Feature | Favourite Christmas Films


Since I’m participating in Blogmas this year, I figured I should make sure at least some of my posts were holiday/Christmas related. So, on this fine Saturday evening, I bring you the second of my ‘Favourite Christmas X’ posts. Last week I shared some of my Favourite Christmas Songs, and this week we move to a different medium – my Favourite Christmas Films! The cold weather of Christmas always gives me the perfect excuse to stay inside and do nothing more taxing than watch a film (or two) to while away an afternoon (or two). So I thought I’d share some of my favourite Christmas films – they’re hardly niche or little-known but I just love them all the same, so without further ado…

Miracle on 34th Street (1994)

Love Actually (2003)

The Holiday (2006)

Enchanted (2007)

Frozen (2013)

The Muppet Christmas Carol (1992)

Home Alone (1990)

Die Hard (1988)

The Gruffalo (2009)

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (2001)

Stardust (2007)

Mary Poppins (1964)


Well there we have it, those were some of my favourite Christmas films. As you might have gathered, though some of these are specifically festive films, others just happen to be family films that are usually on TV around the holiday season so it’s become something of a tradition to watch them at this time of year. I can’t wait to get snuggled up with a blanket and a nice mug of hot chocolate and watch them this holiday season!

What films do you enjoy watching during the festive period?

  1. I need to get on my Christmas film watching soon as I’ve only seen Die Hard, Nativity! and Family Man this Christmas- Love Actually, Home Alone 1 and 2 and Elf are my favourites!

    • I’m ashamed to say the only remotely Christmassy film I’ve seen so far this year is A Christmas Prince on Netflix (it’s gloriously TERRIBLE) but as soon as I’m at home for Christmas I’ll be breaking out all the DVDs of Love Actually and Home Alone!

      • I’ve not seen that film, but it seems to be watched by quite a few people as it always keeps popping up on my Twitter timeline…


  2. Omg Stardust is honestly one of the most underrated films out there. It’s just so magical! Also that one scene from The Holiday where Cameron Diaz dreams about her life as a really sad trailer. Relatable 😂😂


    • Stardust is legitimately one of my favourite films – it’s a tad different from the book but I love both of them a lot! My favourite bit is on the flying ship with Captain Shakespeare, it’s so much fun.

      I was so pleasantly surprised by how much I ended up enjoying The Holiday the first time I watched it – and I related to poor Iris so much! I haven’t watched it yet this year but I’m so ready for it.
