13 Films To Get You Into The Festive Spirit

“The best way to get into the Christmas spirit is singing loud for all to hear!” Am I the only one who doesn’t sing their heart out to all the Christmas films? Probably. I find the best way to get into the festive spirit is by cracking open the box of chocolates, snuggling on the sofa with candles burning and fairy lights sparkling with a good old Christmas film. I thought I would share with you my favourites…


The Holiday

Arthur Christmas


The Grinch

The Polar Express

Home Alone Collection

The Snowman & The Snowman And The Snowdog

Miracle on 34th Street

An Elf’s Story

The Santa Clause Collection


The Muppet Christmas Carol

What are your favourite films to get you in the festive spirit?
