Three films to watch every Christmas

Most people have Christmas traditions. Whether it is putting up and taking down Christmas decorations on a certain day, everyone going to a place on the big day or sitting down and watching certain Christmas films with the family whilst eating a box of chocolates and drinking hot chocolate.

I do the latter. You cannot beat a good Christmas film marathon so I have came up with three of my favourites and given you a little review of them! Most likely you have seen them but if you haven't, where have you been?!?!?!?!?!

So here is 'Blogmas| Three films to watch every Christmas'...

A bit about the plot:
Buddy was raised in the North Pole by Santa's elves as a little baby to being a fully grown adult. He would help out in the workshop but couldn't hide the feeling of misplacement, he just didn't fit in. Buddy, in head to toe elf suit, travels to New York in search of his real biological father, which happens to be businessman Walter Hobbs (James Caan). Along the way he meets a love interest (Zooey Deschanel), Hobbs family and other joyful (and not so joyful) people.
I love this film for two things. One being the fact that it is really funny and will definitely get you in the festive spirit of Christmas. The other because the cast is fab. I'm not going to lie, I am not a big fan of Will Ferrell (who plays the main character) in the sense that sometimes I don't find him funny when he has to be or something like that. However him in this film is just hilarious. He suits the character Buddy to a T. His gestures, face expressions, his movements, they are just spot on. Zooey Dechannel, who plays Buddy's love interest, is so cute in this. I love her as an actress so she was fantastic as this and when she sings it is just lovely.
Definitely one for the family!

A bit about the plot:
Inside a snowflake exists the snowy land of Whoville. The Who live there and the love Christmas. But just outside of their beloved Whoville town lives the Grinch. The green is a nasty creature that hates the festive period, and plots to steal it away from the Whos which he equally dislikes. However a small Who, Cindy Lou Who, decides to try befriend the Grinch.
But will she be able to stop The Grinch from stealing Christmas? 
I absolutely love love love love love this film.
My friend is absolutely scared stiff of the Grinch but I just find him so adorable and I relate to him so much! This is the film adaption of Dr Suess' classic book is just perfect for them late nights, snuggled up with your loved ones and watch a fab Christmas film.

A bit about the plot:
When a boy (Culkin) wakes up and finds his family have gone on holiday without him, he thinks this is perfect being home alone for the wintery season. Little does he know he will have to defend his home from two burglars (Pesci and Stern), he uses his child genius brain and comes up with a plan... But does it work?
As a family favourite film, the main character, Kevin, is spot on. His face expression, the way he talks and his movements are just spot on especially in the scene with the two burglars. The scenes with Kevin and the two burglars are so funny and with the evil chemistry with Kevin's cheekiness is just fab to watch.
Set in the Winnetka, Illinois, the outside scenes are so pretty, with the snow and the Christmas decorations out in force on the houses/streets. It is literally my dream place to go and live for the Christmas period.
No wonder it had a sequel, which isn't as good but still funny to watch!
Well there you have it, three festive films to make you feel good this Christmas time!
Until tomorrow!
