My Top Ten Christmas Films // Holidays With Hannah

Just a list of my Top Ten favourite Christmas films, I'm such a big kid and you will see that I love a lot of the family ones.

Eloise At Christmastime

Eloise lives at the Plaza and her adventure at Christmas time is really fun to watch. The main reason I stumbled across this, is because it stars Julie Andrews who I love. Eloise is suspicious of a man named Brooks who was chosen to marry the daughter of the plaza, Rachel. So with some new spy gear she decides to take matters into her own hands.

Mickey's Christmas Carol

A Disney take on the Charles Dickens classic, Mickey's Christmas Carol tells the story of scrooge in a non-scary way whilst keeping the Disney Magic. Featuring some character favourites; the character of scrooge is played by Scrooge McDuck (very fitting) and tells the story of how a man who resented the holidays came to appreciate what Christmas is all about.

The Grinch

In my opinion one of the best Christmas films! Cindy Lou-who has lost her Christmas spirit and thinks that getting The Grinch to join in on the festivities will help her see what Christmas is all about. The Grinch however hates Christmas and decides to try and steal it! An amazing performance by Jim Carrey that you cannot recreate, it's funny, witty and follows the rhymes Dr Seuss wrote.

Nightmare Before Christmas

This is actually a Halloween based film...Jack the Pumpkin King grows tired of the same thing year after year and stumbles across Christmas town. He finds it so unique and decided that Christmas should be his and kidnaps Santa Clause. Jack's friend Sally has a vision that Christmas would be a disaster but Jack doesn't listen and it all goes wrong...

Arthur Christmas

This is a close second to being my favourite Christmas film. It's a very modern take on how Santa pulls off Christmas and how he gets around the world delivering all the presents in one night but, oh no! a child has been missed. Arthur Christmas (Santa's son) decides to deliver the present himself along with Bryony the Wrapping Elf and Grandsanta. 

The Polar Express

Out of all my favourite Christmas films this is probably the sweetest one and has the most magic of Christmas to it. Arthur Christmas is very modern but this film relies on the magic of Christmas. A boy witnesses a train appear in front of his house on Christmas Eve night, it is on its way to the North Pole. After some doubtful thoughts and boarding, a few adventures arise before they finally reach their destinatiom. The boy is still as doubtful before coming face to face with the man himself.

The Muppets Christmas Carol

Another take on the Charles Dickens Classic, The Muppets adds a musical aspect to the movie and it's become a family favourite over the past decade. With Michael Caine as Scrooge it's hard to see anyone else in that part. Having Kermit, Miss Piggy and even Bunsen and Beaker it makes you feel so nostalgic.

The Christmas List

This is a TV film that I watched one year and loved. Melody, a perfume sales woman who knows every scent, is a single woman in her mid 30's and isn't living life the way she wants. Convinced by a friend to write a letter to Santa asking for all the things she'd dreamed of starts to come true. Along the way she doubts the five year plan her current boyfriend has set up and falls in love with a handsome psychiatrist. 

Home By Christmas

Another film that was on Channel 5 one year and is an absolute Christmas gem. Julia Bedford finds out that her husband is cheating on her. After a harsh divorce where the ex hides most of his assets she is left living paycheck to paycheck and her daughter, who cannot cope with the sudden change of school..etc decided to live with her father and his new girlfriend. Julia is then robbed, losing/ getting everything stolen and is forced to live out her car. She meets some amazing people on the way to getting back on her feet and discovers what is really valuable in life.

Love Actually

This film features 10 stories in one to which they all interlude and concluded together a month after Christmas. But as they all begin leading up in the weeks to Christmas it's so hard not to fall in love with all the characters and stories, this film could easily of been 10 but they pieced it together so well with a school play being the centre of the majority of the crossovers. It's become a go to film to watch each year. 

As always, thanks for reading...
