Die Hard" is not a Christmas Movie, and these are not Christmas Songs!, I am taking the contrary view.

This is a list of "Christmas movies" that are not ABOUT Christmas, but Christmas plays a part, preferably important. Any movie that contains a real Santa Claus is ineligible. Any movie ABOUT a Santa Claus, real or not, is ineligible.

Add your own.

Die Hard and Die Hard 2 are both set at Christmas and Christmas plays at least some part in the movie.

Love Actually?

The only potential disqualifier that i can think of would be the video of Bill Nighy singing along with his 'helpers'......he's not quite a real Santa and neither are any of his helpers whistle

I was going to post Trading Places (one of my all time top ten films) but the obvious disqualifier would be Dan Ackroyd, who dresses up as Santa and then tries to eat a salmon through his beard.

City of Lost Children is the twisted pick I always use to share my holiday spirit. One look at this opening scene should tell you everything you need to know.

If you haven't seen and aren't convinced, check out this wonderful trailer done right that says everything and nothing.

It's a few years since I've seen it but Silent Partner was definitely set in and around the build up to Christmas - Christopher Plummer as a very nasty bank robber dresses up as Santa Claus to rob a bank but is outwitted by Elliot Gould. Not a bad movie if I remember correctly.

The Terry Gilliam film is set at Christmas (in a dystopia future).

Presents are exchanged, at least one carol sung.

IIRC, all (or at least most) of the Harry Potter movies have a Christmas segment in them. By the standard of this list, that makes them all Christmas movies.

The source of the song "We Need a Little Christmas".

Even though it's not Christmas, everyone is so depressed, they pretend it is to cheer themselves up.

Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence. Well just by the name alone, but it does have a scene set at Christmas in the Prisoner of war camp and it's the very last line of the film.

Lethal Weapon is a Christmas movie in the same way as Die Hard. We are first introduced to Riggs undercover at a Christmas Tree lot and there are a number of references to the time of year through out the film.
