1) The Grinch
I love this movie because its a classic, how the Grinch tries to ruin Christmas but no matter what, the who's have a backup and doesn't let the Grinch ruin their Christmas. Talk about Christmas spirit! At the end he sees that he should celebrate Christmas and everything works out in his favour. That's the reason I love this film because it all changes and in a way its one of those 'happily ever after' movies.
2) Polar Express
This movie is one that most people haven't seen (well the people who I've talked to anyway) and I really don't know why! It is such a great christmas movie, people just tend to overlook it which is disappointing. It's about this boy who doesn't believe in santa but when he is ready to go to sleep, his room starts shaking and outside his house. Behold is a magical train which takes him to north pole, but with this journey comes some new friends and some decisions. I just adore everything about this film because it takes in the true meaning of christmas.
Here we have the one film everyone thinks about when someone says 'christmas movie', the one movie where the gifs become relatable and the one film where it's truly magical. All taken place between New York and the North Pole, there's one elf who doesn't fit in so he goes on a trip to New York to find out who his dad is..it doesn't all go as planned but works out in the end. It's crazy how most christmas movies tend to work out as planned in the end, real crazy.
4) All of the home alone movies
All of them.. yes, you read that correctly. I love them all even the one where it isn't Macaulay Culkin playing the little boy, that one was a strange one for me to watch because of that reason but I have learned to love it as much as the other ones. Most of the home alone movies happen where kevin either gets left home alone...hence the title or he will somehow end up in a different location to where his family is. It's truly iconic when you hear the mum scream kevin!
5) Fred Claus
This Christmas movie is a new one for me this year as I only ended up watching it this year. This year, fred claus was that one Christmas movie that was on repeat constantly on sky, talk about annoying. However that is how I learned to love it so.. Its starts off where the boy (fred) becomes a big brother when he is young, he gets overlooked and gets no attention with being the oldest. This grows in him to hate everything about Christmas until the one day when he ends up needing help and his younger brother (who is saint Nicholas) ends up being the one who saves the day, hooray! The bond between them changes as he, once again is taken on a journey to the North Pole. Again, one of those Christmas movies that magically works out in everyone's favour.
I could go on and on with more of my favourite Christmas movies but they are my top five and I hope you enjoyed this post and hope you had a good Christmas.
