My Favorite Christmas Movies

It is December 1, I am decorating my home and blasting the Christmas tunes so I thought it was the perfect time to give you my list of my favorite Christmas movies. I watch them every year to get me into Christmas mode. Christmas is definitely my favorite time of the year. Like I said I always watch the same movies years after years so please give me some suggestions of movies that you love in the comments below.





Love Actually

Synopsis: Follows the lives of eight very different couples in dealing with their love lives in various loosely interrelated tales all set during a frantic month before Christmas in London, England.

Starring: Bill Nighy, Hugh Grant, Liam Neeson, Emma Thompson

Directed By: Richard Curtis

I love movies with interrelated stories and this one might be cheesy but I always enjoy watching it. And secretly dreaming I will also find love around Christmas time.


Home Alone

Synopsis: An eight-year-old troublemaker must protect his house from a pair of burglars when he is accidentally left home alone by his family during Christmas vacation.

Starring: Macaulay Culkin, Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern, Catherine O'Hara

Directed By: Chris Columbus

The Christmas classic. I watched it so much when I was a kid. It is still one of my favorite movie to watch during this time of the year.


The holiday

Synopsis: Two women troubled with guy-problems swap homes in each other's countries, where they each meet a local guy and fall in love.

Starring: Cameron Diaz, Jude Law, Kate Winslet, Jack Black

Directed By: Nancy Meyers

Again it brings me hope to find love at Christmas. I especially love the snowy setting in England, very Christmasy. And… Jude Law.


The nightmare before christmas

Synopsis: Jack Skellington, king of Halloween Town, discovers Christmas Town, but his attempts to bring Christmas to his home causes confusion.

Starring: Chris Sarandon, Catherine O'Hara, Glenn Shadix, Danny Elfman

Directed By: Henry Selick, Tim Burton

Both a Halloween and Christmas movie, this stop-motion is creepy yet heartwarming, something only Tim Burton can do. Always a good choice.
