One great thing about December is that you get to watch all the Christmas movies you can. They is no way you can watch too many, and no-one can tell you you can’t watch Christmas movies because it’s the only time of the year you can watch them (officially).
I discovered Elf 2 years ago (please don’t judge, it’s not known in France..) and now it’s one of my favourite movies! It’s just the perfect “feel good” movie really.. It’s the story of a man that lives in the North Pole and thinks he is an elf, but he is not. Then he is sent to New York (I think?) and you follow his adventures in the “real world”. -K
I also discovered this movie 2 years ago, the same time I discovered Elf (thanks fam!) and it has everything I like in it! Which are children, jokes, christmas carols and dance even. I think it’s on TV tonight (in France) and can’t wait to watch it! -K
3. The Santa Clause
The first Christmas movie I watched and my all time favourite! If you don’t know this film (assuming that you already know about the 2 first ones) it tells the story of a man that becomes Father Christmas. On Christmas Eve this man is at home with his son and they hear a noise on the roof, so they go out to see what it is. I’m not going to spoil the film for you, but then he becomes Father Christmas and you see how he learns to become Father Christmas and how his family deal with it. -K
4. Beauty and the Beast
I must be honest with you, my favorite Disney movie is Mulan but Beauty and the Beast sounds more Christmassy. “Be our guest, be our guest, put our service to the test” 🎶. I know Beauty and the Beast 2 is taking place during Christmas and would be more appropriate. Yet, I can clearly remember watching Beauty and the Beast at Christmas, singing the songs. Can’t do anything about it. It’s just a great movie! – C
5. Love Actually
Just a classic. I did not watch it for the first time during Christmas. It still is a Christmas movie. All the romance, music, Christmas decoration, jokes and the British accent. The British accent. And Hughe Grant as prime minister, who is just brilliant. Yes, definitely a movie to watch over Christmas with your family, a cup of tea and some chocolate. – C
We know we said five movies, but you get another one for the road!
6. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone
Is Harry Potter a Christmas movie? There is a Christmas scene in the first installment but it’s probably a bit too dark to be called a Christmas movie. Yet, I can assure you that I’ll be having a Harry Potter marathon over the Christmas holidays. Harry Potter, guys! It’s a classic. “You’re a wizard Harry!” and “It’s leviOsa not leviosA.” Mythical.
Obviously there are a lot of other Christmas movies we like, but if we had to put them all down this post would never end!
What is your favourite Christmas movie(s)?
See you soon, love
