Top 7 Christmas movies to watch this season

Nothing helps you more to get into the Christmas spirit than a good Christmas movie. Do not miss our top 7 Christmas movies to watch this season if you’ve liked some of our movie reviews. Maybe you can watch one every day for the last week before Christmas. Maybe you can do a little marathon movies with the little ones on a Friday night. Whatever you want to do, grab some popcorn, a few drinks and a blanket -nothing feels better than being under a blanket- and choose your movie:

#1 Home Alone

home-alone-christmas-movie

This is a Christmas classic! Released in 1990, I was 7 years old when this movie came out but we watched it the other day with our little ones and our 5 year old couldn’t stop laughing with Macaulay Culkin’s interpretation. There are some things that are timeless and even though if that would happen nowadays mummy would just skype the kid and tell him she’ll be back soon, you still have a great time watching it.

#2 Miracle on 34th street

Do you believe in Santa Claus? This is a tender movie that shows how the magic of Christmas brings back the happiness to a broken family through a non-believer 6 year old little girl and a white beard gentleman. One of the favourite movies of my husband to watch during this season.

#3 rise of the guardians

rise-of-the-guardians-christmas-movie

Different to Guardians of the Galaxy, ok. Don’t get confused! I like that one too but today it’s all about Christmas movies. This 2012 animation is a perfect choice to watch with your little ones. It’s entertaining for all ages. It tells the story of how Jack Frost gets his powers back after he suffers from a period of amnesia. A must to watch with all the family. 🙂

#4 ELF

Sometimes it’s hard to keep up with the Christmas spirit all the time. But this Elf shows you how to face the real world and don’t lose a cheerful bubbly personality. This is such a classic that even though it was released more than 10 years ago people still love it and there’s always a meme, a quote or a scene referring to this movie. J’s school are watching it at a movie night next week! 🙂

#5 foster

Maybe you haven’t heard about this movie. We certainly hadn’t before arriving here to UK but on our first Christmas we saw the DVD at a store and we bought it for just 1 pound. We didn’t expect to cry with it and enjoyed it so much. The story of this married couple who lost their son on an accident and then crosses paths with this peculiar little boy will touch your heart. Don’t be misguided for its low price or promotion, it’s a very good Christmas movie.

#6 the nightmare before christmas

If you are into spooky things and Tim Burton then this is your perfect Christmas movie. We watched it last year at home and J spent all the month of the December singing “Halloween Halloween This is Halloween!” hahaha It is a fun movie to watch, maybe if you’ve got very young children might be better to wait until they grow a bit more. 😉

#7 Love actually

love-actually-christmas-movie

Ok, I’m putting this one on the list against my husband’s will because according to him this is not a great movie. It’s a so-so movie. But there is something in this film that I truly love, maybe it’s the simplicity, the love stories or the scenes at the airport where families get reunited, but this movie has for me, a special place in my heart and I enjoy it very much. I am the one who writes this blog, so yep, this is one of my top 7 Christmas movies to watch this season.

What are your favourite Christmas movies? I’m pretty sure you’ve got some good recommendations too! 🙂

    Great list! I love all of these, though haven’t seen Rise of the Guardians yet. ‘Foster’ is called ‘Angel in the House’ in the US. I realised this as it looked familiar, we watched it the other week . It’s a great movie for those looking for a good Christmas film they haven’t seen yet. xx

      Ha that’s interesting. In Spanish they translated it as “foster house” instead of just foster. Beautiful movie 😉 x
