And the Christmas Countdown continues. Only 8 sleeps until Christmas Day. I know I sound like a little child with this, but I am actually excited about Christmas every year. I love everything about it. The decorations, the food, the music, getting together with friends and family and just having a great time.
And I love all the Christmas films out there of course and that’s what this post is about: The films that make the excitement about the holidays even bigger. I feel like it’s the ones you can watch every year and don’t ever get tired of.
Great Festive Drama:
(fr. Joyeux Noel)
Miracle on 34th Street
(dt. Das Wunder von Manhatten)
Merry Christmas is such a great film, very well made and such a wonderful story, which just had to be told. I cry every time, not just because it’s sad, but also because it’s beautiful.
Miracle on 34th Street isn’t sad like Merry Christmas is, it’s more a mixture of drama and comedy and so, so cute!
Speaking of comedy, there’s a lot of funny festive films as well.
The best Christmas Family Fun:
(dt. Kevin – Allein zu Haus’)
(dt. Hilfe, es weihnachtet sehr)
I grew up with these two films, watching them nearly every Christmas and I can’t imagine the festive season without them. They’re both so much fun, super silly and christmassy as well. What could you possibly want more?
A bit more romance you say? I give you Romance.
Beautiful Festive Romance:
(dt. Tatsächlich Liebe)
(dt. Liebe braucht keine Ferien)
The best Christmas Romances ever, I’d say. Except for maybe some very old black and white ones like It’s A Wonderful Life. But if you haven’t seen these two, I’ve got no idea where you’ve hidden the past 10 years.
So that’s it. Time to get a plate full of Christmas cookies and some mulled wine, get onto your sofa and put one of these on. Happy Christmas film watching everyone!
