‘Tis the season for relaxing on front of the TV with a tin of Roses and a Christmas movie marathon! Is there a better way to spend winter evenings? We don’t think so! Here are four of our favourites on Netflix right now.
Kicking things off with a movie that people tend to love or hate. For the last fifteen years, Love Actually has been a must-watch when Christmas comes around. With a mix of nine intertwined stories, it’s one movie that will keep you on your toes! While it follows a variety of characters from the newly elected Prime Minister to a struggling writer, you’re sure to be laughing and crying along the way. Love Actually also has an amazingly star-studded cast, including Alan Rickman, Hugh Grant, Emma Thompson and many more. So if you haven’t gotten around to watching it yet, grab the Celebrations and enjoy!
A rom-com favourite, The Holiday is another Christmas movie that plays on intertwined love stories. Two women from opposite sides of the world, decide to exchange homes during the Christmas holidays to escape from heartbreak. Once overseas, the two main character’s lives are changed in unexpected twists and turns. A feel-good movie that’s perfect for a chilled evening in front of the fire!
Who can believe this movie is now 20 years old? We all know the story of Jack Frost after this length of time, but once we see Jack the snowman spring to life it’s like watching it for the first time all over again! This is an emotional one, so grab the tissues and get ready!
The Christmas Chronicles
The latest Christmas movie to hit Netflix, and possibly one of the best! Two siblings hatch a plan to catch Santa in the act on Christmas Eve, although things start to go downhill once Santa loses both his reindeer and all of the presents! The three must then try to save Christmas before time runs out, but this becomes a problem when Santa himself ends up behind bars! A laugh out loud movie that the whole family can enjoy.
