Blogmas Day 9 - Five Festive Films


I went through a huge struggle when I was ready to put up a fully decorated Christmas tree into our living room, because we needed to buy a new tree, bigger one this time, plus decorations. We choose to decorate in gold and silver, just because it looks romantic, simple and gorgeous.
Our kids were so excited when we got the tree, the four of us putting the tree up and doing all the decoration.
One of the best things to do to get in the Christmas spirit is to relax with your family, with a nice cup of hot chocolate, some cake, and watch a festive film together! My kids loves it.
I thought it would be a nice idea to share with you some of my favourite Christmas films today! I do already own some of these films on DVD, however I might be popping out to grab some more to watch over the holidays!

 

The Grinch
"In this live-action adaption of the beloved children's tale by Dr. Seuss, the reclusive green Grinch (Jim Carey) decides to ruin Christmas for the cheery citizens of Whoville. Reluctantly joined by his hapless dog, Max, the Grinch comes down from his mountaintop home and sneaks into town to swipe everything holiday-related from the Whos. However, the bitter grump finds a hitch in his plans when he encounters the endearing Cindy Lou Who"

 

Home Alone
"When bratty 8 year old Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) acts out the night before a family trip to Paris, his mother (Catherine O'Hara) makes him sleep in the attic. After the McCallisters mistakenly leave for the airport without Kevin, he awakes to an empty house and assumes his wish to have no family has come true. But his excitement sours when he realizes that two con man (Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern) plan to rob the McCallister residence, and that he alone must protect the family home"

 


Elf
"Buddy (Will Ferrell) was accidentally transported to the North Pole as a toddler and raised to adulthood among Santa's elves. Unable to shake the feeling that he doesn't fit in, the adult Buddy travels to New York, in full of uniform, in search of his real father. As it happens, this is Walter Hobbs (James Coan), a cynical businessman.
After a DNA test proves this, Walter reluctantly attempts to start a relationship with the childlike Buddy with increasingly chaotic results"
 

A Christmas Carol
"Miser Ebenezer Scrooge is awakened on Christmas Eve by spirits who reveal to him his own miserable existence, what opportunities he wasted in his youth, his current cruelties, and the dire fate that awaits him if he does not change his ways. Scrooge is faced with his own story of growing bitterness and meanness, and must decide what his own future will hold: death or redemption"
 

Four Christmases
"Brad and Kate have been together three years, in love, having fun, doing all sorts of things together with no intention of marriage or children. Christmas morning, they're on their trip to Fiji, having told their two sets of divorced parents that they're off to do charity work. Through a fluke, they have no choice but to visit each of their four idiosyncratic parents. As the day progresses, Brand and Kate remember growing up, each learns more about the other, and Kate realizes that her life may not be as good as it could be. Do they know each other well enough to weather the storms families brings?"

Tell me which are your favourites festive films!
