It’s the first week of Christmas and while we all start to get enveloped by the festive spirit I thought it an excellent time to share with you all my ultimate list of Christmas Movies to watch before Christmas!
Now, this list is in no particular order… because let’s be real… who can actually pick out just one favourite Christmas Movie… or indeed order them in preference! There is just too much Christmas goodness in all of them!
Before we get to the actual Christmas Movie List that setting/ set up for watching your Christmas Movie is just as important as watching a festive treat!
For a start, you need a roaring fire – no Christmas Movie is complete without one! Next are drinks and snacks. My personal favourites at the movement are Hot Ginger Bread Chocolate and Cookies or Popcorn with Reeses Pieces sprinkled on top. [Snack variety is important during the festive season :)]. Comfy pyjamas and fluffy socks wrapped up in a super soft blanket! And before you sit down you need to light all your favourite candles and scatter them around the room… heaven!
Once the scene is set, snacks prepared and you are appropriately dressed it is time to choose a movie to watch.
Selecting a Christmas Movie seems like it would be easy… but it’s not. There are so many great ones to choose from! Some best watched alone and others with someone special!
