Christmas is a time of family meetings. The Christmas Eve table with twelve dishes (or more or less the same amount) attracts all members of the whole family to celebrate this special time together. However, Christmas Eve is only an evening, and not everyone wants to feast for two consecutive days.
Why did you choose the cinema? Christmas is not conducive to special activities. Recently winter sports have been hard to practice where December is more like the beginning of November. Sledges would have to have wheels, and skiing or snowboarding is not even worth mentioning. This free time should therefore be used for the blissful laziness that everyone deserves.
The films for Christmas are an offer that you can try out while spending time with your closest family, friends, the other half or just in your own company. In our list you will find Christmas comedies, fairy tales, something for an older audience and Christmas films about love. Choose a few, sit back in front of your TV or laptop screen and start watching!
If you have to travel by train, bus or maybe even plane to meet with your loved ones, it’s worth to rip up some Christmas movie proposals for you. This way, you will feel the magic of a star, even if you are in an unattractive means of transport.

Will Fred be able to handle this task?
An unquestionable symbol of Christmas – a green hill has recently returned in a new version of the film. The whole is based, like the Christmas Eve Story, on a book from 1957.
