On the 5th day of Blogmas – My True Love Gave To Me
5 Christmas Films!
Here is my countdown of my five favourite Christmas Films to watch over the Christmas Period!
So in true countdown order … We start at number 5.
Grab your popcorn, put on your comfies and snuggle up with your friends and loved ones.
Not all my choices are suitable for a younger audience!
5. Die Hard
Now, this one may be contentious, and I really don’t want to cause an all-out war, but I’m sorry, Die Hard IS a Christmas film!!!
It’s set at Christmas, it has Christmas music featured and it is snowing! So to all the people out there that try to convince me it is an action film, your wrong, it isn’t! 😂😂😂
It’s Christmas, it’s snowing and John McLane a cop from the NYPD has to save his wife and colleagues from the German terrorist Hans Gruber. Played by the late, great Alan Rickman.
It features a lot of action, some fantastic quotes and a lot of laughs.
Yippee ki yay Motherf****r !! 😋
4. Bad Santa 🎅 (Rated 15)
Definitely not one for children. Bad Santa is a full-on naughty Christmas film. However, it’s, funny and cheeky as well.
It features Billy Bob Thornton as a swearing, alcoholic burglar and thief, who poses at Christmas time as the worst Mall Santa ever. His sole intention is to rob the malls that he works in.
3. Love Actually (Rated 15)
If you haven’t seen this film already, have you been living under a rock? It’s an all-star cast, and just a generally great feel-good film. Defo one for the girls though.
This film follows the lives, loves and losses of different sets of couples, families and single people. Lots of all-around laughs and lovely heartwarming Christmas feelings!
2.) The Santa Claus (Rated U)
One for all the family, adults and kids alike. This is an older film out of the ones I have picked and was first released in 1994.
I absolutely love this film.
On Christmas Eve, Scott Calvin, a dad who has joint custody of his young boy, accidentally scares Santa, who consequently falls off his roof! – This then leads Scott to be forced into becoming the new Santa Clause, and all the responsibilities that go with it. Including gaining weight and a beard!
My Late Nan was the one that introduced me to this film, so it will always hold a special place for me. Definitely, a must watch!
And My Favourite EVER Christmas film is ……
****** Drumroll please*******
ELF! – (Rated U)
If you haven’t watched Elf yet, then you are really missing out on a Christmas gem. This film is just pure comedy genius, and is a must watch for everyone in the family!
As a baby in an orphanage, Buddy climbs into Santas sack on Christmas Eve and is taken to the north pole, much to the shock of Santa and the Elves. Buddy lives and is raised as an Elf in the North Pole. However, as an adult, he realises that he is not an Elf and is in fact human! So he goes to New York to meet his father.
I honestly can’t say any more about this film than it is hands down the best Christmas film of all time. It’s heartwarming, and just a pure joy to watch.
So, get ready to pass through the seven levels of the Candy Cane forest, through the sea of swirly twirly gum drops, and then walk through the Lincoln Tunnel!
Don’t be a cotton headed ninny muggins and miss out!
