Fave Christmas Films

I love Christmas.

I love being able to see my family and spend time with them. I love the food. I love the joy that seems to hang in the air. I also love the festive movies (or generally films that air this time of year!) I'm not a huge fan of a lot of the Christmas films, but there are some that I always watch this time of year!

1 - Love Actually
I'm not much of a rom-com person, but this makes me laugh and is just such a feel good movie for this time of year. I only watched this for the first time about 6 years ago, and I didn't like it to start with, but the older I've got and the more empathy I've had with some characters (Karen mainly!), I've come to love it! In fact, I've watched it about 5 times in the past week alone...

2 - Home Alone
A classic Christmas film which plays constantly on TV through December and then the sequels... All before repeating every night on ITV2... It's also one of the few Christmas films that I can watch over and over again, without getting bored of it!

3 - Philosopher's Stone
Technically not a Christmas film, but the whole Potter Saga seems to be on each weekend over the festive period, and who doesn't love the idea of a Christmas at Hogwarts?! Plus, this has one hella awesome Christmas scene and that totally makes up for it not being a festive movie in general!

4 - The Santa Claus
One of my fave films from my childhood! One of Tim Allen's best films! I loved this one, but wish there had been no sequels as it totally ruined this original. I haven't seen this as much as I'd have liked to, but it's pretty funny to watch on a winter evening.

5 - Star Wars
I've included this for a few reasons. It's not a Christmas movie, but the first time I saw any of the series, was in 2005 and it was two nights before Christmas and I had no idea what I was watching, but I loved the characters and the story. Thankfully it was Phantom that I saw first so it was in story order, but it was the only one I had seen and I loved it. I loved Jar-Jar too - AND NO ONE CAN CHANGE THAT OPINION.
I watch this every year all the way through now, and have now started to add in Awakens!

What are your fave films for the holidays? Any the same as me? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)
