It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Though the tree has yet to make an appearance, Christmas has officially begun in my household with the first festive film of the season watched last night.

My boyfriend and I were joined by two of our friends for our usual Tuesday Film Club evening. As we searched Netflix UK looking for the film that this week’s host had in mind, a multitude of other festive favourites cropped up.

Home AloneSoon enough we found what we’d been looking for – the brilliant Home Alone.

Fast-forward to Kevin’s magnificent traps and high jinks and the laughter coming from my boyfriend and friends (27 and 28-year-old men) was nearly deafening.

Everyone has a particular Christmas favourite they like to watch every year; Home Alone definitely ticks the box for my boyfriend and friends.

I’ve watched and featured festive flicks on Cinematic Delights before, ranging from the much-loved Elf to Burton’s A Nightmare before Christmas.

This year, I’m planning on going back a few decades and watching such classics as It’s a Wonderful Life (1946), Miracle on 34th Street (1947) and White Christmas (1954).

I haven’t seen any of these before so when 12.30pm rolls by on Friday 18th and I’ve finished work for the year, I’ll have a look through Netflix UK and see whether they’re listed.

What will you be watching?

  1. Like you, Home Alone is always at the top of my Xmas viewing along with Scrooged. Hope you had a good one Claire and happy new year!
