I suddenly had an amazing idea, following my Die Hard recreating the movie last Christmas Eve this year I have managed to get more Christmas films involved. Thanks to my new Grinch Christmas hat, Elf bedding and then the Home Alone and Batman Returns POP figures.
Over the past few years I have found myself buying a new Christmas jumper, mainly for Christmas Day each year and have gone for film related ones in recent times. Although rather disappointing when hardly anyone actually knew that my Golden Girls jumper was in fact the Golden Girls. You can get some outstanding ones now which is why I decided to put together this blog post to highlight just how amazing some of the Christmas jumpers are and they appeal to pretty much every single fandom! Whatever you love the most you are guaranteed to find a jumper for that somewhere!
You can get a lot that are in sweatshirt style but I still personally prefer the proper trashy jumper style and when you add in film they really do have some great levels of detail on them.
We all have our favourite image of Santa Claus from watching films and feel as though that is our Santa! I have decided to pick my favourite seven from the world of the movies! Obviously having to start with this amazing photo of Buddy the Elf who is very excited about this list!
So many to choose from over the years of film and some of the choices I found very easy and others I have tried to be a little bit different in terms of the films I have enjoyed which may just have a slightly different take on the role we all know and love.
A lot of blog posts and talk is currently surrounding Christmas films, so I decided that I would think about what makes a good Christmas film. Especially as it’s not that we get new quality Christmas films every year it always seems to be older now classic films which everyone makes sure they watch at some point in the build up to Christmas. These must have key elements which make everyone love them and want to watch them year in year out. I think that does help make these films extra special, as long as you get the formula right recent times have been more Christmas Turkeys rather than classics.
Every year as it gets close to Christmas time I find myself watching the same films you watch every year, but the good thing about them is that it’s special because you only watch them during a certain few weeks in December. So these seven films will be in no particular order and I will attempt to say what I like about them and why exactly I look forward to watching them at Christmas time.
