Christmas-themed movies have the potential to be family favourites that are revisited year after year, or not-so-great films that tend to focus on the cringe-worthy aspects and clichés of the holiday season. But let’s not talk about the duds — let’s talk about the ones that give you a warm and fuzzy feeling; the ones you actually look forward to watching when the TV stations decide they’re going to screen three Christmas movies each weekend.
Among my favourites are Elf, The Nightmare Before Christmas, The Santa Clause, Love Actually and Home Alone. Yeah, some are kind of on the cheesy side and one takes the gothic animation route, but overall these flicks put a smile on my face come Christmas time. What about you?
