December is here which means it is now socially acceptable for all things Christmas, starting with the best Christmas comedies you can watch over the weekend to get you in the festive spirit. If you are part of the majority of the nation that started celebrating in November then you will have probably already watched hundreds of Christmas films.
There is nothing better than the festive season, curling up on the sofa with a blanket, a hot chocolate, and a good Christmas film. There are so many great Christmas films available on Netflix, Prime, and other streaming platforms, but if you love the nostalgic feeling that Christmas brings, you may prefer to watch a classic Christmas DVD.
