Top 5 Tuesdays | Christmas Movies | prettylittlewriter

With all my Christmas gifts wrapped and ready to go, this Festive season really is in full force for me. 
So for this week's top 5 Tuesdays, I thought I'd share with you my all time favourite Christmas movies!

1. How The Grinch Stole Christmas.

This film revolves around a grumpy old Grinch who lives up in the Mountains of Whoville, intent on destroying Christmas for the residents of Whoville.
This is my favourite Christmas film as it is suitable for all the family, with certain references only adults will understand yet won't affect children, and Jim Carrey as one of his funniest characters to date.

2. It's A Wonderful Life.

An old classic, filled with love and tender moments, this story is all about an angel who helps a compassionate but despairingly frustrated businessman by showing him what life would be like if he had never existed. 
An amazing movie to watch with your loved ones, it really envelops the spirit of Christmas. 

3. Home Alone.

A must have movie to watch every single year, this movie revolves around little Kevin McAllister who is left home alone when the rest of his family go on holiday for Christmas. He then encounters some dangerous thieves who are intent on robbing the house, but little do they know that they messed with the wrong kid!

4. Elf.

A feel good movie all about the boy Santa took in as an elf who grows up and wants to meet his real Father. Buddy goes to New York to find his Father, only to find out that not everyone believes in the spirit of Christmas.
One of Will Ferrell's best character performances, Elf is a must watch movie every Christmas!

5. Blackadder's Christmas Carol.

Technically not a movie, but a special Christmas episode of Blackadder, this episode see's Blackadder in the Dickensian Era as Ebenezer Scrooge. A twist on the classic A Christmas Carol, as Blackadder begins as a pleasant human, but after having visits from his ancestors and descendants turns into his original cruel and witty self.

What are your favourite Christmas movies? :)
