Yes, we know. Christmas will be slightly different this year, but some traditions never change. Decorating the house, street lights, the smell of roasted chestnuts… And of course, Christmas films that bring a smile to your face whenever you watch them. Even though we already know all the lines off-by-heart, we always find time to snuggle up on the sofa under a blanket and watch some great festive gems. Here they are!

Love Actually

A great start to the list. A true classic. Love stories intertwined with the daily lives of the characters. Glimpses of Italy, Portugal and, of course, London at Christmas. We’ve all dreamed of living scenes like the one featuring Keira Knightley and Andrew Lincoln with the card messages. Wonderful!

The Nightmare before Christmas

Let’s start the trip down memory lane with this Disney classic that takes us back to a time that marked a major milestone in traditional animation thanks to Tim Burton’s imagination in the technical department.

The Holiday

A romantic film like no other that was a huge hit 14 years ago. How time flies!

Bridget Jones’s Diary

And speaking of the past, there’s nothing quite as satisfying as spending a Christmas afternoon watching Bridget Jones. This romantic classic is now 19 years old, believe it or not!


To make you even more nostalgic, the last item on this list is a Joe Dante classic. Who hasn’t dreamed of having a Gizmo at home?
