When I first thought about this post idea my feelings were telling me that this is a great and easy topic. I mean it is not rocket science to put together 10 films about Christmas. Well, good ones and my favourite ones is a challenge. To remind myself what there is I looked up on the Internet all the Top 10, 50 and even 70 of holiday-themed productions and I was truly disappointed. I also learned that I have to watch a few very old films, that somehow I have never seen and they seem to be a big and everlasting hit like the one with Judy Garland „Meet me in St. Louis”. On my list, you will find two of the most popular romantic comedies about Christmas ever. There will be a few Netflix productions, that we enjoyed and some fairytales because December feels like one big fairytale. I wonder if there is anything that surprised you here? Happy watching!
