When it’s cold outside, there’s nothing quite like hunkering down on the sofa with a hot drink and a mince pie and sticking on a classic Christmas movie. Filled with memorable songs, cute child actors and important messages about the spirit of giving, Christmas movies can be enough to get even the scroogiest of Scrooges feeling festive.
From classics to cartoons, we’ve collated a list of tear jerker moments from our favourite Christmas films. Try not feeling festive after watching these clips…
It’s A Wonderful Life
Some films never get old, like this 1946 classic. Zuzu Bailey’s famous line, “every time a bell rings an angel gets its wings”, is a moment guaranteed to cue the waterworks.
Here’s a Christmas movie strewn with heart warming moments. It’s hard to choose just one, but Mark professing his undying love for Juliet via written placards never fails to make us go ‘aaaaaah’.
Meet Me In St. Louis
The beautiful Judy Garland lifts glum spirits singing ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’ – a song that soon became one of the world’s favourites.
From the festive costumes to the smooching by the tree, everything about this scene is pure Christmas perfection.
Family members of all ages will love this Christmas classic, so stick on an old copy and prepare to well up at this touching moment…
The Nightmare Before Christmas
Who wouldn’t break into song upon discovering the wonderful Christmas Town? A spectacular musical moment from this animated marvel…
Zooey Deschanel and Will Ferrell’s mini duet of ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ is enough to get anyone in the Christmas spirit…
Muppet Christmas Carol
Chock-a-block with great Yuletide songs, this is a film full of warming moments for the whole family.
How The Grinch Stole Christmas
What would a Christmas movie moment be without this touching scene?
A Charlie Brown Christmas
Although the children and Snoopy are in the spirit, Charlie Brown, bless him, is down in the dumps about Christmas.
Time to cosy up on the sofa for a Christmas move marathon. We won’t tell if you don’t…
