Now who doesn’t love a good christmas film? Especially on a cold winter’s night in December, I usually grab some treats and a hot chocolate with a soft throw over me on the sofa and get cosy to put a film on. I do like traditional christmas films but I also like some others as well, comedy ones are brilliant too things like Bad Santa! Haha.
I’ve put together a few of my all times faves which I will always watch over the festive period to make me feel more cheerful and into the christmas spirit.
“Hi, buddy the elf, what’s your favourite colour?” Let’s start of with the funniest film that I just loooovveee, ELF! Will Ferrell, who plays the main character, never fails to make me laugh my head off, he is one of my all time favourite actors. The story follows Buddy the elf, who in fact isn’t actually an elf but whom was raised by elves, is on the search to New York city from the North Pole, to find his real father. If you have never watched this film i highly recommend it if you want a giggle and also it warms your heart and shows how family is important especially near christmas time.
Home Alone is a childhood favourite of mine and all my siblings, we would stick the video tape into the player and all sit around the television eating out of the Quality street and Roses tins! The strawberry and orange cremes are my fave YUM. 8 year old Kevin McCallister is accidentally left home alone whilst his huge crazy family jet off to Paris for the holidays. He comes across burglars who have their eye on his family home but Kevin is clever and has lots of booby traps in mind to stop them! It’s fun and funny and an all rounder with the family.
Going back to the 90s again with another classic Jingle All The Way starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. This is about him being a father and wanted to get the new Turbo Man toy for his son Jamie for christmas but as always he has left it to last minute and is racing against time and another father to grab a turbo man! This will have you laughing too and it excites you as you don’t know what he’s going to come across next. This is a fab film for all the family.
The Holiday is a real romance film that is set around Christmas time and really warms your heart. It shows the story of 2 women who are sick of the men in their life so decide to swap homes for the Christmas holidays! It is a real lovey film but has so much joy and some giggles along the way too. It’s got some fantastic actors in including the 4 main parts played by Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet, Jack Black and Jude Law.
I always get so excited when I’m going to watch Love Actually! It is simply one of the best Christmassy films out there, full of all different kinds of love stories that really do melt your heart, the little boy is my fave, so cute! It also has a huge amazing line up of actors, including Liam Neeson, Hugh Grant, Alan Rickman (rest in peace:() and Kiera Knightly. And if anyone is a Walking Dead fan then you’ll be glad to know that Andrew Lincoln who plays Rick Grimes is in this movie with his normal British accent haha!
