Its the most wonderful time of the year.
I don’t know about you but there’s nothing better than watching a Christmas film on a cosy December night, during the festive season.
Christmas films are the perfect background noise to so many Christmas activities. Be it:
- Baking – See my cookie recipe here!
- Wrapping presents
- Decorating the tree
So, because I’m really feeling that good holiday mood. I wanted to share three of my favourite Christmas films with you.
I’ve also been careful to select films that I know are on Netflix. As I’m sure most of you will have access to that. If not, I really recommend you get it for the festive period. (so many good films/shows)Don’t miss out!
A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding
So if you haven’t seen this films prequel (have you been under a rock?) A Christmas prince. Then you also need to add that to your watching list!
The Christmas Prince, follows that perfect cheesy storyline where a girl just happens to find herself in a foreign faraway land and just happens BY CHANCE to bump into the prince of that land.
The sequel, follows their royal wedding preparations in the run up to Christmas. Of course, not everything can go as smoothly as originally planned. So expect, outrageous wedding outfits, hilarious plot lines and VERY cheesy acting.
Yet somehow it’s still brilliant?
The Princess Switch
Did you love High School Musical as much as I did? Do you sometimes still fangirl of Vanessa Hudgens? Cause me (too) neither.
Seriously, The Princess Switch is the purest and one of the prettiest films I’ve seen this festive season.
Firstly it’s all about a Christmas baking contest that just happens to be happening in a faraway European kingdom.
Vanessa Hudgens plays the two mains leads, the Baker and the Princess. Its essentially like a a festive version of the parent trap with no parents. Also with a princess and the pauper twist. Brilliant combination!
The two girls switch places (as they’re basically identical and no one could ever notice!) and learn a bit about what the others life is like. (Of course they just happen to fall in love with each others best friend & husband to be) in the process.
Needless to say it gets a little messy from there on out.
A Christmas Inheritance
This is officially the most cheesiest Christmas film I’ve come across this season. I do not regret watching this at all. No matter how odd it got.
It follows that typical story of the rich girl gets shipped off to a small town to discover more to life than just parties and wild nights out.
She goes on a little journey of self discovery and learns more about her family history in the process. Trust me, it did not go in the direction that I thought it would.
It was actually super sweet to see the character development throughout the film.
The lead actress also portrayed this clumsy, naive girl off perfectly. There are sometime hidden gems of comedy in there and its really easy watching for all ages!
Now go grab a Hot Chocolate!
So theres the perfect dose of Christmas films to get your holiday binge fest going. Honestly nothing makes me happier than a cute hot chocolate and a Christmas film in the run up to the holidays.
Also just as little bonus, the Nativity is also on Netflix right now. A golden gem of a Christmas film, so please add it to your list.
What films are you watching during the festive period this season? Or better yet what are your all time favourite Christmas films?
