Holly J - Ah, quite a few of my faves are on this list! I LOVE the Home Alone movies (except the 4th, I think? Let’s pretend that one never happened). No matter how many times I’ve seen them, especially the New York one (which is my favorite too!), they always make me laugh. I also looove Elf. I mean, who doesn’t? Oh, and A Charlie Brown Christmas! I haven’t seen Love, Actually, but I really want to. And I think I’ve seen Serendipity, but it was a LONG time ago and I don’t remember much about it. But I love Christmas movies and will definitely have to check some of these out.

Great post! 🙂

Chrystal - I adore Love Actually. I really do need to buy a copy so I can watch it anytime.

And Elf is another fave!

Great list.

Alexa S. - I love this post, E!! My favorite of all the movies you’ve mentioned is Love Actually. I watch that one constantly, at any time of year. It’s almost like comfort food in movie form, now that I think about it 😉

Emma @ Miss Print - Phew! I am very relieved to know that I have seen all of these at least once. I have to say of your list Miracle on 34th Street is probably my favorite followed very closely by Love, Actually.

Jess @ Gone with the Words - YES! Holiday movies are MY JAM. From your list, every year I watch Serendipity, Love Actually, Elf, Home Alone 1 and/or 2, and The Family Stone (which always makes me cry). Great list, Estelle!!

Tiff @ Mostly YA Lit - Excellent picks! My faves from this list are Love Actually, Serendipity, and Home Alone 2. I feel like this says a lot about me – my love of London and New York, especially at the holidays.

I have a real soft spot for the original Home Alone as well. I haven’t seen The Family Stone in awhile, I think I need to rewatch it.

Other holiday movies I adore: The Holiday (actually I can’t believe this isn’t on your list! It’s the best!) and While You Were Sleeping. I also love watching the Roswell Christmas episodes because they’re SO good.
