Blogmas | Christmas Movies

I always feel that Christmas movies are such an essential to watch over the festive period, but there are so many incredible ones out there. I don't think I could really pick a favourite, so here are my top five, with a little bit about why I love them. 

The Holiday

Although I can't pick a favourite, The Holiday is definitely the Christmas film I'd pick if I could only watch one. I have actually watched this film in months other than December, and I'm not ashamed to say that! I love a good chick flick, and for a Christmas movie this one is just perfect. It's an adorable storyline, I love the characters and I just don't think I could ever get bored of it. Oh and Jude Law is nice to look at too... 

Miracle on 34th Street

I haven't seen the 1947 version, but the 1994 version of this film is just brilliant. I hadn't actually seen this film 'til three or so years ago and I was so surprised that I had gone so long without watching it. It's such a lovely Christmas film, and Mara Wilson is just fantastic in it (as she was in every film she did!) I really must watch the original this year, but I'm not sure whether I'll love it more than the remake, because it is so perfect. 

Elf

Okay so this one definitely needs a mention. Elf is an essential to watch every year, because it is just so brilliant! I absolutely love the storyline, and Zooey Deschanel is one of my favourite actresses so that's an added bonus. It's just such a feel-good movie, and I'd watch it all year round if I could!

The Santa Clause

This is just another real classic. There are so many Santa related films out there, but this one has such a great twist. I love the story behind the main story - the growth of relationship between him and his son. If you haven't seen it, it's definitely worth watching!

Love Actually

Being British, I feel that this one definitely needed a mention. Love Actually is just such a perfect Christmas film in every way. The story lines have love, heartbreak and lots of humour. It's just full of everything a Christmas film should have, and I absolutely love it.
