If Christmas is here I can indulge....

In light of the premature (in my opinion!) arrival of Christmas in my house, I felt obligated to start embracing the season in my usual favourite fashion......

watching a Christmas film! I don't usually start quite as early as this but if I can have Christmas cards through my letterbox I can have Christmas films on the TV!!

I love watching Christmas films and every year I record as many as I can on the Sky plus box and then I work my way through them..... it's great and really make sme feel festive! It drives my hubby slightly crazy as he says all the films have similar stories eg boy meets girl, girl already has a boyfriend but by the end of the film she realises the new boy is her true love and they all live happily ever after. Another example is the family tale, all upset and/or apart at Thanksgiving but all together and happy at Christmas! Etc etc you get the picture.

Christmas film review number 1 'A Christmas Angel'

An elderly man recruits a lonely young woman to help with festive acts of good will. A feel good film about helping others, friendship and thoughtfulness. ****/***** (4* out of5*)

Look out for more of my reviews as I work my way through the films currently showing on the Movie Channels!!


  1. ohh i havent seen this ruthie. I would reccomend The Holiday with JUDE LAW! Amazing!

  2. My all time favourite film is "Scrooged" I just can't get enough of the psycho-fairy! That always makes me feel Christmassy. You just can't beat being snuggled up on the couch with a mug of hot chocolate and a feel good film. Jaqui x

  3. Really helpful! I will start a list, depending on your recommendations because I never know what to watch and usually end up not watching anything.:)
