My Top 10 Christmas Films

I am a huge fan of Christmas films and have been known to watch them all year round.
Top 10 Best Christmas Films
10. Deck The Halls
Danny DeVito wants to get the Christmas lights on his house seen from space, cue neighbourhood rivalry & comedy. It’s a great one to watch when you’re not after anything too deep.
Deck the halls
9. Home Alone
Kevin is accidentally left home alone when his family forget about him as they leave for their holiday, sounds unrealistic but comedy ensues. He loves it at first, getting to stay up late & eat what he wants – every kid’s dream, but what to do when the burglars try to get in!
Home Alone
8. The Christmas Shoes
This is not a happy, feel-good Christmas film. It will break your heart. A little boy’s mum is terminally ill and he overhears her say she’d love to go dancing. He wants to buy her the perfect Christmas shoes but will he be able to afford them in time?

7. The Polar Express
With Tom Hanks as the train conductor voice, it can’t go wrong! Picked up by the magical train on Christmas Eve, children are given the chance to see Father Christmas but as things start to go wrong, will they all get there?

6. It’s A Wonderful Life
My dad’s favourite Christmas film. It seems as though everything is going wrong for George and he wishes he’d never been born. He gets his wish and begins to see what the world would’ve been like without him. 1946 black & white classic.
It’s a Wonderful Life
5. Elf
I think everyone must have seen Elf a million times! A baby in an orphanage crawls into Father Christmas’s sack when he’s delivering presents & ends up in the North Pole. Raised as an elf, by adulthood he knows he’s not like the others & sets off on a quest to find his real family.
4. The Santa Clause
When Tim Allen knocks Santa off the roof, he has to take his place as the new Santa. He isn’t ready for the job but what can he do when half the world are about to wake up with no presents!
The Santa Clause
3. Miracle On 34th Street
I prefer the Mara Wilson (Matilda) version. A little girl who doesn’t believe in Father Christmas because her mum told her he wasn’t real meets a man who might change her mind! Kris Kringle is the new Santa for Macy’s and he finds himself granting even the most impossible of wishes.
Miracle on 34th Street
2. Love Actually
I love watching this while putting the tree up but I have to say, I tend to watch this film a fair few times over the Christmas period. It tells the story of so many different people who’s stories interweave within each other’s. The cast is British A-List and it is definitely a feel-good film.
Love Actually
1. The Grinch
My number 1! Jim Carrey plays the Grinch who hates Christmas! The Whos In Whoville love Christmas and every year it brings back dreadful memories for him so this year he sets out to destroy it. He decides to dress as Father Christmas & steal everybody’s presents on Christmas Eve so they will wake up to nothing! Can a little girl convince him of the true meaning of Christmas?

      You really should, it’s unrealistic but very quotable & family friendly (kids over 7 I’d say) xx

    Superb blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Thanks!

      Thank you! I’d say start with WordPress first & find your feet, then make a decision 🙂

    I have to say watching Love Actually at Christmas and hearing that line “thank you… Ant OR Dec” tickles me every time. Great choices!

      It’s definitely a wonderful film in my eyes! Emma Thompson’s character listening to Joni Mitchell before they go out has my heart broken every time!
