As we are in the business of show here at GSA, we are celebrating Christmas in the best way we know how; with our favourite Christmas movies! So here are the top ten Christmas movies as voted by GSA staff.

And so, in no particular order…

10. Gremlins – “Because everyone forgets it’s a Christmas movie.” Thom, Digital Media Associate

9. Die Hard – “Because Hans Geruber is the best character ever.” Maeve, General Manager

8. Home Alone – “The soundtrack sums up Christmas for me” Kate, School Coordinator

7. Elf – “It’s hilarious.” Alice, Coordination Assistant

6. Muppet.Christmas.Carol – “Possibly the greatest film ever made.” Niamh, Receptionist

5. White Christmas –  “It’s a Christmas classic.” Cecelia, Marketing Assistant

4. The Neverending Story –  “..because Christmas magic would not exist without the fantasy world.” Anna, Education Coordinator. **[We’re aware this isn’t a Christmas movie, but we’re letting her away with it.]

3. The Grinch –  “My favourite quote has to be  “And he puzzled and puzzled ’till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.”” Rebecca, Shakespeare Coordinator

2. Miracle on 34th Street (90s version) – “I get choked up every time Kris Kindle is exonerated in the courtroom. And Mara Wilson is the best child actor ever.” Lauren, Head of Marketing

1. ET – “Not strictly a Christmas movie but it reminds me of being a kid at Christmas.” Helen, Receptionist
