It’s almost Christmas, and I feel like this year has been a very strange one. It’s taken me so long to feel even remotely festive, and I just don’t have the same spirit as I normally do. I normally love getting cosy and sticking on a Christmas film, so I thought doing this would help me get into the Christmas mood – which it did! If you’ve been like me this year, here are a few of my favourite Christmas films that get me feeling festive.
This is probably top of most people’s lists – it’s certainly a popular one! It’s not my absolute favourite Christmas film but it is definitely one to life your spirits. This is a good one to have on in the background while you’re putting up your tree and decorations.
I feel like this is a love it or hate it film. For me, it’s definitely a love! It’s my absolute favourite Christmas film and I usually watch it multiple times a year. I also really love the remake and although the plot is slightly different, it’s still really good. Nothing will beat the Jim Cary version though, it’s a real childhood classic for me.
The best Disney film to watch this time of year has to be Frozen. It just screams Christmas doesn’t it? It’s a lovely one to watch when you want a little sing-a-long.
A film that might not be intentionally a Christmas film, but everyone knows you watch it around this time of year! This will always be a favourite of mine, I love everything about it.
The Ghost of Greville Lodge
Finally, one that a lot of people have never heard of . Again, this is a childhood favourite of mine, and will always be one of those classic Christmas films. I used to watch it all the time as a child and I really love the storyline. It’s more of a serious film than an uplifting one so it’s one you need to sit down and properly watch.
Honourable mention goes to The Nightmare Before Christmas! But do you class this a a Halloween or Christmas film?
What are your favourite festive films? Let me know!
Until next time.
Elf and the Grinch are the Christmas movies at the top of my list too!
Home Alone and Love Actually are mine. Although I think Love Actually is a bit like The Holiday, not really a Christmas movie but always on this time of year x
My personal favourite is It’s A Wonderful Life, it’s in black and white, but my Nan would put it on every year before Christmas! My mum also loves Miracle on 34th Street!
Love, Amie ❤

I always find it so hard to choose a favourite film, there are so many that I really enjoy watching for so many different reasons! Home Alone is definitely one film that makes me think of Christmas, haha. I remember seeing it on TV every year when growing up!
I’ve never seen the last one, but yes on all the others!
Ooh, I love Elf! I quite like The Holiday too, though it isn’t my fave x
The Grinch film used to scare me when I was younger but I absolutely love it now! Great list! I will definitely be checking out The Ghost of Greville Lodge! Home Alone has to be my all-time favourite I think.
