8. Frozen 1 & 2

Although not necessarily Christmas films, you have to admit both Frozen films are great to watch around Christmas.

The first film tells the story of Anna and Elsa. Elsa was born with magical powers, meaning she is able to create ice and snow.

Elsa is kept apart from her sister, however when she is to be crowned Queen of Arundelle, she unintentionally engulfs the kingdom in ice and snow.

With the sequel released in 2019, both films are perfect to watch on Christmas Eve, especially if you’ve got kids or the grandkids over.

‘Twas the Night is a Disney Channel Original film released in 2001.

It tells the story of a mischievous 14-year-old and his uncle who decide to take Santa’s high-tech sleigh out.
