Getting in Holiday Spirit – My favourite Romantic Christmas Films

Boohoo I am at home sick today :( Came down with a dry tickly cough a few days ago and immediately stocked up on medicine to try to beat it, but I failed. Feeling rightly miserable today so am warm in bed entertaining myself with cosy Christmas movies! They are getting me all in the holiday spirit so thought I’d share my favourite romantic Christmas films:

Love Actually (2004)

Massive star studded cast! The story begins five weeks before Christmas and follows the lives of ten different couples or individuals through the events of their lives and romantic misadventures up until Christmas Day.

Just adore everything about this movie and cant count how many times I have seen it on both hands!  The above is definitely one of my favourite scenes in the film ♥ Super cute!

The Holiday (2006)

Two career women in different countries, Amanda (Diaz) and Iris (Winslet), need a break from their lives and swap homes for the holidays through a home exchange website. Hoping the change of scenery will help them forget the men who have disappointed them, they unexpectedly find that a little Christmas magic fills their holiday escape with new romance.

While you were sleeping (1995)

In this romantic comedy, Lucy (Bullock) has a boring life as a fare collector with a crush on a man she sees daily on the Chicago railway. On Christmas day she saves him after a mugging that lands him in the path of an oncoming train. Lucy ends up at the hospital and is mistaken for his fiancé. Things snowball and she gets to know his family, including his brother Jack (Pullman), who doesn’t believe she is his brother’s fiancé. Old school but Sandra is just adorable in this movie!

Four Christmases (2008)

When upscale, happily unmarried San Francisco couple Kate (Reese Witherspoon) and Brad (Vince Vaughn) find themselves socked in by fog on Christmas morning, their exotic vacation plans morph into the family-centric holiday they had, until now, gleefully avoided. Vince just cracks me up in this film,  to the point of getting tears of laugher at some scenes!
