Simon Cowell watches Christmas movies on sunshine breaks

Dec 24, 2013 | 8:05am EST

Music mogul Simon Cowell gets into the holiday spirit during his annual sunshine break by watching Christmas classic It's A Wonderful Life. The X Factor mogul shuns the wintry weather in his native U.K. and spends every Christmas on vacation in the Caribbean, but he always makes sure he has a copy of James Stewart's movie classic with him. He tells Britain's Shortlist magazine, "We always watch It's A Wonderful Life... It's the best Christmas movie of all time. Every time I see it, it always puts me in a good mood... but I'm always in the Caribbean. I go somewhere hot now." Cowell also names board games Trivial Pursuit and Balderdash as his festive must-haves. Christmas 2013 will be Cowell's final Christmas as a childless star - his girlfriend Lauren Silverman will give birth to the couple's first child in the new year.
