Our Top Christmas Movies for Parents, Toddlers and Babies

by Jenny Taylor

I don’t know about you but with all the unknown lockdowns and self-isolation requirements lately, I am looking forward to snuggling at home over Christmas with my babies. We will be wrapped up in the duvet, toffee popcorn in our laps, and a list of all our favorite Christmas movies to watch.

It’s the time of year where we watch more tv than ever. What else is there to do in freezing temperatures, world pandemic and no school runs? I love Christmas movies both old and new. There is something so magical about them and you can see it in the kids eyes too.

We like to make our Christmas movie experience even more special by making it a big festive day in together. We wear our Christmas pj's, bake something Christmas-y in the morning like a Gingerbread house or toffee popcorn or Christmas cookies to eat during the movie. We pull the duvets and pillows off our beds and make a big cozy view area on the living room floor. One or two of us might even have our Santa hats on too.
