My top Christmas films!

It's just under two weeks before Christmas, and the Christmas film viewings are in full swing at my house. I love a good Christmas film, and I've decided to document my very favourite films! I'm pretty sure I've forgotten a few, so let me know what your favourites are in the comments! In a Christmas tag I did 4 years ago, I named the same top 3, so I've not changed that much clearly! I looked through a lot of lists to see what other people thought, and this BBC list seemed to have the most diversity - I've not heard of a few of these!
Now of course, if I had my way, I'd be watching the films on a super posh tv - like this Panasonic tv  - but alas, I don't think Santa will be THAT kind this year. (Although, Father Christmas, if you're listening, I'd also like a puppy.)

What A Wonderful Life
Oh I love this film so much. It's heartbreaking and heartwarming and just beautiful. I know a lot of people are put off by black and white films, but this film is tireless. I know most of you will have seen this film but if you haven't, I urge you too!

There are not many films I can quote almost word for word, but Elf is one of them. It's just so silly and fun, I love watching this. I'm not a fan of Ferrell but he's bloody good in this film! It's because of this film I have an urge to shout 'SANTA!!! I KNOW HIM!!' whenever I see someone dressed up as Father Christmas, and who hasn't wanted to jump onto a massive Christmas tree a la Buddy the elf?

A Muppet Christmas Carol
There are so many variants of this film, and a lot of them are brilliant, but the Muppet Christmas Carol will always be my favourite. I love the Muppets, the tiny Kermits are adorable and Michael Caine is fantastic. This is a Christmas classic, and I've always loved it.

The Holiday
So this isn't, techinically, a Christmas film. However it features Christmas and therefore it is a Christmas film in my head! I love a good rom-com, and this one is one of the best. I love Kate Winslet very much, which is partly way I enjoy this film so much!

Love, Actually
From Hugh Grant's un-rehearsed dancing to Emma Thompson's heart-breaking realisation set to the dulcet tones of Joni Mitchell, this film is just the best. I watch it every year - often more than once, and I never get bored of it. Plus it has the wonderful Alan Rickman, who I haven't got over, not just yet. This film has a million good points, and it's one of those relaxing, fireplace and mulled wine films.

So, what are your favourite Christmas films?
