One of the best parts about Christmas has got to be the movies right?! Being able to snuggle up on the sofa with a good cuppa and a freaking awesome Christmas film with the family on a cold December day.
I’ve gathered my top favourite Christmas movies together for you in hopes you’ll take my word for them being just the absolute best! And let’s face it, aren’t we all a sucker for Christmas movies?
1. Muppet’s Christmas Carol
From day one this has been at the top of my favourite Christmas movies list. It just brings so much happiness and a mix of Michael Cain and The Muppets its such a wonderful combo. The soundtrack is so much fun to sing along to, and its easily a movie I’m able to watch with all the family without being told I’m too old for The Muppets. 😉 I’ve loved it that much and for so many years that by November 1st I’m itching to put it on. Yes, November 1st.
2. The Santa Clause
THIS FREAKING FILM. I remember the first time I saw this film and just being blown away by how magical it is. Not only that but the idea that a man could go from a normal fella to being Santa Clause overnight. Again it’s another film you can sit and watch with all the family and have a good laugh watching. (the sequels are brilliant too!).
3. Home Alone
Please don’t hate me for not putting this at the top of my list, I’m very sorry. Home Alone, of course, is just an all-time classic for us all right? Admittedly, I was actually a little freaked out every now and then whenever I watched it because heck – being home alone at 8 years old and then have Marv & Harry come and try and kidnap you? Nope, wasn’t for me. Whenever I watch now I can’t help but love the cleverness of Kevin every single time he sets up a booby trap. Actual genius, and a very bad influence!
Ahhhh another classic! I’ve started to realise by this point that actually none of these movies can be in order because I love them all just as much as each other. Elf is one of those films where its a feel good and happy film, and Will Ferrell and Zooey Deschanel are both wonderful actors and make the film exactly what it is. (I’ll admit I was always tempted to try the big spaghetti he made!)
5. Miracle on 34th Street
This movie will forever blow me away with how magical it makes me feel. This is absolutely one of the films I’ll be watching continually this month. I purely used to watch this movie to admire Mara Wilson and wait for her to use her magical powers, which of course to my huge disappointment she never did. I absolutely admire Richard Attenborough in this film and will continue to watch it for years to remember him.
6. The Princess Switch
A Netflix original with one of my favourite actresses as a child Vanessa Hudgens! Oh my goodness me, I ended up really liking and warming to this movie! When I was younger I was obsessed with The Princess Diaries, and this movie gave me the exact same sort of vibe and the two are very much alike. Watching Vanessa Hudgens do an English accent was a little painful if I’m completely honest, but it was tolerable! Definitely give this watch if you have younger siblings who love princess films like me! (guilty pleasure?)
Those are all the Christmas Movies I have to recommend to you this year! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. They’re all brilliant movies to sit and watch with your family or even your friends on a cosy evening.
