So it’s nearly Christmas; come on now it’s almost December and we’ve got a lot to do!
One of those things to do is to snuggle up the fire with hot chocolates in our hand and onesies/Christmas jumpers on and watch some good old Christmas films!
So I thought I’d share with you the top 10 films that are on my list of Christmas films that I’m going to be watching over the next few weeks.
2. Love Actually
Probably one of my favourite films ever! Every year me and mum (just us, no men allowed) we snuggle up with Cadbury chocolate snowmen and enjoy this amazing film!
3. It’s a Wonderful Life
Now contrary to popular households, my childhood Christmases never included the Home Alone series but instead we always watch the oldies like It’s a Wonderful Life (one of my faves!) and a few more I’ve listed below – but this one definitely tops!
4. Family Man
Again, not a Christmas film that anyone else I know watches each year, and although I’m not Nicholas Cage’s biggest fan, this film is adorable and so heart warming and perfectly captures the classic ‘Family Man’ and family life!
5. Polar Express
A Christmas Classic let’s be honest, who wouldn’t want a ride with Tom Hanks on The Polar Express?
6. Santa Claus
Tim; what a guy! You couldn’t cast a better actor for this role and it has become a classic within our family (and the second one two if we’ve got enough time!).
7. Miracle on 34th Street
Now since, I’m a fan of Matilda and mum loves the good old black and white versions, we tend to fit in both of these gems during December. So sweet, festive and heart warming! I also did used to have a slight crush on Dylan Mcdermot in this film – anyone else? Just me?
8. White Christmas
Mum loves a bit of Bing at Christmas, what can I say?
9. The Holiday
What a film! Come on, who doesn’t love the Holiday! Great cast and wonderful storyline (even if it is a bit hollywood for a Christmas film!) – and even if you don’t like it, at least watch it in order to look at Jude Law for an hour or two eh?
10. Bishops Wife
Now, this is probably a film not known to many, but I’d be interested if anyone does enjoy this film? It’s another black and white classic that my mum has introduced and it’s just sort of stuck as tradition in our family. Also if anyone’s ever watched the old Pink Panther films (no not Steve Martin) with David Niven (right), you’ll know he’s hilarious and his work alongside Cary Grant (left) is brilliantly filmed in this fab film!
So here’s a few of my favourite Christmas Classics, I’d love to know if any of these feature in your traditional go-tos at Christmas, or any others that you love to watch at this time of year?
PS we may have watched Elf already the other day, anyone else already started watching them?
