Now that Christmas preparations are well underway, we’ve dug out our collection of Christmas movies, and have watched one per night (pretty much) over the past week. Of course, there was a night off in the middle of the week for me to watch Kirsty’s gorgeous, wonderful, magical ‘Homemade Christmas’!!! Look at my collection.....
A random mix of videos, ‘proper’ DVDs, and DVDs that came free with newspapers! We have plenty more Christmas movies that we recorded from the telly onto blank videos too – many moons ago!!! It’s a funny old collection, but I LOVE it! Every December, I really look forward to finding them, dusting them off and re-watching them AGAIN for the umpteenth time.
And I thought I’d share with you my ‘Top 20’ list. Choosing my favourite 20 was pretty easy. But ordering them was quite tricky, as I love them all for different reasons. Some are funny, some I remember watching when I was a little girl, some are extra-christmassy, some are really magical, some are beautiful, and some just make me smile. If there are any on the list that you haven’t seen yet, I really recommend that you give them a try! Also, if you know of any good ones that I haven’t included, please let me know! One can NEVER have too many Christmas movies!!!
So, here’s the list:
1. Home Alone (1990)
2. Elf (2003)
3. The Santa Clause (1994)
4. Surviving Christmas (2004)
