10 Films to Make Your Christmas Even More Magical

Christmas is one of the most magical holidays because it’s the time of the year when families gather together, friends reunite, and cities all over the world are full of lights and love. It’s the time of the year when we bring presents and presence into the lives of the people we love the most. It’s also the time of the year to remember what truly is important in life: that magic resides in the little things, that no dream is too big, that hope is always to be found, that love is the answer, that miracles really do happen.

So here’s a couple of movies to inspire you beyond the festive mood and to guide you how to fully express your gratitude and love to the most special people in your life!

10.Miracle on 34th Street (1947)

…it’s a frame of mind!

Oh, what a joy it is to be a child and have no worries but the one to prove that Santa exists! It’s the kind of movie that makes you remember that the child within you will stay with you for as long as you let it. If you silence it, it will perish it; but if you let it be a friend, it will surely lead you to both big miracles and little moments of magic in the everyday life.

9.Stardust (2007)

What better time than Christmas to witness the birth of new love, one between a man and a fallen star. A fairytale that makes you shine brighter and brighter as you watch, because the more the story unfolds, the more you fall in love with the film!

8.Polar Express (2004)

As the Little Prince says, “It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” This is an animation both for kids and adults, for it has lessons for all. To believe in friendship and love is the same as believing in magic: one must remember it in order to feel it!

7.Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971) or Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005)
