HAPPY 1st DECEMBER!
I know what you’re all dying to know. What IS my favourite Christmas film? Well I’m prepared because I’ve compiled a trusty list for you. My bestests. From 1 – 10.
In descending order:
10 – Jack Frost – A heartwarming story of a boy whose dad is reincarnated as a snowman (it always gets me)
9 – A Christmas Carol – in whatever format. I pride myself at having starred in the (second) biggest role in our school production of this play. And yes it was in March that we performed it. As you do
8 – Home Alone – I find it terrifying and exhilarating all at once. For that I thank you, Macaulay Culkin, and the scary burglars
7 – While You Were Sleeping – This film will always remind me of my old housemate and one of my best friends, Cess. We had an epic film-watching session one Christmas afternoon and I will love it every Christmas forever more
6 – Miracle on 34th Street – My childhood. All over (I mean the film – not the glorious apartment in New York or the fact that she wished for a brother and got it)
5 – Love Actually – I know every line inside out. And feel like I have watched it every day. I even tire of it sometimes. But it will never stop being a classic
4 – The Holiday – Oh Kate. You in your tiny cottage. Can I live there too please?
3 – Frozen – Sisters! Disney! A cute reindeer! It’s not necessarily designed for Christmas but it involves snow, family and friends. So OF COURSE it’s making the list
2 – The Family Stone – This is one of my favourite films. I love the family, the bickering, the cosy home, the fact Diane Keaton reminds me of my mum. It’s wonderful.
1 – Elf – You can’t beat it. The funniest Christmas film I’ll ever know. (Apart from the ending – which gets less funny. But I’ll allow it)
Above is a picture of me, my Grandma and my mum a couple of Christmases ago. My Grandma isn’t alive anymore but we’ll be thinking of you in spirit. And of others we miss.
Enjoy this month, friends. Happy 1st.
