Ive failed miserably with blogmas this year , due to being sick at the beginning of the month my posts have been super delayed! I’ve also been in a bit of a pickle with what to write for the rest of the month, like do I carry on with blogmas? Do I just go completely off the subject and write what I want? Etc.. after spending hours trying to decide what to do about the whole sitch – I’ve decided I’m going to carry on with Blogmas! But rather than posting a blog a day I’m going to be posting every 2 days, and the Christmas posts will start to come more out of the bag. *pinky promise*.
So today I thought I’d try and make it super Christmassy with a ‘Favourite Christmas Films’ post. Aahhh, I absolutely live for Christmas films, but on the other hand I’m really strange if I like a Christmas film I’ll watch it until I’ve learnt every line rather than switching it up and watching something new.. CONFESSION TIME – I’ve never watched the grinch.. please don’t hate me ha.
Naughty Or Nice: I first watched this film about 2 years ago and I must have watched it at least 20 times since. It’s one of those films that’s really ‘aww’ if that makes any sense haha..
“Krissy Kringle (Hilarie Burton) receives Santa’s naughty or nice book by accident and starts exposing the naughty deeds of people around her”.
The Christmas Chronicles: This film is a new Netflix official, I was so excited when I seen the trailer and had every right too, it’s so good. It’s not one of those cheesy Christmas films where everyone falls madly in love towards the end – but it is definitely something to watch.
“The story of sister and brother, Kate and Teddy Pierce, whose Christmas Eve plan to catch Santa Claus on camera turns into an unexpected journey that most kids could only dream about“.
Home Alone: One of my all time favourite Christmas films has to be home alone I think I speak for everyone when I say this – I mean? Is it really Christmas if you haven’t seen Kevin McCallister? It’s like the Coca Cola advert you have to see it at least twice before the thought of Christmas even sinking in.
“When bratty 8-year-old Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) acts out the night before a family trip to Paris, his mother (Catherine O’Hara) makes him sleep in the attic. After the McCallisters mistakenly leave for the airport without Kevin, he awakens to an empty house and assumes his wish to have no family has come true. But his excitement sours when he realizes that two con men (Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern) plan to rob the McCallister residence, and that he alone must protect the family home“.
Fred Claus: Another classic for me, funny story me and Karl watched this when we first moved into our house because our Sky wasn’t fitted yet. This was in August haha! I love this film.. again it’s not a cheesy romantic one.
“Of the two Claus brothers, Fred (Vince Vaughn) is the troublemaker and polar opposite of his saintly sibling, Nicholas (Paul Giamatti). When Fred’s criminal ways finally land him in big trouble, Nicholas bails him out and brings him to the North Pole to work off the debt by making toys. The headaches mount for St. Nick, who not only must deal with his troublemaking brother, but also an efficiency expert who has come to evaluate Santa’s operation”
Christmas With The Kranks: I’ve lost count how many times I’ve watched this this year, me and Karl absolutely love this film. It’s one of those that you can leave on in the background whilst you’re doing something and still laugh along with it.
“Finally alone for the holidays, Luther (Tim Allen) and Nora Krank (Jamie Lee Curtis) plan to eschew the Christmas traditions and take a cruise in the Caribbean instead. This doesn’t sit well with their Christmas-obsessed neighbors Vic Frohmeyer (Dan Aykroyd) and Walt Scheel (M. Emmet Walsh), who are determined to win the annual “best decorated street” competition, and the Kranks soon find themselves social outcasts because of their lack of Christmas spirit”.
The Polar Express: Another absolute fave of mine, this is one of those films I can just get cosy on the couch to with a nice hot water bottle, a blanket and hot chocolate. I love it.
“Tom Hanks and director Robert Zemeckis (“Forrest Gump”; “Cast Away”) reunite for “Polar Express,” an inspiring adventure based on the beloved children’s book by Chris Van Allsburg. When a doubting young boy takes an extraordinary train ride to the North Pole, he embarks on a journey of self-discovery that shows him that the wonder of life never fades for those who believe“.
You’re all probably wondering where Elf comes into this post, but personally I’m just not a fan of it, don’t get me wrong if it’s on I’ll watch it but it’s not one of my favourites.
Ahh, what’s your favourite Christmas films?
As always thank you so much for reading,
