I have always loved watching movies in different genres and different languages. I enjoy watching movies from genres like romantic comedies, classics, action, sci-fi, horror among others. As a child, I used to enjoy watching Christmas themed movies with my family. Nowadays, it has almost become a tradition of sorts when my son and I watch at least a few Christmas movies during the festive season after his school closes for the winter break (which begins, by the way, at the end of this week….Yaaayyy! :D)
So for this week, I decided to put together a list of our Top 10 Christmas movies of all times. (Note: this list is not based on statistics or any rating by movie websites, it is purely based on the favorites picked from this mom and her son’s collections!)
Without further ado, here is our list of Top 10 Favorite Christmas movies of all times in random order.
- Home Alone 1 & 2
This movie is about an 8-year old troublemaker who must protect his home from a pair of burglars. My son is a bigger fan of these movies than I ever was. Can’t blame him, can we?
Elf is the story of Buddy who is transported to New York from the North Pole. The movie is about spreading the Christmas cheer.
- Miracle on 34th Street
This classic needs no introduction. It was released in the year 1947 and is based on a story by Valentine Davies.
- The Polar Express
The Polar Express is a 2004 American computer animated musical fantasy film based on the children’s book of the same title by Chris Van Allsburg.
- It’s a Wonderful Life
Yet another classic definitely worth your time. This movie is about how a frustrated business man wishes he were never born and an Angel appears to show him what life would have been had he never existed!
- The Holiday
Two women troubled with guy-problems swap homes in each other’s countries, where they each meet a local guy and fall in love….need I say more?
- Love Actually
8 love stories in one movie – what more does a girl want? Love Actually is your movie if you are also a hopeless romantic like me!
- Unaccompanied Minors
This one is on the list because of my son. He loves movies where children are the main or only characters. This movie totally belongs to the minors! 😀
- Arthur Christmas
Imagine being Santa’s son and then being sent on a mission all the way from North Pole. Well that’s what this movie is about!
- Mickey’s Christmas Carol
For the longest time, I remember this was my favorite Christmas movie and now it continues to be a favorite in my little boy’s list!
I hope you enjoyed our list of Christmas movies. Do you have any favorites that you watch only during the holidays? Let me know!
