Arhhh it's "the most wonderful time of the yearrrr" and it's fair to say that I'm super excited, I actually love the built up to Christmas as much as love Christmas Day itself ha ha. One thing that I really enjoy doing during the lead up to Christmas is watching all the festive movies, me and my boyfriend have always been big movies lovers ( we love a good ole movie night in with lots of treats, we do) but movie nights get even better when Christmas movies are involved and you can get all cosy and snuggled up whilst it's chilly and dark outside, so today I thought I'd share with you all SOME of my absolute favourites....
1 & 2 - Home Alone 1 and 2 have been all time favourites of mine ever since I was little, I love them as much now as I did when I was growing up and still watch them over and over during the run up to Christmas, in fact I started watching them in September this year ( I just couldn't wait any longer he he).
3 - Arthur Christmas is amazing and became a favourite of mine from the very first time I saw it. Basically Santa misses a child, yup that's right he misses a child, he may have an army of one million combat-style Field Elves and a vast, state-of-the-art control centre under the ice of the North Pole, but how on earth could this incredible operation have MISSED one child?! Well, Santa's son Arthur, retired Grandsanta, a cute elf, an old sleigh and some untrained reindeer, set out on a crazy mission to deliver the last present to the missed child! It's cute, funny and definitely a Christmas classic!
4 - Elf is just amazing.... “The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.” ,“I just like to smile. Smiling’s my favourite.” Buddy's one liners and the things he does just cracks me up but if there’s one thing Buddy the Elf has taught us, it’s to enjoy the simple pleasures in life. This includes candy, candy canes, candy corn and syrup. He’s also all about spreading the Christmas cheer through smiles and singing, bless him.
5 - The Santa Clause is another absolute classic that I've loved since I was little. Tim Allen plays Scott Calvin who's a total scrooge and general misery when it comes to Christmas but is soon forced to take over the job of Santa Claus when he and his son Charlie witness the previous Santa Claus falling off a roof. There is actually a second and third Santa Claus which I do like but the original is my favourite.
6 - Love Actually... Arhhh romance, comedy and Christmas all in one film, now that's my kind of film ha ha. Love Actually explores the ups and downs of relationships in the weeks building up to Christmas, I just love it!
7 - Frozen isn't really a Christmas movie as such but with all the ice and snow it has a definite wintry feel and lets face it, it's an absolute corker of a film and the soundtrack ain't half bad either.
8 - The Grinch actually used to scare me when I was little and I never really got into it until a few years back but now I love it! It isn't your average, cheery Christmas movie as the Grinch hates happiness and hates Christmas and plans to steal all the decorations and all the presents from the town Whoville, but it's definitely one to watch at this time of year.
And there you have it beaut's, a few Christmas movies that I love! I could go on and on when it comes to festive movies but I have restrained myself some what he he.
What are your favourite Christmas movies?? I'd love to know!
