The Top 5 Christmas Films Ever Made


I hadn't actually planned on writing a post on Christmas films this Blogmas but that all changed when I watched an absolutely CRACKING one yesterday. There I was scrolling through Netflix looking for my usual fave, Arthur Christmas (Netflix why have you removed it?!) when I stumbled across 'Get Santa'. I'd never heard of it and had no idea what to expect but lemme tell you, it's 100% one of my new favourites! So much so, I figured I ought to share my find with the internet as it really is fantastic and is a must-watch on these last few days before Christmas!

A round up of the top 5 Christmas films ever made

001. Get Santa

"After crashing his sleigh and coming to the attention of the local police, Santa Claus asks a father and son for help to round up his reindeer so he can return home and ensure that Christmas is not ruined for all."

I really can't sing this films' praises enough. It's set in London, has a great cast and I loved the storyline. It also features some great Christmas songs and isn't cheesy at all, 10/10.

002. ELF

"Buddy, a human, is raised amongst elves at the North Pole. When he discovers that he is not an elf, he travels to New York to search for his biological father."

A film that needs no introduction. It's an absolute Christmas classic and I always make sure to watch it at least once every festive season which, considering I'm not a massive film person, is high praise indeed!

003. Love Actually

"Eight London couples try to deal with their relationships in different ways. Their tryst with love makes them discover how complicated relationships can be."

A Christmas film I could watch over and over again. That necklace scene? Iconic. Hugh Grant? Fantastic. Natalie? An utter babe.

004. The Holiday

"Two girls from different countries swap homes for the holidays to get away from their relationship issues. However, their lives change unexpectedly when they meet and fall in love with two local guys."

Plot twist, this isn't actually a Christmas film according to Google but imma include it anyway. It's another of the classics and again, I'm not sure I need to say too much more about it. 

005. Arthur Christmas

"When Santa's gawky son Arthur learns that owing to a technical glitch a little girl's Christmas gift has been misplaced, he sets out on a mission to deliver the present before it is too late."

By far the cutest Christmas film everrrrr. I love the animation, the story and all of the characters. It's a real feel-good Christmas film and it engrosses me every time I watch it despite having seen it more times than I care to admit!
