There is that time of the year again, when you start thinking about family gatherings, Christmas carols, snow, gifts and Christmas movies, of course. We are thinking each family has its own special Christmas routine involving a certain Christmas carol and film. It is always nice to get cozy near the fire and watch how others celebrate Christmas while all your family is around eating traditional holiday dishes and enjoying their presents.
This is indeed a beautiful image and we are eagerly waiting for December when the pace of everybody seems to slow down, stress is nowhere to be found and the joy of spending time with your loved one is priceless. Christmas cheer and atmosphere are an important part of the celebration, and Christmas movies can’t be excluded from this wonderful picture.
Here are the 5 Christmas movies which are part of our celebration routine during the holidays. These Christmas movies are so impregnated in our popular culture that it seems Christmas is missing something without them.
#1 Home Alone (1990)
This piece will always be in our Christmas movies list. It is almost a tradition to watch this film and enjoy a good laugh with the entire family. We cannot forget the expressive face of Macaulay Culkin and the way an 8 year old boy proves to be smarter than 2 experienced burglars. Dennis the Menace is no match for Kevin McCallister.
#2 White Christmas (1954)
This is a classic, but it will always be part of a Christmas movies list to watch. Back then, the classic red and white image of Santa was born and children began writing letters to the dear old and generous fellow. And as the final line in the movie goes, “… may all your Christmases be white.”
#3 Love Actually (2003)
Here’s a newer film, but still an important piece of our Christmas movies list. This movie is great because it follows the lives of 8 very different couples. Each of the couple has problems in dealing with their love lives during a frantic month before Christmas in London, England. It’s our strong opinion that this movie is all about understanding each other and forgiveness.
#4 How the Grinch Stole the Christmas (2000)
This is also a new entry in our Christmas movies list, but what would Christmas be like without someone trying to steal it? A little adrenaline rush before the Christmas dinner hasn’t hurt anybody. The film is a big budget remake of the classic cartoon about Grinch; we all enjoyed and feared when we were little.
#5 A Christmas Carol (1984)
What would Christmas look like without Ebenezer Scrooge and his Grinch-like attitude? Charles Dickens has truly outdone himself when creating such a character. And of course, the adaptation of the novel will always be on our Christmas movies list.
