I absolutely LOVE Christmas and everything about it, from putting the decs up to the Christmas night ‘food baby’, I just love it all. One of the things I love most about it (apart from spending time with my beautiful family and getting presents of course) is settling down with a brew to watch a Christmas film. So, carrying on from my Must Watch TV post, I’ve decided to share some of my favourite films with you.
Oh, by the way, grump….if you’re reading this, I would love one of those Panasonic 4k TV’s to be in my stocking this year so that next year I can watch these films in style (just sayin! 😝)
So, onto my top films to watch this Christmas…
Home Alone One & Two:
Okay, so these are technically two separate films but I thought I’d bung them together for this post. For me, watching the Home Alone films is a must at this time of the year because they are just classics. It doesn’t matter how many times you watch them, they always make you laugh and you’re always waiting to mouth that one “Keep the change you filthy animal” line alongside Kevin (don’t deny it, I know that you do it too!). Why just Home Alone One & Two? Because, personally I really don’t think the others were needed as they go downhill from here.
Elf, what a film! I have to admit that although it’s been out for a while, I only watched Elf for the first time last year but now, it’s one that I will watch every year! You can’t help but fall in love with Buddy (Will Ferrell) as (after being raised by Santa’s elves), he goes on a search for his real father (in full Elf outfit!). This film is both funny and heartwarming at the same time and is definitely a must watch this Christmas.
The Muppets Christmas Carol:
Now this is one that the grump made me watch a couple of years ago. Just in case you don’t know, Mark’s nickname for me is Beaker, this is because I apparently sound like him and pull the same expressions as him – charming hey! (I also think my orange hair has something to do with it). Anyway, this film is a great version of the classic by Charles Dickens and is just a whole load of fun, that at the same time, gets a great message across and really makes you think (Patrick Stewart’s version of this film is great too!).
This is my lovely big sis’s favourite film and she’s the reason I will now watch it every year. I remember watching Prancer as a child but it was only last year (when my sister bought it for us) that I remembered how gorgeous it was. It’s a heartwarming tale of a little girl who cares for an injured reindeer (she believes is Prancer) that her father wanted to shoot. If you’re looking for a film that is suitable for both children and adults and really makes you feel warm inside, then this is the one to watch.
