3. Advent Calendar || Favourite Christmas Films

I don’t know about you but one of my Christimas traditions is to always watch my favourite Christmas films. In fact, I always watch Love Actually 1st December and, although it’s become a New Year tradition in my house, I just have to watch The Holiday. Those two are, without a doubt, my absolute favourite Christmas films. Now, I don’t watch a lot of Christmas films so to make a list I had to ask for a bit of Christmas assistance from Twitter. I’ll start off with my own personal favourites and end the post with what other people have said were their favourites. Let’s dive into the Christmas craze.gold-divider-png-114-images-in-collection-page-3-gold-divider-png-8041_1380

1. LOVE ACTUALLY

u31LfJTP8FZGnTE3kEDUATYEX00-1I love EVERYTHING about this film! It is possibly one of my favourite films of all time (not just for Christmas). I don’t have any other film that I need to watch but this bad-boy here. It is nothing less than a masterpiece and it’s not Christmas without it. Thank God my future husband loves it, too!

2. THE HOLIDAY

Although I know I lot of people who like it I might still say that it is one of the most underrated Christmas films. It’s funny, it’s sweet, and it’s so relatable! Great music, amazing acting. What’s not to like? (This film is also where we learn that Jude Law is hot even when he’s portraying a dad who wears glasses. Mother, may I?).

3. WHILE YOU WERE SLEEPING

Now don’t get me wrong. I think the film is fun, sweet and really Christmasy, but what I love about it is that it tackles one of the biggest issues around Christmas: loneliness.

4. THE POLAR EXPRESS

Onesheet

We slowly enter the realm of films that I don’t really watch. The Polar Express is really good, though, and if it’s on TV I tend to watch it. But it’s not the one I intentionally go for if I’m in the mood for a Christmas film.

5. HOME ALONE

Specifically 1-3 according to people on Twitter. I’ve seen all 3 as a kid but they’re a bit too American for me (sorry).

6. SANTA CLAUS: THE MOVIE

I really have nothing to add. Let’s just move on.

7. WHITE CHRISTMAS

I must admit that I’d never even heard about this one before. I might give it a shot this Christmas.

8. ELF

Again, a bit too American for me. The humour is a bit… yeah.

9. HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS

For some reason I have a feeling that Dr. Seuss is big in English speaking countries. I was a teenager when I first heard of his stories and so I’m not really a big fan of this film. 

10. THE MUPPET CHRISTMAS CAROL

Never watched it, don’t intend to. I really hate anything to do with puppets. Sorry! I’m sure this film is lovely if you’re into that sort of thing.

That concludes my list of Christmas films. Like the Christmas playlist it’s designed to get you in a lovely Christmas mood. I hope I’m not the only who’s really excited for Christmas, family hygge, food, presents etc. Come back next week for my final Advent Calendar blog post where it’s all about Danish treats and sweets.

Cheers!

    My sister and I watch The Holiday and Love Actually each year too. My favorite Christmas movie of all time is Scrooged with Bill Murray. It’s very American and very 80s, but if you’re a fan of A Christmas Carol, you might like it.

    1. Yay! They are great films.
      I’m not a fan of A Christmas Carol but Twitter was which is fine by me. I’m guessing there’s a lot of Christmas films out there yet to be watched.
      Thank you for stopping by.

  2. Even though we don’t have children, my husband and I both enjoy Polar Express. Of course, Elf is a favorite. White Christmas is a tradition as my mother always watched it with her mother. Growing up in the 80’s, they re-played Home Alone so often, that I can do without! LOL
