Is there a more wonderful way to build up the spirit of Christmas than by creating Christmas memories cozily watching movies with the family?
We have selected our top five Christmas movies that you and your family can enjoy together snuggled up on the sofa with a hot cup of chocolate, and wearing nothing but your new Christmas pajamas.
5. Elf (2003)
Will Ferrell plays a confused elf that accidentally grows up in the North Pole. In search of his real family, when his height and human features make him feel displaced, he heads to New York City. There he finds his true father, but does he wish him a Merry Christmas, or does Buddy change his mind and turn around walking in a winter wonderland?
4. A Christmas Carol (2009)
A Jim Carrey, Colin Firth, and Gary Oldman alternative to Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. Sticking to the traditional plot, the famous Scrooge is taken in the night on a journey of self-discovery by meaningful apparitions to not only teach him a lesson, but make him a better person too. Hear the classic sounds of sleigh bells jingling and ghostly chains creeping up to the bedroom door.
3. The Nightmare before Christmas (1993)
Written by Tim Burton, a man who has a very contagious creative imagination, Jack Skellington is flabbergasted to discover a Town of Christmas, as the King himself of Halloween Town. You can take the children on a mystical journey from one spooky town to a town of magic and wonder, and let their imaginations jingle all the way through their Christmas Eve sleep.
2. The Grinch: How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000)
An odd creature that despises Christmas and rocks around the Christmas tree to steal from the happy Whos of Whoville has his plans disrupted and his Christmas spirit warmed by a tiny Cindy-Lou. She wants people to see that there is more to Christmas than gifts, and more to the Grinch than a mean Christmas spirit by bringing his unfortunate past to light.
1. The Polar Express (2004)
With the deep cheery voice of Tom Hanks and the white snow following the train ride adventure of a young boy on his way to the North Pole, there is not a film that is more perfect to get the family feeling like the Christmas cheer is coming to town than this one.
