With Christmas just 3 weeks away, it’s a good chance you’re starting into the Christmas spirit and see all the movies being advertised on Sky Christmas or in the recommendations on Netflix. Here are some of my favourite films that I watch around this time to get into the Christmas spirit.
I must stress this before you sit down and watch Bad Santa: this is NOT a movie to watch with the kids. As the poster suggests it’s pretty raunchy and contains a lot of swearing and sexual content. So put the kids to bed, watch this and prepare for a good laugh.
I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love Elf. It’s now a Christmas classic and definitely one for a family viewing. It features Buddy The Elf who was accidentally adopted by Santa and goes to find his real father in New York City. Even at 21 I find it funny and it’s definitely a heart warmer that will entertain everyone who watches it.
The Snowman is a film that I used to watch as a child when it was on VHS. It’s a sweet tale of a young British boy who builds a snowman and it comes to life and they fly together on adventures. It’s also the film in which Aled Jones’ Walking In The Air first became known and a huge hit. Both the film and song have now been immortalised in Christmas history forever.
