Favourite Holiday Movies

Favourite Holiday Movies -1

The holidays are upon us! I couldn’t be more excited. December is definitely one of my favourite months of the year. Although I won’t be experiencing much of a holiday as I am mostly working. I have taken one week off from work and you best believe that I am going to be watching my Favourite Holiday Movies.

I thought I would share my favourite holiday movies with you guys. Some old favourites and some are new releases on Netflix. Netflix is definitely my go to when it comes to movie streaming.

I have really been enjoying Netflix original movies and series lately. With my week off I hope to watch as much as possible. My dream holiday would honestly be to spend it in my pj’s cosying up with junk food and chick flicks. I am pretty sure my husband will DISAPPROVE of this.


The Elf is such a classic, I love Will Ferrell) and Zooey Deschanel is this movie. Will Farrel is just so darn funny. One of my favourites is Step Brothers, I still rewatch it often.

Buddy (Will Ferrell) was accidentally transported to the North Pole as a toddler and raised to adulthood among Santa’s elves. Unable to shake the feeling that he doesn’t fit in, the adult Buddy travels to New York, in full elf uniform, in search of his real father. As it happens, this is Walter Hobbs (James Caan), a cynical businessman. After a DNA test proves this, Walter reluctantly attempts to start a relationship with the childlike Buddy with increasingly chaotic results.

Home Alone

What are the holidays without rewatching the iconic  Home Alone movies. The first Home alone released in 1990, the exact year I was born! Crazy right?

When bratty 8-year-old Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) acts out the night before a family trip to Paris, his mother (Catherine O’Hara) makes him sleep in the attic. After the McCallisters mistakenly leave for the airport without Kevin, he awakens to an empty house and assumes his wish to have no family has come true. But his excitement sours when he realizes that two con men (Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern) plan to rob the McCallister residence, and that he alone must protect the family home.

The Princess Switch

A new release on Netflix, if you are looking for a cheesy chick holiday movies then this is the movie for you.

Four Christmases

Looking for a romance holiday movie, then try Four Christmases it stares another favourite Vince Vaughn

While Brad counts the hours till he can escape the onslaught of crazy relatives, Kate begins to wonder about her own choices and ponders whether her family members are so crazy after all.
