It's that time of year where all of the cheesy Christmas movies are constantly playing all over TV. Personally, I could watch Christmas movies all year round because they're just the best. They put you in the mood for celebrating Christmas, and all of the story lines are so good, even though they're pretty predictable.
Christmas movies never fail to make me happy and they always put a smile on my face. I such a sucker for cheesy rom coms, especially with a Christmas theme.
Here's a ranking of my favorite Christmas movies to watch this holiday season.
Of course Elf made the list. Will Ferrell does a fantastic job in this movie, and I find myself constantly laughing throughout this entire movie. Every year on Christmas eve, my family ends up watching this in our new pajamas that we just got to open, and after we had homemade lasagna.
This movie holds a special place in my heart because it reminds me of spending time with my family the night before Christmas, and nothing can ever replace that.
4. The Christmas Chronicles
I recently watched this movie last week with my mom and dad. I didn't have too high of hopes for this movie, but I was proven wrong by the end.
The story is about two siblings that lost their dad, and are spending their first Christmas without him in Boston. They don't get along very well, but they decide that they want to catch Santa in action on Christmas Eve.
When they catch Santa, they decided to jump in his sleigh, without him knowing until they get to Chicago. Then the sleigh breaks and crashes and they have to help Santa get his sleigh back together to save Christmas.
It's a super cute movie, and I would recommend it to anyone!
3. Four Christmases
This movie is hands down the funniest Christmas movie. Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn are a hilarious duo, and they keep me laughing from start to end.
From Vince's brothers being cage fighters, Reese's mom dating a pastor and then Reese having to play Mary in a live action of the manger scene, and Vince's best friend dating his mom; the movie is a whirlwind of actions.
Every time I watch this movie, it never disappoints, and it's just as funny as the first time.
2. Christmas with the Kranks
This is my mom's favorite Christmas movie of all time! It's on all the time at my house, and it's always recorded on DVR just in case. The movie is about how Luther and Nora Krank decide to take a cruise than celebrate Christmas.
This decision upsets their Christmas crazy neighbors, and throughout the whole movie they try to convince them to celebrate it with them.
The movie is a good laugh, and my favorite part is when Luther and Nora are getting spray tans at the mall, and their pastor runs into them, how awkward!
1. Love Actually
Ugh, this movie is just truly the best Christmas movie of all time. All of the love stories going on, and all of them oddly intertwined together is so cute.
My favorite love story has to be the one between the secretary and the prime minister. It's such a cute story, especially how he doesn't know where she lives, but yet he still goes to look for her on Christmas.
The other cute love story is when Colin Firth flies to Spain to admit his feelings for Aurelia in a restaurant, speaking very broken Spanish. It's such a cute declaration of love, and it response she said yes in English, which she didn't know before she met him.
These are my go to Christmas movies, and I hope some of these are yours too!
