The Muppets Christmas Carol
I love watching this film on Christmas Eve while munching on mince pies and singing along with the Muppets to ‘One more sleep til Christmas’ being my favourite song. Can you believe this film is 24 years old?!
Another Crimbo RomCom that has both really sad moments as well as really funny ones, from Liam Neeson’s character having to deal with being a single parent after his wife’s death to Hugh Grant’s dance scene as the Prime Minister in Number 10.
Keeeeeevvvvvvviiiiinnnnnnnnnn!! Love this film, also how cute was Macauley as a kid? I have no idea how they could manage to forget about their child as they head off on their Christmas holiday (on more than one occasion!) but but it does make a good film.
One of my more recent Christmas film favourites, with voices from Jim Broadbent, Hugh Laurie and Imelda Staunton, where Arthur ensures that no child is forgotten about at Christmas when a present for Gwen is left behind.
National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
Clark Griswold and his family show us how not to do Christmas! This is another film that even after watching many times still makes me laugh with cousin Eddie rocking up outside their home with his trailer and when they go to take their Christmas tree home.
Fed up of all the feel good Christmas films that make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside? Then this is the film for you with its chain smoking, alcoholic, thieving, sex addicted Santa Claus!
Its A Wonderful Life
The oldest film on my list as it was made 70 years ago in 1946, it is about a man who thinks that his life is no longer worth living and decides to commit suicide on Christmas Eve. He is saved by an Angel called Clarence who shows him how other people’s lives would be had he never existed.
The Nightmare Before Christmas
I love Tim Burton films and this is probably my most favourite film ever! I do see this more as a Halloween film but other people see it as a Christmas one so that’s why it will feature in my Halloween favourites too.
