The BEST Christmas Films

I'm back from another tiny little blogging break and I'm feeling all festive. I was away in London for the night so didn't get chance to post yesterday but it couldn't be helped and I'm so excited to get writing about our little trip. Anyway, aren't Christmas films just the best? I love snuggling up on the sofa with the duvet or a fluffy blanket, a cup of tea, and a festive film on the TV. I've done similar posts to this in the past but as Chrismas is well and truly on the way now, I wanted to do another and I have a few other films to add now. Let me know if you enjoy any of these aswell!


 I really don't think there is a better Christmas film than Elf. It has been my favourite for so many years now, I've lost count. I remember looking forward to watching this each year when I was younger, and I'm still exactly the same now. Will Ferrell is amazing as Buddy the Elf and in my opinion it's probably the best film he's done, it's just hilarious and I laugh the same each time I watch it. It's fun to see his transition from the north pole to New York and working out how different life is, I think it's just such a nice story. I'll never get bored of it.

Arthur Christmas

This film came out in 2011 but I only got round to watching it last year! I can't believe it took me so long, as it was a film I knew so many people loved. It's one of those films that now I've watched, I totally get the hype and I know it's going to be one I watch every single year. The story of Santa missing out one child at Christmas and his son Arthur deciding to take it upon himself to deliver presents is brilliant and there's just something about it that's so heartwarming. It's a funny film but also little emotional, or it is to me anyway, I cry at most films! I don't think it matters what age you are, this film is just lovely.

Love Actually

Ahhh one of the best films ever! This film puts a huge smile on my face every single time I watch it. This has been one of my go to Christmas films for such a long time now, it's kind of tradition for it to be on ITV several times each year isn't it? I always end up watching it a good few times before the day and it always makes me warm and fuzzy inside. I love that each character has their own little story going on, the one with Emma Thompson and Alan Rickmans characters always makes me a little sad, but then the one with Hugh Grant and Martine McCutcheons characters makes me so happy, the ending is perfect 💛It's not Christmas without this film.

Deck The Halls

 I actually often forget about this film but whenever it's on the TV at Christmas, I like to watch it. I remember watching it a few times when I was younger, I'm not sure if we even went to the cinema to see it on Christmas Eve maybe, so it's always nice to watch it but it is one I forget about sometimes! When I saw it was on TV a few weeks ago though, I put it on straight away and enjoyed it so much. It's basically about two dads who compete with each other to have the best house at Christmas and the best decorations, and it has Danny Devito in it who is always funny. It's one of those films that really gets me excited for Christmas.

Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause

 This film always makes me think of Christmas Day. The Santa Clause films seem to be played most years on Christmas Day on BBC I think so it's kind of tradition to watch it while unwrapping presents or just afterwards. Last year we watched the third film and that's probably my favourite of them all, so I can't wait to watch it again this year. This is the film where Scott Calvin aka Santa has to try and hide that he's actually Santa and that he lives in the North Pole from his in laws. There is also Jack Frost who is wanting to take over the North Pole, so I definitely feel it's got a better story than the first two films. This is another one of those films that just makes me feel all fuzzy inside and I love sitting in my pj's watching this with a tasty breakfast.

Nativity 1 & 2

 Lastly, the Nativity films had to be on my list! The first film with Martin Freeman will always be one that makes me laugh. He plays an under achieving teacher who doesn't get along with his new teaching assistant Mr Poppy (though the kids love him) and they basically have to do whatever they can to get one of his ex girlfriends back from America to help film the schools nativity, and he's also still in love with her. It's hilarious in parts, the kids in the film are so talented and there is one in particular who just seems like a little star. The second film is just as good I think too. This time David Tennant replaces Martin Freeman as the class teacher and the story this time is that the class and Mr Poppy want to enter a singing competition and they kind of go and do it behind everyone's backs and it causes a load of drama! Like the first one, it's very funny and I love each character. I'm still yet to watch the third film so I'll have to do that this year!
So that's all the Christmas films I'm looking forward to watching again this year soon! I'm sure they'll be others too but these are my favourites. Do you like any of these too? What film always makes you think of Christmas?
