I already talked about my favourite book settings & places I’d like to visit in the past, so I decided to do something more Chistmas-y. Here are the movies I love to watch over Christmas time!
It’s Mr. DZ’s favourite Christmas movie and we have to watch it every year. I watched it for the first time 5 years ago and thought I wouldn’t like it. But I enjoyed it & thought it was funny^^ We tried Bad Santa 2 as well, but both didn’t like it. It was a weak copy of the first – the problem so many second parts have.
I am SO in love with this movie! The airport scene always makes me cry and Bill Nighy always makes me laugh! Such a great concept with all those tiny stories that are connected in some ways. And not all of them have a happy ending. I feel like watching it every year during Christmas Time!
My parents loved this movie so we watched it every year. I used to be a bit scared of all those ghosts when I was little but I always loved the movie as well. And it always makes me cry in the end!
National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
If I had to pick my favourite Christmas comedy, this would be it! Never got tired of it, it was tradition to watch it at Christmas! I even watched it twice sometimes – once with my family and then again with my friends from high-school. Fun fun fun!
Another classic! Christmas-y, funny, heart-warming, lots of action. It is perfect! But I never liked the sequel. Or sequels? I don’t even remember whether there is more than 1!
Jingle All the Way
Eh! I actually haven’t seen this one in years but I remember that my brother and I loved it and watched it several times as well. I might not like it so much anymore if I’d try it nowadays. But it still gives me nice Christmas memories when I look back!
Of course it is a Christmas movie! And it has Alan Rickman ❤
Drei Haselnuesse fuer Aschenbroedel
If you are German, you will know that this will run on every channel, non-stop until Christmas 😀 It’s a Czech/East-German adaptation of the story of Cinderella from 1973 and it’s so cheesy and pretty & magical and has the BEST music. Also, the costumes are very classy. We love it!
Rise of the Guardians
This is one of my favourite animated movies and it should be much more popular. It features Santa Claus, The Sandman, The Tooth Fairy, Jack Frost and Hugh Jackman voices the Easter bunny!! Very cute & funny and touching! Watch it 😀
‘Sissi!’ – ‘Franz!’
And again.. if you are German you CAN’T get around this movie trilogy. It is an Austrian production from 1955 featuring the wonderful Romy Schneider. She plays the role of Empress Elisabeth of Austria and shows her growing up and becoming a strong leader of her country.
It is so super cheesy and dramatic and just GORGEOUS! I watched it with my mom every year. My dad and brother hated it 😀
