The holiday season is perfect for spending some time at home (away from the hastiness of city-life) in the company of family, friends and loved ones. Flâneurs need to rest too…And just as you, the weekly GOINGS ON are on vacation until the week of January 1st!
Instead, a list of our favourite films to watch during the holidays! Get yourself a warm hot cocoa, gather around with loved ones, and get into the Christmas spirit with these holiday flicks!
The Nightmare Before Christmas
And who would ever think
And why? They’re covering it with tiny little things
They’ve got electric lights on strings
And there’s a smile on everyone
So, now, correct me if I’m wrong
Home Alone II
Merry Christmas, you filthy animal. I bet you’re used to seeing Home Alone on all the “Best Christmas Movie” lists out there…We suggest watching the second one instead (*so original*). Kevin, yet again, gets into mischief, but this time in New York. And what’s more festive than New York in December? President Trump makes a small appearance in the movie as well.
The Holiday season is made for sappy love films, guilty pleasure romantic comedies and seeing Hugh Grant on screen. Don’t miss out this year!
Technically not a Christmas movie per se, but we love watching it during this time of the year. It is undeniable, Paddington is the cutest bear that ever lived! The film is adorable, charming, visually appealing and sweet.
Bridget Jones's Diary
To watch partly for the iconic soundtrack, and partly for Darcy’s reindeer jumper. Despite all of it, we love Bridget just as she is.
The Polar Express
The magic and wonder of Christmas are perfectly illustrated in this Zemeckis film. A beautiful train, sweet friendships, and an animated Tom Hanks…What more could we ask for?
A Christmas murder-mystery musical starring the most talented French women. The dark comedy is based on a play by Robert Thomas and blends many genres.
Take some time off at home and relax with these flicks! We’ll return next week with the most interesting events in Montreal. Happy holidays!
