15 x christmas movies to watch during the holidays

Its a Wonderful Life: A real Christmas classic that you must have seen at least once in your life.

The Holiday: You’ve probably seen this movie a hundred times, but it’s just so fun and can not be missed on this list.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas: Maybe secretly our favourite Christmas movie. We used to be afraid of the Grinch, but the older we get, the more we can relate to him ;-)

Love Actually: Who doesn’t know this movie? The ultimate feel good movie, where you just don’t want it to end (and that’s why you just watch it over and over).

Home Alone: For many people the ultimate Christmas movie, and fortunately almost every year on TV with Christmas. In the film, Kevin is forgotten by his parents, he stays behind at home and he has to try to stop the burglars.

Miracle on 34th Street: Both the 1947 and 1994 films are highly recommended. Through this Christmas story you almost start to believe in Santa Claus again ;-)

Elf: In Elf Will Ferrell plays a man who is raised by elves. A hilarious film that can not be missing this Christmas if you ask us ;-)

The Santa Clause: When a man accidentally kills Santa on Christmas Eve, he must magically take his place. A mega entertaining film and another true Christmas classic.

A Christmas Carol: Actually, it doesn’t even matter which movie version you watch, with this classic Christmas story you come into the Christmas mood anyway. Tiny Tim helps with that for sure ;-)

The Polar Express: In this film a boy travels along with a mysterious train. He experiences an unforgettable adventure that will bring you completely into the Christmas spirit.

White Christmas: Another one that you must have seen once. In this film, two artists work together to become one of the most popular acts in show business.

The Family Stone: When a woman meets her in-laws at Christmas, everything goes wrong… A fun movie with lots of awkward situations and family problems, but in the end it gives you a real Christmas feeling.

A Christmas Story: Another classic in which a family must look for the true meaning of Christmas ;-) Perfect to watch with the whole family during the holidays!

National Lampoons Christmas Vacation: This movie is about the Griswold family who experience the most bizarre things during Christmas. A hilarious film that should not be missed this year either.

Bad Santa: Perhaps the best black comic Christmas film out there ;-) A few scammers dress up like Santa Claus and an elf to steal department stores, until they find out the true meaning of Christmas…

Time to crawl under a blanket on the couch with Christmas cookies and hot coco and enjoy these Christmas movies ;-) Have fun!
