Leon the Snowman: Why the long face, Buddy?
Buddy: It seems I’m not an elf.
Leon the Snowman: Of course you’re not an elf. You’re six-foot-three and had a beard since you were fifteen.
Everyone has their favourite Christmas movie. For some, it’s an integral part of their advent preparations sitting down to watch that all time classic that sums up Christmas for them, or conjures up some fond memory of Christmas past.
A film that has quickly become a favourite in our household is ‘Elf‘. Not quite ‘It’s a wonderful life‘ I know, but it’s up there! I’m not sure whether it’s the utterly preposterous storyline, the schmaltzy romance or the hilarious Will Ferrell that makes this film, but if you’re looking for an hour and a half of festive cheer, then look no further.
I was torn between a number of different films to recommend during advent, as Home Alone and Die Hard would be up there too as my all time Christmas greats. Or what about years of sifting through the Radio Times at Christmas to see if The Wizard of Oz, The Sound of Music or Where Eagles Dare were on yet again…?
What about you? What would be your curl-up-infront-of-an-open-fire-by-the-twinkling-lights-of-the-tree-movie?
