This time, we'll help you go back down memory lane to when you were younger and would go on a Christmas movie marathon. Read on for a great list of 5 Christmas movies to keep your Christmas spirit up!
Surely you're familiar with the world-wide known Christmas flick, Home Alone. It's played over and over every Christmas, but somehow you just can't seem to brush it off. There's definitely something about the movie that just makes you feel all warm and cozy... almost as if it makes you feel at "home". You know that feeling? Perhaps you're at your grandma's house or on a trip somewhere far from home. As soon as you put the movie on, you feel as though you're safe and secure, and that you are home. If you're wondering why, it's mostly because this movie reminds us of our childhood days, back when life was oh-so-simple. This is perfect for you escapists who aren't really at home for Christmas, but would love that feeling.
If you're into tear-jerking movies that you could watch while you curl up in a ball with a box of tissue by your side, then The Family Stone is the perfect movie for you. Without having to spill any spoilers to you, let's just say that the movie is definitely not for the weak-hearted (or is it?). In a nutshell, the movie centers around an eccentric family of unique shenanigans and issues.
For a light comedy movie with calming Christmas vibe, Just Friends is a great movie to enjoy before or even on the day of Christmas. While the story is more inclined towards friendship, the movie eventually takes you to an "accidentally" romantic tale of how two long-lost best friends discovered so much more things in common after their time apart. Far from a tear-jerker, this movie is perfect if you'd like a more chill movie to relax to without having to think or analyze.
If you're in the mood for a romantic film, have a go at the popular movie, Love Actually, starring many popular Hollywood stars. The movie spans over the lives of eight different couples prior to Christmas, in which all of their stories differ from another. As you would expect, there are the happy stories and then there are the more sombre and blue tales which makes the whole movie seem like an emotional roller coaster ride. To not get you too confused, their lives are "loosely" intertwined with each other as pieces of a big picture. So, get your snuggie and sweet treats ready for the show, and perhaps even a nice glass of wine.
This is perhaps more suitable for the younger generation, but if you're of the older spectrum and in the mood for some fantasy movie, you should definitely re-watch a Harry Potter movie, or simply just give it a try and see what the hype back in the day was about. It may just be a movie about wizards and witchraft, but you'll get addicted to the life of Harry Potter and his adventures throughout.
