I haven’t managed to watch any Christmas Movies yet really other than the end of Elf a few weeks ago, which is very unlike me. Normally I watch the first one around my birthday but that was weeks ago now!
I love watching and going to the movies anyway so always enjoy a festive film. Last Christmas one of my priorities was to go out and buy all of my favourite Christmas movies so I could watch them and feel festive.
My absolute favourite movie to watch is the re-make of Miracle on 34th Street. The story is so sweet and I just love the outcome too. I also love that it shows off New York at Christmas and one day I will visit New York around this time of year so I can see it for real.
I also love to watch Love Actually. It has a fantastic cast and there are lots of funny moments where you can’t help but laugh out loud but also a few sad moments which really tug at the heart. You really root for the characters to get their happy ending as well because they are likeable.
Now if you want a good laugh at Christmas then I think Elf has to be the go to movie for me. I saw this for my birthday many years ago when it was released and I still watch it every Christmas. It was on TV recently and I switched over at the end and was singing along with the cast. I’m not sure the Aussie quite appreciated how great it is!
No Christmas (or any other time of the year come to think of it as its shown all year round) would be complete without watching The Holiday. The premise of two random strangers swapping homes for Christmas is pretty great and the characters are all quite likeable. It’s another film where you want everyone to be happy.
Last but by no means least I have to mention Santa Clause the Movie. I can remember watching this film from when I was really little and I just loved it. Even though its almost 30 years old having been made in 1985 even now it’s still great and I will watch it if it’s on TV. You know that the Christmas TV line up is great if this movie is on!
So these are just a small selection of the films that I will be watching this festive season. Which films do you like to watch during the Christmas holidays?
