My Festive Movie Favourites
In my previous post - My Holiday Season Bucket List - I mentioned one of my favourite traditions, my Christmas movie marathon. If you haven't read my last post, my annual Christmas movie marathon is something I love to do alone, and I don't like to be disturbed - it's serious business! I go all out with comfy pyjamas, blankets, I order a takeaway and buy a load of snacks and hot chocolate. It's magic! Since the day is fast approaching, I thought I'd share with you my full festive movie line up and the order in which I watch them in.
MY FESTIVE MOVIE FAVOURITES
How The Grinch Stole Christmas (2000)
Is there a better way to start a Christmas movie marathon? I don't think so. Jim Carrey's perfect portrayal of Mr. Grinch made this version one of my favourite Christmas films of all time.
p.s. I'm super pissed that Netflix removed it before December. Like why? Do you want some logic for Christmas?
A Christmas Carol (1951)
This Alastair Sim adaptation will forever be my favourite version of the Charles Dickens classic, Christmas Eve tale.
Miracle on 34th Street (1994)
I couldn't adore this movie anymore if I tried. It is the epitome of Christmas magic.
"In Christmas magic we trust."
If you know, you know.
Home Alone (1990)
I should probably confess that Home Alone isn't actually one of my favourites; it just lacks the magic factor that I love. But I'm pretty sure it's an unwritten law that you have to watch Home Alone at Christmas, so it always finds it's way on to my marathon list.
Home Alone 2: Lost in New York (1992)
I obviously can't watch one without the other.
Now that I'm an adult, I can't help but think someone should have probably phoned social services on those parents. I mean, how the fuck can you forget your kid twice?
Elf is 100% my favourite Christmas movie of all time! It perfectly captures the magic of Christmas and I can guarantee that this won't be the last time I watch it before 2020.
The Holiday (2006)
This can be labelled as a romantic classic at this point, right?
The Holiday is one of my favourite romantic movies of all time, and it just so happens to incorporate my favourite time of year - that guarantee's it a spot in my Christmas movie marathon every year.
Love Actually (2003)
Love Actually is the best movie to ever come out of Britain and it's one of my favourites for obvious reasons. It's ICONIC, and it always will be.
. . .
And that is the end of my Christmas movie marathon. Head over to my Twitter and tell me what your favourite festive film is!
