Okay, we’ll admit it: there are a lot of bad Christmas movies out there. Remember Black Christmas, that sloppy slasher remake from 2006? How about Surviving Christmas, the 2004 cringe-inducer that Ben Affleck would no doubt like to forget he ever appeared in? But for all the festive flops that somehow manage to make it onto our screens, there have been a few real crackers released over the years.
Films like Home Alone, Elf, Love Actually and The Holiday are so good, many of us enjoy them again and again every December. Watching the classics is almost like a holiday tradition, as Christmassy as carol singers, roaring fires, fairy lights and Brussels sprouts.
That’s why, to help you get in the spirit of the season, we’ve decided to list the top 5 Christmas movies ever made. Rest assured we’ve made this list – and checked it twice! – with the help of the Christmas entertainment experts from Bgo. Check it out below, and let us know if your favorite Christmas movie made the cut.
