Christmas has fully arrived and that means getting the tree up and decorated, switching your morning cuppa to a hot chocolate and of course kicking back and watching a festive flick.

A recent survey by Currys.co.uk asked 2000 British residents about their Christmas Eve traditions, and the majority (37%) said they spend the evening watching Christmas movies but which ones?…

Well, it will come as no surprise but Home Alone took the top spot with 21% loving the 1990’s classic which saw the 8-year-old Kevin McAllister defend his home against the wet bandits using inventive, and eye-watering, booby traps.

Second place was everyone’s favourite Elf – Buddy the Elf with 19% of Brits choosing this one – “Son of a nutcracker!”

Supsiringly and gave us a moment of pause in the office hitting the top 10 spot was none other than DIE HARD! – is it a Christmas movie isn’t it – we’ll debate that another day.
