Everyone has that one Christmas movie that they think is the best! Mine is The Grinch but then again, I am a huge Dr Seuss Fan!
Christmas movies are something that we can enjoy as a family and can get us in the Christmas spirit. There are so many memories around certain Christmas movies and I was wondering what everyone’s favourites were and if there was any that we hadn’t seen yet that we could watch in the run up to the big day so I asked the parent blogging community.
This is some of their favourite Christmas movies:
It has to be Elf! We watch it every Christmas Eve without fail – Family Travel With Ellie
Polar Express – just magical! We watch it every Christmas Eve. – Peak District Kids
The Holiday – I love the story and how it connects all the characters in the end, and it’s full of feel good moments! – Emily and Indiana
A bit different ~ but it’s always Gremlins for me! However if you’re watching with younger ones, there is a scene with a Santa spoiler (1 hour, 18 mins into the movie), so make sure you skip that bit! – All She Loves
National lampoons Christmas vacation. Absolutely hilarious – Trinimamabebe
Die Hard! We watch it every Christmas Eve once the kids have gone to bed. – Amy Mighalls
Home Alone. Will never tire of the slapstick comedy! – A Rose Tinted World
We love Daddy’s Home 2, which is a bit of an alternative christmas film but funny and really sweet. – Even Angels Fall
Muppets Christmas Carol. I love the songs and I think it teaches kids an important message in a way they will understand. – Mummy, it’s ok
It’s not Christmas until you’ve watched Love Actually. The ultimate smush fest to make you feel all warm inside. – Twinderelmo
Santa clause – the movie – loved it as a kid as it felt so real and now my kids love it just as me. Really nostalgic 🥰 – Ready Freddie Go
Christmas Chronicles and Home Alone 1&2 😊 – Uplifting and Inspiring Content
Nativity is great fun. It’s not often you get ‘laugh out loud’ moments in a Christmas film but this one does the trick for me. Also the sequels are good too! – My Tunbridge Wells
We have just discovered Jingle Jangle which is a beautiful movie about ‘believing’ in magic and has a lovely Christmas feel with epic costumes, dancing and songs. It was due to go the cinema this year but the pandemic has meant it is straight to Netflix. If you liked the Greatest Showman you’ll like this! Maidenhead Mums
We always watch at least one of the Star Wars movies at Christmas. – Busy Mum Lifestyle
I love mariah careys All I want for Christmas movie, its a family friendly film. Lipgloss And Curves

Muppets Christmas Carol. I’ve watched it on Christmas Eve for as long as I can remember, it’s a tradition! – DonnaDundas

The Holiday & Love Actually for me and Polar Express for the children, although I can’t wait for the new Christmas Chronicals next week!!! Lara Joanna Javis
