Last year, I shared a list of my favourite Christmas movies that aren't actually Christmas movies so I thought that this year I'd share my list of favourite Christmas movies that are actually Christmas movies!
Home Alone & Home Alone 2
I was five when Home Alone released and I think I've watched it every year pretty much since then.
I love its brand of festive madness!
And now I get to watch them both my own son and they still haven't got old for me.
How The Grinch Stole Christmas
I love the book and I genuinely enjoyed Jim Carey as the Grinch. I know many people hated this adaptation but I'm not one of them. It rocks, and Faith Hill's song for the soundtrack is absolutely beautiful!
This released the year I met the Professor. We went to the movies to watch it together. It'll always be special to me for that alone but it's such a heart-warming movie, I'd have loved it anyway.
I only watched this one for the first time last year (I know! Shock and horror!) and I must admit that I loved it. It was silly, it was sweet, and it made me laugh while revving me up for the season.
This is another movie I only watched for the first time last year but loved!
A novel take on Christmas that's perfect for all the family.
A Nightmare Before Christmas
This could also have been on my Halloween movies list as it totally works as both but I put it more in the Christmas shenanigans bucket than Halloween...
Quirky and weird and perfectly Tim Burton, it's a huge hit in this house!
We even have two Nightmare Before Christmas baubles on our Christmas tree...
A Miracle on 34th Street
My grandmother loved this one and I loved watching it with her every single Christmas. She's been gone for ten years now but I'll forever associate this movie with her and continue to watch it.
The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe
I'm torn over this one... I mean, to me it is undeniably festive and definitely a Christmas movie but I'm aware that other people may not feel so. Never-the-less, it's going on my Christmas list!
I usually watch this on Christmas eve. It's a tradition.
What are your favourite Christmas movies?!
