It’s one of our favourite Christmas traditions, the Turkey has been eaten, the presents unwrapped, and the mulled wine drunk. Now is the time to gather the family round to watch your favourite Christmas film while Grandad falls asleep in his chair, paper hat still atop his head. There are so many classics to choose from, but we’ll just look at 4 of our all time favourite Christmas films.
Home Alone tells the story of any parent’s nightmare and any 8 year olds dream. When 8 year old Kevin McCallister is left behind by his family rushing off to begin their Christmas holiday, chaos ensues as a pair of moronic burglars target his family home. Home Alone is just as much a Christmas tradition as the tree, turkey and all the trimmings, and no Christmas day would be quite the same without it.
This is the heart-warming tale of Buddy the elf, a man raised in the North Pole as an elf. Buddy is sent to New York City to meet his father and find out more about his own identity. With Will Ferrell playing Buddy the elf, this family film is a laugh out loud comedy that will keep the whole family happy.
How The Grinch Stole Christmas
This Dr Seuss story tells the tale of the land of Whoville and its inhabitants who love Christmas. The Grinch is a creature who lives outside of Whoville and plots to steal Christmas away from the Who’s. This character, brilliantly played by Jim Carrey, doesn’t know what’s hit him when a young Who, Mary Lou Who, attempts to befriend him.
The Nightmare Before Christmas
Who can forget this Tim Burton classic? The Nightmare Before Christmas tells the story of Jack Skellington, the King of Halloweentown, who stumbles upon Christmastown and wishes to bring the spirit of Christmas into his own town. This dark comedy is a must watch at Christmas.
