Top 5 Christmas Films

Merry Christmas Eve everyone! Tomorrow is the big day and I don't know about you but I'm so excited to spend some time with my family and have a really festive day! One thing I love to do on Christmas (besides stuff my face with pigs in blankets) is watch all of my favourite Christmas films. Here are my top 5!

Home Alone
Home Alone (1 & 2) has always been a firm family favourite. No Christmas is complete without someone saying "Merry Christmas Ya Filthy Animal"  and we have Kevin McCallister to thank for that. (In fact, I find myself quoting the film on regular basis, not just at Christmas haha).

If you haven't seen the film (where have you been?!) it's about a young boy who, after wishing his family would disappear, is accidentally left home alone over Christmas. After his house becomes the prime target for wet bandits and burglars, Harry & Marv , he is forced to become "the man of the house" and defend it. It's completely hilarious and you will love it!

I've already mentioned in my elf nail tutorial (HERE) that Elf is one of my favourite Christmas films ever! It's such a heart warmer and you can't help but love Buddy.

For those who haven't seen it, Elf is about human Buddy who is accidentally transported to the North Pole as a toddler from an orphanage. Papa Elf, being the softy he is, decides to adopt Buddy and raise him as an elf. It soon becomes clear that he is not like normal elves. After failing to make quota on the toys he's making, Buddy discovers that he is actually human and travels to New York to find his real Dad. There's only one problem, his Dad is on the naughty list.

The Family Man 
I've never really heard any else mention The Family Man as a favourite but to me it's an absolute must-watch over Christmas. The film follows main character Jack (Nicholas Cage) who leaves his girlfriend Kate, to become a fast-lane investment broker in New York. Years later, he's at the top of his game and is living the high life until one Christmas when he is caught in the middle of a grocery store hold up and manages to disarm the gunman. The next morning he strangely finds himself waking up next to his ex-girlfriend Kate and soon realizes his life isn't what he thought it was.

I absolutely love this film and love seeing the progression of Jack's character. I won't give too much away but I love little Annie and would recommend this film to anyone.

The Grinch 
There's two kinds of people at Christmas, Buddy the Elf and The Grinch. Whilst I'm definitely Buddy the Elf at Christmas I feel like I'm the Grinch throughout the rest of the year haha.

The Grinch is the highest grossing Christmas film of all time and brings to life Dr Seuss's Christmas classic. Jim Carrey is hilarious as the main character and you will love him!

The Snowman

My final Christmas film favourite is The Snowman. For a film with no words it is truly stunning and always gets me a bit emotional. Illustrated by Raymond Briggs and put to the tune of Peter Auty's 'Walking In the Air' The Snowman is a breath taking film and one you should all watch.
