Save yourself the TV-scrolling hassle with Firebox’s guide to the best Christmas movies
Whether you’re a Grinch or a Die Hard Christmas fan, if you’re Home Alone or Love Actually spending time with your loved ones (see what we did there?), there’s a Christmas movie to match anyone’s mood. To help you sort the wheat from the chaff, here is Firebox’s guide to the best Christmas movies that fall into three different categories.
It’s not Christmas without a good Christmas film, amarite?
The best thing about winter weather is not having to be in it, preferably watching it from the toasty comfort of your warm house instead. When the Christmas holidays come around you don’t even have to worry about the cold commute or what you’re going to get from Pret for lunch, you can simply snuggle under a blanket and binge on all the comfort food you had planned to save for Christmas Day that you’re now going to have to re-order because you have no self-discipline.
Now that you’ve got all your Christmas presents bought, a full belly and warm toes, it’s time to finally chill out with some snuggle-worthy entertainment. So, what’s your Christmas movie mood?
Classic Christmas Movies
Perhaps it’s because it only comes round once a year, but there’s something about the tradition of Christmas that makes a classic, feel-good film irresistible. Here are our top three.
Family Christmas Movies
All year round you overpay a therapist to regress back to your childhood, but at Christmas you can do it for free! Forget those adult responsibilities and allow yourself to believe in magic for a minute.
Not Very Christmassy Christmas Movies
Not everyone loves Christmas, especially if you are forced to spend the day with people you actively avoid for the other 364 days of the year. If you’d rather have Christmas without the cheese, then these movies are for you.
Shop For The Unusual This Christmas
Before you switch off your brain and relax in front of the TV, make sure you’ve got all your Christmas shopping done! Your great aunt did not appreciate that cobweb-covered bottle of lumpy Baileys you found at the back of a cupboard last year.
