Blogmas Day 14 - My top 5 Christmas movies

This is actually pretty hard for me to decide on, because I’m not sure there’s 5 films I really enjoy and watch at Christmas, but with that in mind, I’ll do my best and put them in reverse order :)

5.  Wallace and Gromit (the original)

The first time I saw this, was at Christmas, on BBC1.  I’m going back years and years ago, it was totally different from anything I’d seen before and the story was fantastic.  I can really relate to someone who loves cheese :)  I love watching any of these types of animations at Christmas (or any time of year to be honest!), The Chicken Run was another great one, and Shaun the sheep… I could go on, but you get the picture :)

4.  Santa Claus the Movie

Who doesn’t love a great film about Father Christmas at Christmas?  It’s such a lovely festive film, perfect to watch just before or just after Christmas dinner :)

3.  Home Alone

Great great great film, love it!  I love everything about it, how big the family is, their lovely house, how festive and cosy it feels, the crazy shenanigans of the burglers trying to get in, all of it, and of course, the late John Candy :)  I really hope they air it Christmas day as for some reason, I don’t own it on DVD… I think I’ll need to remedy that!

2.  It’s a Wonderful Life

This film I need to be on when I’m opening Christmas presents in the morning.  It’s such a great film, really iconic.  Great acting (especially the bit above the swimming pool, lol!) and a great story, and lets not forget the iconic line ‘every time a bell rings an angel gets his wings’ :)

1.  Elf

Oh man do I love this film!  I watch it all year round :)  It’s fun, festive, has Will Ferrell who always makes me laugh, silliness (which I’m a big fan of), Zooey Deschanel who is amazing… everything is right for this film, I love love love it :)  It was on the other day (I’ve lost my DVD of it), I just hope its’ on Christmas eve too, and Christmas day, and boxing day! They’re my top 5 films for Christmas, sorry it’s not a super long post but just something quick I wanted to share with you :)
