Christmas movies for 2020

Christmas might not be the same this year, but that doesn’t mean the traditions of festive films can’t happen.

In fact, we’re probably going to have more time on our hands, so why not crack out the popcorn, and binge watch Christmas films?

Favourite Christmas films

Christmas movies have come a long way since we watched the same ones on repeat. I grew up on Santa Claus: The Movie, and later Home Alone. Over and over, and over.


As an adult, I became a little obsessed with watching Christmas TV specials, and then picking up discount DVDs at supermarkets. At one point, back in the days when we used to actually own movies, Christmas films were the majority of my DVD collection.

So naturally, when it cam to writing this post, I had a head start.

Work your way through this epic list of festive films to get you started on your countdown to Christmas this year.
