Is there anything better than curling up when it’s cold outside with a blanket, hot chocolate and a good old Christmas film on. Now, I am in no way a movie buff, in fact, I’m regularly teased by friends and family because I haven’t seen some of the biggest films ever to be made. That said, growing up I liked nothing more than to put on a Christmas film and watch it again and again and again. So, this lists is a big mix of my favourite films to pop on. Note, these are mainly for children. Sorry, not sorry.
Mickey’s Twice Upon a Christmas
Now, I know there is another before this and I’m pretty sure I loved that too but this is what I remember having on all the time. We got it when my sister was tiny and I just remember it being on and it’s just nice and chilled as well as being fun.
Miracle on 34th Street
This came out when I was 2 and it’s just a go-to classic with an adorable Mara Wilson. I think this one is just because it’s always been on and around while I was growing up, it has a little girl (who in my mind was always Matilda, sorry!) and Santa. I was in, totally in.
Fun fact, I was slightly scared of the Grinch but couldn’t stop watching it. I wasn’t interested in Cindy-Lou I was fully invested in the Grinch himself and felt so bad for him and also loved him. Shout out to Primark getting on the Grinch train
SANTA OH MY GOD I KNOW HIM.
I don’t understand people who don’t like Elf, genuinely don’t understand them. This is hilarious but also can make me cry and it’s just silly. I just love it so much, the music is also adorable.
This is my favourite film. I don’t think it’s ever failed to cheer me up and I love every single actor in it and it’s just so good. Love Actually gets a lot of stick but I don’t think it’s deserved. All of the stories link and there’s just a warm feeling to it. If not just watch it for Hugh Grants dancing, worth watching just for that.
