I’ve seen many people write about their favourite Christmas movies on their blogs, this blogmas and I have thoroughly enjoyed reading each and every one of them. As a person who loves to get cosy and binge watch movies, I thought I’d share my top 5 favourite Christmas movies with you all. The movies I have chosen are very popular and I imagine many of you have already seen them but if you haven’t, I highly recommend you giving them a go. Whether you are into comedies, romance or cartoons, there is something here for everyone. I hope you enjoy this sweet and simple post and carry on feeling festive this December.
1) The Grinch
The Grinch is by far one of my favourite films of all time. Not only is it the best Christmas film to exist but I also can watch this film all year round. I am huge Dr. Seuss fan so there’s no surprise that The Grinch is on the top, reaching the number 1 place on my list. Not only is this film funny but is also so relatable, I relate to the Grinch on such a spiritual level.
2) The Polar Express
The Polar Express has been a favourite of mine since I was a little girl. It’s a magical film that I recommend everyone watching at least once, especially if you have little ones that still believe in the magic of Christmas and Santa himself. I won’t spoil too much of the film for you but it’s about a little boy who no longer believes that Father Christmas is real and he goes on an adventure and regrets his thoughts. It really is a sweet story of a little boy on Christmas.
Elf is an absolute classic Christmas film. It hasn’t quite got the place of my favourite film, however, it’s definitely up there at the top. Buddy the Elf (who is played by the hilarious Will Ferrell) is a hyperactive, happy go lucky elf that realises he was put up for adoption at birth. In order to find his real parents, he takes a trip to the big apple! It’s a really fantastic and funny film so if you are up for a laugh, this is the one for you.
The film Nativity is a relatively new Christmas film that I had the pleasure of recently discovering. This film was first released in 2009 and since then have produced a second and a third film. I haven’t actually watched the next two as of yet but that is my plan for this year. The first film is about a teacher who is super duper cute (played by Martin Freeman). He must find a way to bring his former lover, a Hollywood producer, back to London to film his class’s Nativity play. It’s such a fun and loving story so would recommend giving this one a watch.
