Films to Get You in the Christmassy Mood

Happy Christmas Eve to you all!

If like me you've been working your bum off with university work, or actual work, you might have been some of the unfortunate souls working today!

So you might be finding it a bit hard to get into the Christmas spirit, but fear not! I have some Christmas films which might just get you to join in the festivities...

Elf (2003)

I didn't see Elf until my mid teens, and I absolutely loved it! There's something about Will Ferrel in an elf costume that is hilarious, and many laughs to be had. It's one of those sweet child-like films! Plus Zooey Deschanel sings and is an all round babe.

Gremlins (1984)

Now, Gremlins is an all time childhood favourite of mine! If you haven't seen it you must! It has elements of Christmas, horror and even comedy, depending on how you watch it! Gremlins used to terrify me when I was younger, but now I've grown up a smidge they're not so bad...

Love Actually (2003)

Love Actually, actually is an all time favourite of mine, full stop. Being the first of it's kind to successfully mingle several romantic storylines which all meet up at the end, it's really hard not to love, actually. For me and my mum, we can watch this all year round, it doesn't have to be Christmas to love this film!

Arthur Christmas (2011)

This is probably one of my favourite animated Christmas films, Arthur Christmas stole my heart! I love all of the actors who voice the characters, and it's such a sweet modern take on Santa Claus. I find that once I find an amazing Christmas film I can watch it over and over, and Arthur Christmas delivers that for me! I look forward to seeing it each year.

Nativity (2009)

Now, it might sound bizarre for a bunch of twenty one year olds (nearly twenty two year olds) to love a film about the nativity...but me and my friends love this film! The amalgamation of Mr Poppy and the adorable children is hard not to love! Let alone the really catchy songs! I've found myself often singing along to them maybe when I shouldn't be...

The Holiday (2006)

1. Jude Law. 2. Cameron Diaz. 3. Kate Winslet AND Jack Black? Need I say more? Well if you say so! This is another fave our mine and my mums, again we can watch this all year round. It's such a cute romantic film, and if Jude Law doesn't make you swoon, there might be something wrong with you...Plus the soundtrack is pretty cool, and one of the actors; Eli Wallach spent over 60 years working in Hollywood working with all the greats! (Excuse my fangirling)

The Grinch (2000)

Wow, is this film really sixteen years old?! It feels like only yesterday I was a young Taylor Momsen wannabe singing along to "Where Are You Christmas?" in my pink and purple bedroom! I always have to watch this around Christmas, I absolutely love love love Jim Carrey, he was my favourite comedic actor growing up. Also, from growing up (and I'm sure you've noticed this as well) that I have a lot in common with the Grinch...

I hope you've enjoyed my little Christmas Eve blog post, and the Grinch GIFs!

Let me know what your go to Christmas films are!

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas, whether you celebrate it or not, whether you're going through something which is getting you down. This is a time to spend with your loved ones, stuff your faces silly and hopefully relax in between!

  1. Honestly....the Grinch movie is my all time favourite - even at age 72! Horton Hears a Who is a close runner-up!
