At last – it’s time to start watching Christmas films!
There are now two (at least) dedicated TV channels which show Christmas films (24 hours a day I think), but there’s never a decent one on when you have time to sit down and watch. So, my trusty Christmas DVD collection will get dusted off again, and hopefully I’ll manage to fit in watching one or two in the next three weeks.
In no particular order, because that would be too difficult after the first two or three (I’m not called ‘I used to be indecisive’ for nothing!), here are my ten favourite Christmas films (probably).
1. Holiday Inn
2. White Christmas
3. Miracle on 34th Street (both versions are good, although I think the remake might just edge it over the original for me)
4. Muppet Christmas Carol
5. It’s a Wonderful Life
6. The Snowman
7. Edward Scissorhands
9. Home Alone
10. Love Actually
I also have Polar Express in my collection, and I know lots of people have it on their favourite Christmas films list, but I didn’t like it at all. I can’t really explain why – the story was nice, it was Christmassy, but it just left me unmoved.
What’s your favourite Christmas film?
