Cozy Up And Start the Film

Good morning!

What better way to spend a Sunday in December than watching a Christmas film?

You can cozy up on the sofa with a cup of hot chocolate and make believe that all can be well in the world if we embrace the spirit of Christmas. Those are my favourites, the ones that have a little magical feel to them, that make you feel fuzzy and warm and bring a tear to your eye. Here are some favourites:

  • Jingle All the Way
  • Deck the Halls
  • National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
  • The Grinch
  • Santa Claus the Movie
  • Elf
  • Four Christmases
  • Love Actually
  • Arthur Christmas

Now I know there are lots more that could be on the list including some that cause controversy as not really being a Christmas film. I’m thinking Die Hard, Home Alone and Gremlins. All perfectly acceptable candidates but a good Christmas film for me is one that encompasses the excitement in the build up and the elements that make up a typical Christmas Day and why we do the things we do.

Of course, some version of A Christmas Carol has to be watched, too.

So grab your comfiest clothes, your snuggliest blanket and a hot cup of comfort and settle down this Sunday to a bit of Christmas cheer.

What will you be watching?
