Come the long, cold, Winter nights we find ourselves more inclined to curl up in front of the fire and stick on a film. In between the endless Christmas parties and last-minute shopping rush before the big day, there’s nothing we enjoy more than sitting down to watch our favourite Christmas films. This being said, we have listed our top 10 just for you.
Home Alone (1990)
A Christmas classic – and one you could probably watch all year round – that sees young Kevin McAllister arm himself with snacks and bravery to protect his home from the neighbourhood crooks.
Possibly one of the most-watched Christmas films of all-time after Home Alone, Elf is a feel-good movie that you can’t help but love.
How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000)
Whether it’s the animation or the Jim Carrey version, this film is funny, witty and shows the different side to Christmas that sometimes we all forget about. But if we were to pick one, we would probably pick the live-action version.
Miracle on 34th Street (1994)
We are probably just a little bit biased when it comes to which version of this film we suggest you watch, but really you can’t go wrong with any of the films as they each tell the same adorable tale.
The Santa Clause (1994)
I’m sure most of us will remember watching Tim Allen on Home Improvement (come on, we had cable!), but we just love him even more in The Santa Clause. Out of all of the films in the franchise, this original is by far the rest.
The Muppet Christmas Carol (1992)
Do we really need to elaborate? An updated classic tale that you need to watch if you haven’t already.
White Christmas (1954)
It’s not often we are all for watching a musical, but when it comes to White Christmas we are more than happy to throw out the rule book. Staring Bing Crosby this film will have you swooning for Christmas from start to finish.
Love Actually (2003)
Starring a brilliant cast, this is one heart-warming film that will suck you into the lives of eight different couples. You’ll be taken on an emotional rollercoaster that you will want to watch over and over again.
Jingle All the Way (1996)
This is a film many parents will be able to sympathise with as a Father goes out of his way to ensure his son receives the action figure of the moment, Turbo Man.
The Holiday (2006)
Another heart-warming rom-com which sees two women with guy-problems swap homes for the holidays. You will laugh, cry and revel as they meet the men of their dreams and fall in love.
