1. Home Alone


The Home Alone series is based on a kid home alone at Christmas and takes charge to defend his home from burglars in the absence of his family.

4. A Christmas Carol

Adapted into numerous cinematic versions from Charles Dickens’ classic novel, it is a tale that is symbolic to Christmas lore. On our list we have put the 2009 version with Jim Carrey. Like all others, Disney succeeds in bringing Scrooge and his cynicism to life in this version as well.

5. Miracle on 34th Street


One of the perennial Christmas favourites, the cynics who refute the existence of Santa Claus should certainly give it a watch. This movie is sentimental and manipulative and comes out to be a solid family feature that makes it difficult to dislike. The movie has been made twice-in 1947 and 1994 for two different generations but it never loses out it blissful Christmas appeal.

So get on with all that visual celebration! Oh. We almost forgot. Merry Christmas! 😀

I take as gospel the fact that books are written to be treasured, movies and tv series to be revered and entertain and music to be cherished for a blissful course to take delights in our lives.
