My Favourite Christmas Movies

 I love a good Christmas Movie. As a mom, I don't get a lot of time to watch movies. I plan to use what little time I have to watch a few of my favourite movies this Christmas.

1. Miracle on 34th Street - Easily my favourite Christmas movie of all time, Miracle on 34th Street is a movie I watch every year. I don't feel like it's Christmas until I have watched it. This film has everything - romance, emotion and humour. You name it, it has got it!

It tells the story of Kris Kringle who is the grotto Santa at Cole's Department Store. He believes he is the real Santa and as his popularity soars so do the stores profits. An attempt to discredit him leaves him in court trying to prove he is the real thing. 

2. The Snowman - I imagine that this movie is a favourite amongst most people. I love a good animated movie and am going to watch it with Jack this year. That's if he sits still long for long enough! 

3.  The Holiday - This is set during the holiday period so I am counting it as a Christmas movie. This is a romantic comedy with a star studded cast including Kate Winslet, Cameron Diaz, Jude Law and Jack Black. 

It tells the story of Iris and Amanda who swap homes during the holiday season to escape heartbreak. What follows is romance as they both meet new people whilst abroad.

4. Love Actually - This is such a super cheesy movie but it makes me feel so cheery so I had to include it. It starts five weeks before Christmas and counts down until the day itself. It follows various people during the holiday season. I love the story of Prime Minister David (Hugh Grant) and House Assistant Natalie (Martine McCutcheon.) My favourite moment is Juliet and Peter's wedding and the "All you need is love" aisle moment. Talking about this movie is making me want to watch it right now!

5. Home Alone - I love all of the Home Alone movies but the first one for me is unbeatable. Eight year old Kevin is left home alone after his family mistakenly leave for the holiday season without him. Two con-men try and rob the family home and only Kevin can stop them. I have watched it so many times but I still find it as funny as the first time I watched it.
