Christmas is my favourite holiday of the year. I love everything about it, but I especially love putting up the Christmas tree and keeping those little family traditions going. Another thing I love about this time of year is watching Christmas movies. So I thought I’d share some of my favourite Christmas movies with you.
Home Alone. This is probably a favourite for most people. It’s a classic and one you just can’t go wrong with. I don’t ever really remember watching Home Alone as a child but I definitely appreciate it as an adult.
Home Alone 2: Lost in New York. Another classic. I love this movie even more since I took a trip to New York last year. Seeing the Central Park ice-skating and the Plaza Hotel are just some of things that symbolised Christmas for me.
The Muppets Christmas Carol. It wouldn’t be Christmas without this movie. Me & Adam love it and always sing along to the songs.
How The Grinch Stole Christmas. I love watching this film, singing along with Cindy Lou Who! This movie always makes a bit emosh when watching Bbay Grinch experience heartbreak for the first time. I can totally relate to The Grinch throughout the year so it’s a nice reminder of what Christmas is really about.
The Holiday. Another movie I always love to watch during the festive season. I am a sucker for these sorts of winter-y romantics. And do people actually do these impromptu house swaps? I am intrigued.
Love Actually. Of course Love Actually is in my Christmas movie faves! Who doesn’t want to follow a bunch of people falling in and out of love on Christmas?
Frozen. Yes I am 27 and I love Disney – SO WHAT!? Frozen is just a fun, guilty pleasure that you can sing a long with and get really into – guilt-free!
The Nightmare Before Christmas. This is an odd one because I never know if it comes under a Halloween film or a Chirstmas film? But I love singing along to all the songs never the less!
Miracle on 34th Street. Such a sweet story about believing in Christmas. Richard Attenborough is AMAZING and I am pretty sure he might actually be the real Santa…
Fred Claus. This is mine and Adams favourite film to watch on Christmas eve, it has kind of become our tradition. I like the fact that although it is a Christmas story, it is actually about Santa’ brother Fred and gives you an input on his life and all the issues he had growing up with a worldwide famous brother.
What are your favourite Christmas movies?
Thanks for reading.
