The 12 Blogging Questions Of Christmas – Day 4 – What Is Your Favourite Christmas Movie?

I saw a poll on the news this morning which announced the most popular Christmas movie of all time was ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’. It beat ‘Elf’ to the top spot which pleased me no end. If there’s one thing in life I can’t get my head around it’s the love affair people have with Will Ferrell running around New York in a pair of green tights. I don’t find it funny and I don’t find it moving. Zooey Deschanel can’t even save it.

Today’s Christmas question is simply – ‘What is Your Favourite Christmas Movie.’ For me, it’s got to be ‘Home Alone.’ Closely followed by ‘Die Hard.’ And I don’t care what you say, Bruce Willis running around a skyscraper in a vest shooting foreign actors may not be your festive cup of tea, but I’m including it as a Christmas movie. Yippy Yay Aye and all that to you too. I digress. Leave your comments below.

What Is Your Favourite Christmas Movie?

We hope that our story will inspire and encourage others. We have walked a rocky road yet here we are today, together and stronger than ever. We are far from perfect and our faith has been battered and bruised. But an untested faith is a pointless faith. Just as a fractured faith is better than none at all. We hope you enjoy the blog.

  1. My favourite holiday film is “Love Actually”. I am a Brit and love the ensemble cast that includes the wonderful late Alan Rickman.


  2. The Christmas Story is my favorite. Maybe because I was born in the 50’s but I love seeing Christmas through the eyes of this little boy and his family…it always makes me laugh.

  3. die hard for sure. on christmas eve every year, i watch bill murray’s “scrooged”. and there’s always time for “it’s a wonderful life”.


  4. Any movie version of A Christmas Carol. My son controls the remote so this week we’ve been watching Home Alone, EVERY DAY. He starts with the first one and watches all of them, even the horrible adaptation they made for television. I guess you know what my son’s favorite movie is!

  5. White Christmas and It’s a Wonderful Life are my husband’s favourites. I didn’t grow up with those movies, so while I do kind of enjoy them, they are not my favourites. Although I don’t know why it’s a Christmas movie, I love The Sound of Music. My absolute favourite Christmas shows though are the old TV specials of my childhood: Charlie Brown’s Christmas and How the Grinch Stole Christmas (not the Jim Carrey movie). My kids disagree with Die Hard being a Christmas movie, but I say it is! It’s as much a Christmas movie as Last Christmas is a Christmas song. 😉

  6. If I’m watching telly with a roomful of men, it’s Die Hard; and if there is even one woman to back me up, it’s Love Actually every single time. And yes, you MUST watch it! (And you’re not allowed to fancy the horrid office floozie who flirts with Alan Rickman … we all hate her … just sayin’) 😁

  7. I absolutely love It’s a Wonderful Life, another fav is, of course, A Christmas Carol – the original with Alistair Sims, not one of the remakes. It was a tradition in our house while I was growing up and for me it never gets old. You see I can never pick just one – one other is called One Magic Christmas with Mary Steenburgen – my kids think it’s depressing, but I love it.


  8. Hi Stephen. My family’s favorite is The Nativity Story, the straight up retelling of the birth of Jesus starting with Elizabeth and Zechariah and ending with Mary, Jospeh and Jesus escaping to Egypt. Ciaran Hinds’ portrayal of King Herod is absolutely wicked, and the three wise men (Melchoir, Balthasar, and Gaspar) provide some great lighthearted moments. But at the end, be sure not to miss the look of dread on Gaspar’s face as he presents the gift of myrrh, an embalming spice, as he realizes what that means for the Christ child. Fun topic!


  9. Love “Die Hard” but I never saw it as a Christmas movie. 😂 (Also, RIP Alan Rkckman.) I think for me it’s “How The Grinch Stole Christmas” (the original animated one) and “White Christmas”.


  10. Our favorite right now is called “The Star,” a cute, animated family film. I begrudgingly sat through it with my little ones last year, and was delightfully surprised at how much I loved it! It is beautifully done, and one we will watch every year!


  11. Oh, I always forget the name but it is about a single rich man bribing a single wife and her young daughter to pretend to be his family so he can make a contract deal with this boss and make more money. (The boss makes deals with family men) I also like the Veggie Tales version of Nicholas.


  12. You haven’t watched Love Actually?!!!!!!!! Every Christmas we watch: Home Alone with the kids plus, Love Actually and definitely Die Hard – have you seen the memes for it? “It’s not Christmas until I see Hans Gruber fall from the Nakatomi Tower” 😂😂😂


  13. “Elf” is growing on me, mostly because I have children.

    We watched “It’s a Wonderful Life” this year and all LOVED IT. I must have not seen it in a while because I only remember it being in black and white.

    I also like “Miracle on 34th Street.”

    The other films mentioned are great, too, but I wouldn’t call them favorites.


  14. My favorites include White Christmas, It’s a Wonderful Life, and Family Stone. Oh, and The Spirit of Christmas because Thomas Beaudoin is soooo nice to look at 😉
