It’s Fri-yay, also known as Blogmas day 8! What better day of the week is there than Friday to cuddle up and watch some Christmas movies with your babe? Buckle up for the best Christmas movie lineup ever. Oh and a drinking game as well!
The Hallmark channel is fired up, as is your credit card bill I’m sure. If you’re like me and would rather snuggle up on the couch with some homemade Bailey’s and watch some Santa Flix, aka Netflix and holiday chill, then buckle up! I’ve got some great movie choices for you.
Admittedly, quite a few of the movies we watch every year aren’t on Netflix and we do have to… Erm, download them. Yeah, we’re those people. But hey, we don’t have a DVD or Blu Ray player. It’s just extra crap and frankly, one more thing for the little man to break.
Go make yourself some Bailey’s and pop the corn, it’s movie time.
Star Wars for Christmas?
Funny fact, you’re going to see something in this list that isn’t like the others. Star Wars. Why? I’ll tell you! So, years ago when hubs and I were off for a few days together during Christmas, he introduced me to Star Wars. We binge-watched all of the movies. I won’t get into which order you should watch them in but this guide will help you choose the right order for you.
Now, every Christmas, Star Wars is just kind of our weird thing. It could also be because it is one of the only times we’d have a few days together guaranteed so we’d just hold up in our apartment, drag out the air mattress, and binge it all. It was wonderful and I love those memories. It’s kind of great that the new Star Wars is coming out for Christmas time this year, just shows we’re not the only holiday dorks.
TV Series with Christmas Specials
Aside from Luke and Leia, we spend time with Doctor Who. I shouldn’t need to tell you why. It’s British (minus Peter Capaldi since he’s Scottish), it’s festive, it’s nerdy, it’s awesome. We look forward to the Doctor Who Christmas episode every year, it’s pretty awesome.
Another British show that has a few Christmas episodes is Mrs. Brown’s Boys. It’s a sitcom starring a man acting as a woman who is so damn funny. I wouldn’t watch this with kids, however. If you’re easily offended or politically correct, you may not be into this. However, if you’re either of those, you probably shouldn’t be reading this blog either. Right? Right.
On to the movies. Well, Star Wars are movies but yeah, on to actual Christmas movies.
