12 Days of Christmas Films

Christmas is without a doubt my favorite time of the year. I love everything about it, especially putting up the tree and baking all the delicious Christmas treats. So, I thought it would be really fun to do a "12 Days of Christmas Films" feature, where I will post an article about a Christmas film every day starting tomorrow and ending on December 25. This of course means that there won't be a "Film Friday" for the next couple of weeks, so I hope you don't mind. I don't know if I'm going to be able to pull this off, but I will definitely try my best. You can steal this idea for your own blog, if you want to. I'm pretty sure I've stolen it from someone else too. Here is the planned schedule:

And that is it. I am aware that some of these films are more Christmas-y than others, but they are all associated with Christmas in some way or the other, hence why they are in the list. I hope to make this a fun feature for all of you lovely people to read and I hope it puts you in the mood for Christmas. It will most definitely put me.


  1. What a great line-up!! So glad you're including "We're No Angels." I want to write about it but it is highly unlikely I'll get around to it lol. Love your festive new banner!!!

    1. I saw "We're No Angels" for the first time over Christmas last year and I absolutely loved it, so I just had to include it. Aww, thank you. :)
