Christmas films are always loved this time of year, as everyone gathers around the fire to watch them. While we may be further apart than normal this year, Christmas movies allow us to feel close to those we love. Certain scenes can remind us of Christmases gone by – Express.co.uk rounds up some of the most iconic movie moments.

A study, by Vue Cinemas, polled 1,500 British film fans to work out what their favourite Christmas film moments were.

According to research, there is one scene which is the most iconic for Brits, and it doesn’t even come from a British film.

Home Alone topped the list, but there were some real tearjerking, heartwarming other moments to follow.

  1. Kevin McCallister asks for his family back in time for Christmas (Home Alone)
  2. Kevin has an impromptu party and keeps the burglars away (Home Alone)

  3. Buddy the elf learns Santa is coming to town and exclaims ‘SAAANTAAAA’ (Elf)   

  4. The “Keep the Change You Filthy Animal” moment (Home Alone)

Fans’ favourite scene is from Home Alone, when young Kevin McAllister (played by Macaulay Culkin) asked for his parents to come home.

This was a beautiful moment which showed how, while he may have thought his family disappearing was the best Christmas gift ever, all he really wanted was their return.

The second best moment also came from Home Alone, when Kevin has an impromptu party and keeps the burglars away.

In this moment, Kevin uses models, household appliances and anything he can get his hands on to create the look of a party, meaning the burglars will believe his family is home for the holidays.

The Vue Cinemas research named Elf in the third spot, with one particular moment becoming important.

Buddy the Elf, played by Will Ferrell, has travelled to New York City to meet his real father after growing up with the elves in the North Pole.

New York City has not yet broken his spirit, and he begins working in a department store as an elf, discovering Santa is expecting to come to the store.

Of course, this Santa is not the real Father Christmas he was expecting, but nevertheless, he screams in delight, exclaiming the name of Santa Claus loudly and proudly in the middle of the shop.

Home Alone also arrives in the fourth place of the list, in a moment which truly became iconic.

In the fourth place moment, Kevin tries again to fool people by ordering a pizza but using a movie as his own voice.

The movie, called Angels with Filthy Souls in the film, though based on the real life movie Angels with Dirty Faces, shows a meeting a gangster and someone who has betrayed him.

Kevin cleverly uses this film to provide the male dialogue for his pizza delivery, meaning the delivery boy believes he is in danger from a very frightening assailant with a machine gun.

Taking fifth place: The Polar Express.

In The Polar Express, a young boy takes an incredible journey after becoming sceptical about Christmas.

As the film ends, he finds his belief in Santa Claus and as the bell rings, it means he can meet the man for real.
