Festive Films to Get You Ready for Christmas*

Ok, I know it’s not December yet, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get excited about Christmas, right? I’m already getting a festive feel when out and about, whether it’s seeing gifts in the shops or the Christmas decorations adorning town centres. With that in mind, I’m thinking it’s acceptable to start off the Christmas blog posts. What better way to do that than with some festive films.

No doubt we all have a list of movies that are a must-watch this time of year. I love cosying up in front of the TV in my pyjamas when it’s cold outside. A mug of tea or hot chocolate wouldn’t go amiss either. Of course, to really set the experience off, you need a good TV such as the 4K LED TV by Panasonic. After all, Christmas is an aesthetically pleasing time of year, from the bright reds and greens, to delicate snowflakes. These should be shown on a great TV to get the most out of your festive film viewing.

My Favourite Festive Films

Soooo let’s take a look at some fabulous Christmas movies (well, in my opinion). I will confess now that I am a bit of a romantic, so these do all fit the romcom description, but I also love the classics such as Elf, The Grinch and Home Alone.

Love Actually

Do I even need to explain to this one? I think it has to be one of the best Christmas films EVER! I can watch it over and over again and not get bored. Each storyline is so strong, and I love how they all intertwine. You have to watch this more than once just to work out all the connections. The perfect excuse for multiple Love Actually viewings. Plus, Hugh Grant dancing will forever be iconic.

The Holiday

If you’re in the mood for a good classic romcom full of charm, then The Holiday is a no brainer. It’s so sweet and the relationships between the characters are adorable.

Bridget Jones’ Diary

It wouldn’t be Christmas without a trip to the world of Bridget Jones, the annual turkey curry buffet, and Mark Darcy and Bridget in extravagant Christmas jumpers. Hilarious and heart-warming, it’s no surprise there are two more films in this franchise, all on the watchlist.

Stuck in Love

You may not have heard of this one, as it’s a smaller independent film, but it is one of my all-time favourites, and if you haven’t seen it, then go and watch it now! It’s more of a Thanksgiving film, than a Christmas one, but there’s ice skating and presents in the film which is good enough for me. Plus I wanted an excuse to mention it. As romantic movies go, it’s not some cheesy chick flick and is a quality film with fantastic performances and a great soundtrack, with many songs now featuring on my Spotify playlist.
