My Top 5 Christmas Films

Monday, 19 December 2016

It's finally time for me to start getting festive. I am not into all the festivities in like November and early December but seeing as this is the Christmas week, I can finally start getting excited and what better way to do that than watching a few Christmas films.

Here are my top five christmas films to watch this holiday season.

#1 - Miracle on 34th Street

Starring the late and great Richard Attenborough, this film will make you believe Santa Claus is real again. It's magical, full of joy and hope and will even bring a tear to the eye. Miracle on 34th is the best Christmas film in my opinion.

#2 - Home Alone

I mean I don't really need to say much here do I.

#3 - It's a Wonderful Life

There is nothing better than sitting watching a black and white movie, wrapped up warm with a hot drink. Made in 1946 this uplifting movie is a Christmas classic. It is currently showing at The BFI Southbank on the big screen so I recommend getting down there this week to view it how it is meant to be seen. Book tickets here.

#4 - Die Hard

So the debate is still out with a lot of my friends whether this is a Christmas film or not. But I am a true believer that it is (it is set at Christmas let's remember). Die Hard can add a little Christmas action to the holiday season.

#5 - Elf 

The one liners, Zooey Deschanel and the songs all make this a Christmas favourite.

So there you have it, my 5 favourite Christmas films. I recommend others like Jingle All The Way, The Holiday, Love Actually and E.T but didn't want to ramble on for too long.

What will you be watching this Christmas?
