The Top 15 Festive Films of all Time


Welcome to my first festive post of the year! I'm honestly so excited by all the christmas adverts on TV and the Christmas lights popping up here there and everywhere! There is nothing I love more this time of year than a festive film night. Cosying (is that even a word!?) up in a pair of christmas PJ's, getting my hot choc game ON and the fire burning, whilst sticking on a movie marathon of my fave films; its honestly so relaxing and fills my heart with Christmas joy!


Today I wanted to share my top Christmas films. I think these should be on everyone's radar this christmas and I'd love to know if you've watched any of them or what your go to Christmas Classics are. This post is kindly sponsored by Panasonic and you can check out the Ultra HD 4K TV Panasonic here it. As someone who has been a user of Panasonic for years I was more than happy to work in collaboration with them their TV's are high definition with sleek designs and beautifully bright colourful displays; I'd definitely recommend them if you are in need of a Christmas Gift or a TV for your own festive film night!



 MY CHRISTMAS MOVIE TOP 15
So here are my top 15 Christmas Films, and a short synopsis of why I personally LOVE them.

  1. The Holiday-By far my favorite film on the planet and a Christmas gem-with THE BEST film sound track on the planet. Delve into the Surrey countryside at Christmas, whilst journeying through the perils of love, and ending up at the most important gift of all...family. It may be predictable and a little cliche but who can't fall in love with Jude law as Mr napkin head, and Kate Winslet helping out an elderly gentleman at Christmas.                                                         
  2. Love Actually -This is a Christmas Classic, and if you haven't seen it where have you been? This film is both charming and hilarious, following the intertwined lives of a group of people just trying to get life right as it gets closer to christmas. Its a mix of everything touching on love, family, youth romance and some interesting nativity outfits...                                                                        
  3. Elf -Isn't Will Ferrell such a legend. He's hilarious, and so is Elf. It tells the tale of a boy brought up by elves, before discovering he doesn't really belong. We then follow his quest to finding his father and the task of fitting into the 'Real World'                                                                                     
  4. Nativity-Possibly the most heartwarming family film out there. Is there anything cuter than a group of kids putting on a nativity, striving to be the next best thing in hollywood, helped out by the ever enthusiastic Mr Poppy and a warm hearted but slightly less enthusiastic Mr Maddens.                                                                                                                                           
  5. Arthur Christmas-When a child is missed its down to little Arthur christmas to get ALL the presents delivered by christmas. Its magical, light hearted, and depicts perfectly the essence of christmas spirit.
  6. Bridget Jones-Possibly the most relatable character out there. I love Bridget Jones all year round but the christmas setting make it the perfect christmas film and I will always have it down as one of my festive faves-I need my Mark Darcy at Christmas.                                                 
  7. Miracle on 34th Street-The magic of christmas is brought to life in this film and puts any cynic in their place, as Santa is helped out by a lawyer and a little girl who go out of their way to prove that santa is real!                                                                                                                                     
  8. A Disney Movie-What's christmas without the magic of Disney!? I've put 101 Dalmatians in the pics above but I can watch any Disney film with a box of chocolates at christmas...they are the perfect family choice!                                                                                                               
  9. The Harry Potter Series- I personally love a pit of HP at christmas, especially the first two films as they are so magical. I feel like everyone needs a piece of Hogwarts; Harry, Ron and Hermione at Christmas.                                                                                                                 
  10. A Christmas Carol-There are so many different variants of this film and I think they are all great. Muppets christmas Carol is perfect for younger children, with narratives from the Muppets and catchy tunes to help tell the dickens classic. I personally enjoy the animated version.
  11. The Grinch -A Jim Carey Classic, this is a love it or hate it film that takes the watcher to whoville where little Cindy loo has to work a bit of christmas magic and cheer to warm the heart of the Grinch who’s heart is hardened to christmas after a bad experience as a child.             
  12. Home Alone - This is such a classic and never fails to make me laugh. An 8 year old is left home alone thinking his christmas wish has come true, until two burglars force him to come up with some creative ways of preventing the house from burglary!!                                                                                                                                            
  13. The Polar Express-I love this film, its another we always watch as a family at christmas and it's just adorable.                                                                                                                                    
  14. New Years Eve-Another of those films with a star studded cast. This one again follows couple's lives through new year's eve leading up to the big reveal of the NEW YEAR. Its also easy to watch and one you can stick on with the girls a festive drink and a few nibbles.                       
  15. Serendipity -Mum and I stay up late each year and watch this film. Its an easy watch and again maybe cliched but it's just so enjoyable and who doesn't wish for a bit of serendipity in their lives-especially at christmas
Whats your favorite film to watch over christmas- comment below and let me know!

  13. Girl first of all, I’m LOVING that you’ve posted a festive post already and I’m so excited for more. Your photos are so cute and cosy! I love so many of these films and I’m so glad you included Disney films because for me, Disney is a big part of Christmas. It just makes it all so much more magical x

It's a great collection of movies and if I could I probably would watch them all year round haha I never actually watched Elf so I will have to make up for it and watch it this year.
