My top 5 Christmas films that I need to watch

When it comes to Christmas films, I’m disappointed to say that there are not many that I have watched. Love Actually and The Holiday are only two of a very small number of Christmas films that I have watched over the years and so this year I am going to challenge myself to finally watch some of the ones everyone talks about! Here are my top five.

Home Alone

Now I have watched a bit of Home Alone, but I have no idea which one it was so it’s probably a good thing to re-watch! I remember really enjoying what I did watch and it’s a film that people talk about every year so it’s definitely time I watch it all the way through!


I have never seen any of Elf but I’ve heard so many good things. It looks like a really fun film and probably something I’m not used to watching so I’m intrigued by how I find it. It’s got good reviews and comes across as though it’s a modern classic so I have high hopes!

The Christmas Chronicles

With this being a very recent Christmas film, it has definitely been on my radar yet I have not seen it. I believe there is a sequel being released this year as well so I think I might watch this one first.

Arthur Christmas

Like with Home Alone, I have seen a bit of this, but I haven’t watched the whole thing and can’t really tell you what I saw – something to do with Santa and presents? In all fairness that could be most Christmas films! The visuals of this film look really good and from what I do remember, it had a great vibe to it.

Last Christmas

I really wanted to see this film when it was released at the cinema last year but I never got round to it. I’ve read bits and pieces about what the storyline is and I think it’s definitely worth a watch, even if it’s just for the soundtrack!

Are there any Christmas films you have never got round to watching? Let me know in the comments below.

  1. I highly recommend Elf! It’s so sweet. I am a person so in love with Christmas movies that I want to marry them. So when Hallmark and Lifetime begin showing Christmas movies in October, that is when my holiday season officially begins. 🙂

  2. These are actually all my favourites! We watched Christmas Chronicles at the weekend ready for the next one to land. I forgot how much I loved it.

    Last Christmas is brilliant, enjoy x x

  3. Hi Sarah. Well, my wife would tell you that you MUST watch “It’s a Wonderful Life” – she says it is a classic. I, on the other hand, think that Die Hard is the best Christmas movie and that it is a classic 🙂
    By the way, Elf is the Marmite of Christmas movies – typically you love it or hate it!

  4. Home Alone is absolutely my family’s favorite for lifetime! I haven’t watch the rest, I’ll add it to my list. Thank you for the recommendation x

  5. I’ve seen Elf too many times to count, to the point where It’s not even an option to watch anymore because I’m bored of it lol, but Aurthur Christmas is such a lovely film you should deffo watch it!!

  6. Home Alone is a classic & I watched Elf the other day with my boyfriend because he has never seen it too! It is a good movie!
    I haven’t seen Arthur Christmas, but it looks cute & I wanted to see Last Christmas too because I love Emilia Clarke!

  7. Home Alone and Elf are a must in our house! This Christmas though I want to try and watch some of the ones I never watched. I will add for sure Arthur Christmas to my list! Thanks for sharing xx
