I touched on a couple of our favourite Christmas movies in my Christmas tag post but thought I would ask the kids what are there favourites and which ones they are enjoying right now!
Christmas is such a busy time and although we will be out and about at Santa visits and carol concerts we also look forward to snuggling on the sofa and watching some of the kids favourite movies played to perfection on our 4K TV Panasonic.
Evie is loving the An Elf’s Story: The Elf on the Shelf at the moment, having arrived with our elf (Pickles) on December the first Evie has enjoyed watching this movie every night in bed so far!
Nine-year old Taylor McTuttle has reached a crossroads. Does he believe Santa Claus really knows who’s been naughty or nice? Does he even believe in Santa Claus anymore? An Elf’s Story is the inspirational tale of Chippey, the young adventurer elf who has been assigned by Santa to restore Taylor’s belief in Christmas magic. Through the power of love & forgiveness, both of them learn the most important lesson of all: that true belief cannot be taught. A family holiday classic for all generations. An Elf’s Story is filled with fun, music and the timeless message that Christmas is something we carry in our hearts.
Of course another firm favourite is ELF – this is something we have watched countless times and yet it still makes us giggle at the same parts each time! It is such a heartwarming story too!
Will Ferrell stars as Buddy, a human being who has spent his whole life believing himself to be an elf. Brought up by Santa (Edward Asner) and his elves at the North Pole, Buddy has spent the last 30 years happily working in Santa’s toy workshop. But when his ungainly size starts to become a liability in the elf-sized working environment, Santa suggests that Buddy head to New York City to find his biological father (James Caan). Needless to say, the unlikely spectacle of a 6’5′ man dressed from head to foot in bright green stands out a mile on the streets of the Big Apple, and the good-natured Buddy finds himself in all sorts of scrapes as he gets used to his new family and surroundings – and they get used to him.
Mickeys Christmas Carol. A Disney take on an old classic, nothing tells the story of the Christmas past, present and future like this unmistakable Dickens tale!
Everyone knows the tale of Bob Marley and Tiny Tim, about how Scrooge is visited by 3 ghost to try and get him to change his wicked ways! This Disney movie is a beautiful rendition of the often dark and sometimes spooky for little ones story.
Home Alone …..and all the subsequent movies too! I think every kid loves the idea of being left alone at some point but what Kevin gets up to is just hilarious!
When Kevin’s family left for vacation, they forgot one minor detail: Kevin! Eight-year-old Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) has become the man of the house, overnight.
Accidentally left behind when his family rushes off on a Christmas vacation, Kevin gets busy decorating the house for the holidays. But he’s not decking the halls with tinsel and holly. Two bumbling burglars are trying to break in, and Kevin’s rigging a bewildering battery of booby traps to welcome them!
What movies are you watching right now? Are you in full Christmas mode or are you yet to break out the box sets?
