Christmas Favourite Films

Christmas is my favorite season for many reasons, but I do love the early evenings where we get to snuggle up on the sofa together, wrapped up in blankets, eating pop-corn and watching some festive fun films with the family.

The best part of the Winter season is the TV channel surfing and stumbling upon a film that you haven't seen in a while, a film that captures a festive feeling, putting you in a jolly good mood.

The best movies are the classics festive family films that we re-watch time and time again every year.

Below are our favorite Christmas movies:

The Grinch

Based on the beloved children's tale by Dr. Seuss. The reclusive green Grinch who lives up in the mountain decides to ruin Christmas for the cheery citizens of Whoville. That is until he encounters the endearing Cindy Lou Who.

Home Alone

When Kevin is accidentally left Home Alone while his family head to Paris for Christmas, he somehow finds himself in the middle of a robbery plot. Plenty of booby traps later, he single-handedly saves Christmas.


A family favorite since the 80s, the cute Mogwai, vs the horrid gremlins and all the dastardly behavior they get up too.


My favorite Christmas film. I love watching Buddy through his adventure. He grew up working in Santa’s workshop in the North Pole, discovers that he is not, in fact, an elf, but a human. He goes on an adventure to New York City to find his father, where his love for all things Christmas wreaks havoc. 

The Polar Express

Based on the beloved children’s book by Chris Van Allsburg, The Polar Express.  This is an animated film that follows the journey of a boy that doubts Christmas. The boy finds himself on a magical train destined for Santa’s home in the North Pole, and during the journey he discovers that magic never fades for those who choose to believe.
