Top 10 Christmas Films To Watch | LIFESTYLE

Christmas is my favourite time of year and I LOVE to snuggle up on a winter evening with a few Christmas films and a Baileys hot chocolate beside the fire. 

It was actually quite tricky to whittle this list down to just ten as there are so many favourites that didn’t make the cut, like The Nightmare before Christmas (1993), The Snowman (1982) and A Christmas Carol (1951) but these are my favourites that I’ll watch every year without fail!

My Top 10 Christmas Films:

10. Christmas with the Kranks (2004) – when a couple’s daughter isn’t coming home for Christmas they decide to book an exotic cruise instead and become unpopular with the neighbours for not getting in the festive spirit.

9. The Holiday (2006) – this isn’t strictly a “Christmas” film so it’s quite acceptable to watch it all year round (yay) but I love the feel good nature of this film where two ladies swap homes for two weeks find love over the festive period.

8. A Christmas Prince (2017) – this is a new one that came out last year on Netflix and it follows an American journalist on an assignment to cover the story of a Christmas prince (the clue’s in the title!) It’s a simple storyline which is easy to watch.

7. Home Alone (1990) – again, the clue’s in the title with this one where a young boy is left home alone over the Christmas period and has to protect the house against to con men robbers. A fun watch. 

6. The Polar Express (2004) – an animated film voiced entirely by Tom Hanks. This is a lovely festive adventure to the North Pole, perfect for the whole family.

5. Elf (2003) – an elf finds himself in New York City at Christmas. A brilliantly funny comedy for the family.

4. How The Grinch Stole Christmas (2000) – Jim Carey as the Grinch is just fantastic! I know that this year there is a remake but I’m sure it won’t be as good as the 2000 version.

3. Miracle on 34th Street (1994) – the 1994 remake of the original is my favourite starring the late Richard Attenborough. This one is perfect for early December as the film begins on thanksgiving in New York.

2. Love Actually (2003) – such a brilliant film with so many storylines interlinked. This film is so quotable it’s become a Christmas classic.

And the top spot goes to …

White Christmas (1954) – loosely based on the film Holiday Inn, this is a Christmas classic that I watch with my mum every year. It’s full of singing, dancing and Bing Crosby’s “White Christmas”. What’s not to love?! Originally filmed in black and white, the recoloured version is brilliant, just don’t mind the odd bit of blue hair now and again!
