Quiz: How well do you remember these Christmas movies from the 90s?

IT’S THAT TIME of year when our TV schedules are full of the old Christmas classics. 

As we get ready to enter a new decade, we’ve decided to take a look back at some oldies from the 1990s (and before you take to the comments, 1990 was almost 30 years ago so yes, they count as oldies. Sorry).
