The holidays feel so close that we can practically touch them, which officially makes this the most magical time of the year. Whether it’s the promise of a fresh start with New Year’s Eve, all those festive parties, quality time with family and friends, or the twinkling lights hanging everywhere, the cheer in the air is contagious. In honor of all this merriment, Savoir Flair has put together a list of the six best festive films of all time – from romantic comedies to, well, more romantic comedies. Seriously, is there anything better than the sight of Hugh Grant dancing?

1

Love Actually

Love Actually is what Decembers are made of. It’s sentimental and witty and brings with it a touch of actual magic, courtesy of Hugh Grant’s memorable lead performance.

Watch it here.

The Holiday

The Holiday has so much going for it – Jude Law, for starters, as well as Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet, exotic locales, and plenty of romance – making it an easy choice for the season.

Sleepless in Seattle

This 90s classic starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan centers on a single Christmas wish. It’s touching, charming, and the perfect light-hearted romcom to unwind with this month.

New Year’s Eve

What happens when you get practically every A-lister to star in a single film? New Year’s Eve. Halle Berry, Jessica Biel, Robert De Niro, Ashton Kutcher, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Hilary Swank are just a few of the familiar faces you’ll find in this 2011 romantic comedy about a variety of stories set on the last day of the year.

Watch it here.

Elf

Will Ferrell stars as Buddy, a boy who has been raised by Santa’s elves in the North Pole. Our vote for the funniest festive movie ever made, it delivers hilarious, heart-warming lines like: “I planned out our whole day. First, we’ll make snow angels for two hours, then we’ll go ice skating, then we’ll eat a whole roll of Toll House cookie dough as fast as we can, and then we’ll snuggle.”

Home Alone

This beloved cult classic tells the story of eight-year-old Kevin (played by Macaulay Culkin) who is left behind as his family rushes off for their Christmas vacation. The movie is a must-watch for its action, sweet family sentiments, and – of course – all the cool stuff Kevin gets to do without his mom and dad around.

Watch it here.
