We’re really getting into the Christmas spirit now and so we’re circling the Radio Times with our favourite film choices for a nostalgic Christmas. We thought we’d share our favourites here, but we would also love to hear yours! Why do you love it? Why does it remind you of this festive time? Let us know in the comments!
Home Alone – If you were born in the early 80s or before we’re pretty sure this will be a nostalgic film for you! “Keep the change you filthy animals”
Polar Express – A great one for the kids and who doesn’t want to take a magical train ride?
White Christmas – An oldie but the sound of Bing Crosby is synonymous with Christmas, isn’t it?
It’s a Wonderful Life – No Christmas is complete without this beautiful tearjerker if you ask us!
Love Actually – If you remember we suggested a while ago that you put together a ‘Christmas Eve Pamper Box’ for you to enjoy once the kids are in bed the night before Christmas – we don’t think that box could possibly be complete without this festive, romantic film.
The Muppet Christmas Carol – One for the kids, and the big kids, in the family! Everyone in the house looks forward to this fun classic every year.
Elf – It’s impossible not to enjoy this Christmas comedy, perfect for lifting the spirits of any Scrooge!
Scrooge (1951) – Speaking of Scrooge, is Christmas complete without a repeat of this undisputed classic starring Alastair Sim? We think not!
How the Grinch Stole Christmas – One for any 90s babies out there, Jim Carrey lends the perfect energy to this funny, surreal and heart-warming Dr Seuss story!
Miracle on 34th Street – Consider this a two for one because we can’t choose between the 1947 original and the 1994 remake – both are heart-warming, comforting Christmas classics in our eyes!
