Christmas movies are a huge part of the build-up to Christmas, even if they are a bit cheesy!

In this blog, we bring you the answer to one of the most burning questions on everyone’s mind…. ‘What is social media’s favourite Christmas film?’

To determine what film is most popular on social media, we’ve searched for the title of the film alongside variations of the phrase ‘best movie’ and analysed which film has been most discussed over the last 30 days (Up to 17th Dec 2018).

There are a lot of Christmas films out there, so to choose we used a combination of Empires Top 30 Christmas films list and this top 10 Christmas films list.

Here are the films we analysed:

  • Elf
  • Polar Express
  • Home alone
  • The Grinch
  • Love actually
  • Die Hard
  • Gremlins
  • The Muppet Christmas Carol
  • Trading Places
  • The Nightmare Before Christmas
  • Scrooged
