The Best Christmas Movies!
Excited for Christmas Day tomorrow? So are we! We can’t wait to sip on buck’s fizz, stuff our faces with Christmas dinner and give and receive all those thoughtful gifts. But after all the feasting, when the excitement of unwrapping presents has died down, sometimes all you want to do is lie down and embrace your turkey coma. And what better way to relax on Christmas Day than sticking on your fave festive film? Here are the Christmas movies we love the most which are sure to give you some inspiration!
My favourite festive film absolutely has to be Love Actually. It’s whimsy, bittersweet and gives you all the feels – just like real love (heh). I’m just a sucker for those perfectly intertwined stories with (mostly) happy endings!
Easy – It’s a Wonderful life! This movie is such a classic and I just love black and white films. It’s one of those movies I can watch over and over again and it gets me every time!
Hands Down, Miracle on 34th Street. It’s the underdog of Christmas movies in my opinion, and the magic of Christmas Eve is portrayed so beautifully in it. No matter your age, at the end of the day, we all like to believe that Santa will save the day.
Ooh, this is a tough one. I’ve never been a fan of the whole “Saving Christmas” premise that ties most Christmas movies together, which is probably why I’m tied between The Snowman, which is beautiful, haunting, and also a story of mortality, and The Nightmare Before Christmas, because let’s face it – an anti-hero with a mid-unlife crisis? Yes please.
Dr Seuss’ The Grinch Who Stole Christmas is a childhood favourite which never fails to have me in stitches. No matter the time of year, this one gets popped on throughout – I’ll be watching this in July #sorrynotsorry.
How has no one mentioned Home Alone?! The young and mischievous Macaulay Culkin wreaking havoc on two clumsy thieves is a 90s classic that’s always fun to watch. This cheeky Christmas comedy is sure to bring a smile to your face (especially after a couple of glasses of mulled wine…). Merry Christmas, ya filthy animal!
