In my family on Christmas day, after we’ve eaten, we all slowly make our way into the living room and put on a DVD to watch or fall asleep to. It’s usually a film one of us has received for Christmas but not always. Here are a few of my favourite films to watch over the Christmas season.
Nativity! If you know me at all you’ll know this is my all time favourite Christmas film. It has been since my best friend Hannah and I went to see it in the cinema way back in 2009. I probably know all the words to it and I’m not even ashamed of that.
Chicken Run I don’t actually think this is a Christmas film but in my mind it is. I think that’s because it’s always on BBC on Christmas morning but who knows. You can’t beat a bit of Aardman claymation on Christmas.
Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer This is another favourite of mine, it’s a classic. I remember watching it with my brother and sister when we were younger and it’s a favourite of my friend Mandy as well.
Arthur Christmas I think this only came out last year but it was a favourite with my whole family. We all loved it. I definitely think it’ll be a new classic like Elf or A Christmas Carol.
How The Grinch Stole Christmas I’m not the biggest fan of Jim Carrey but I do love this film. It’s strange seeing a very young Taylor Momsen and Christine Baranski dressed as Whos but I love it.
The Gavin and Stacey Christmas Special I know this isn’t actually a film but along with the Dr Who Christmas Specials and all the other ones that are on around Christmas it’s something I just love to watch. It’s in Netfix at the moment and I’ve already watched it a fair few times. I’m really tempted to buy it and download it to my iPad. Part of me is still gutted really sad that Gavin and Stacey ended so soon.
I realised while I was writing this that almost all of these remind me of my friend Hannah, I’m so sad I had to miss our annual Christmas film day this year.
