Nothing gets you into the festive mood more than a couple of feel good christmas movies. Here’s 5 of my favourites

Home Alone

I only watched this for the first time a few years ago – I’ve missed out on a classic for so long. I love how clever Kevin is especially when he plays the movie Angels With Filthy Souls in just the right parts to confuse the bad guys. The booby traps he comes up with near the end are hilarious!

Elf

There’s not many Christmas movies that can beat the childlike innocence of Elf. After Buddy ends up being transported to the North Pole in Santa’s sack he grows up amongst the elves. Buddy knows he doesn’t really fit in there and heads to New York to find his real father. The film really makes you believe in the strength of the Christmas spirit and what you can achieve if you believe. A great mix of humour with a few teary moments. If you haven’t seen it make sure you watch it when they’ll undoubtedly show it this Christmas!

my top 5 christmas movies a christmas carol

A Christmas Carol

Based on the famous Charles Dickens novel, a Christmas Carol tells the story of Ebenezer Scrooge a bitter middle aged man who hates everything Christmas represents. That is till the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future come to visit. I’ve seen so many different versions of this from the original (which is a classic and must see) to the Ross Kemp version (surprisingly good!). No matter how many times I see it the story can still pack a punch.
