If you're having a stay-home Christmas weekend with your loved ones, Santa Gnome recommends 5 of his favourite movies to amp up your Christmas!


1) Rise of the Guardians (2012)

What's Christmas without a little Frost? Enter Jack Frost, the mysterious new guardian who's responsible for the winter cold and has no memories of his past. He joins the rest of the Guardians, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, Sandman and Santa Claus to protect the hopes, imagination and beliefs of children all over the world when Pitch attempts to destroy them. Watch this for a little bit of fun and action, and to embrace your inner child. Santa Gnome loves this movie because it encourages the elves to work harder and North's modern and cool carriage inspires him to upgrade his own carriage design.


2) Home Alone (1990)

When an 8-year-old brat, Kevin McCallister, gets left at home alone accidentally while his family goes on a Christmas trip to Paris, his initial excitement turns into panic as he discovers two would-be burglars planning to rob his residence. Santa Gnome loves Kevin's smart little pranks as he outwits the two burglars to guard his home. Home Alone's a classic that emphasises on the importance of family and is an absolute must-watch if you're looking for an interesting live action comedy film.


3) Love Actually (2003)

If you're planning to netflix-and-chill with that special someone this Christmas eve, Love Actually's the movie you should definitely catch. Starring notable actors like Rowan Atkinson, everyone's beloved Mr Bean, and Liam Neeson (no, he'll not be finding you and killing you in this movie), it's the chronicle of nine intertwined love stories during the month of Christmas. Emphasising not only on romantic love, this heartwarming romantic comedy also stresses on the importance of family and friends. Are you ready to fall in love again?


4) Edward Scissorhands (1990)

The collaboration between Tim Burton and Johnny Depp has always resulted in extraordinary movies. Edward Scissorhands' the perfect movie to exhibit their flawless teamwork. The movie follows a kind and gentle young man, Edward, and his journey out of and back to isolation. The only thing different about Edward is that he has scissors as hands, as he was supposed to be the greatest creation of a near-complete human until his inventor died before giving him a proper pair of hands. His amazing hedge-trimming and hair-cutting skills make Santa Gnome hope that Edward has met him instead as he'd love to have Edward make his beard even more stylish during the busy festive season.


5) The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)

Who would've known that Tim Burton's so into Christmas? The Nightmare Before Christmas's a classic animation that you should catch, if you're into fantasy with a darker element to it. Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King of Halloween Town, has grown weary of his yearly routine and is unhappy that the residents of Christmas Town has so much more fun than them. He abducts Santa and takes over his job, resulting in an expected terrified reaction from the children. Santa Gnome loves the movie, but the part about the reindeer being hit always makes him cry. Hopefully it never happens to Rudolph...
