The Holiday season is finally here, so get your hot chocolate, some snacks, and a cozy blanket because Netflix has brought to us some new Christmas Movies to binge on! So be ready for a marathon of seasonal movies to get you in the holiday spirit!
The Holiday Calendar
The Holiday Calendar is about a young woman with a passion for photography. Abby Sutton is looking for a new job because she isn’t too happy with her current one. Abby is trying to get noticed by people in order to start her photography career right, but when her grandfather gives her an antique calendar that predicts the future, things don’t turn out all too well.
If you haven’t seen this movie yet, I recommend you watch it if you like romantic comedies. The ending is cute and magical and brings a lot of Christmas joy. Overall, I enjoyed the movie and I think a lot of people would too.
The Princess Switch
Starring Vanessa Hudgens in The Princess Switch when two lookalike women “bump” into each other for the first time they realized although they look the same, they live completely different lives. Margaret is the duchess of Montanaro and Stacy owns a small bakery in Chicago. With only a week before Christmas they plan on switching roles for a change and everyone is on to them Margaret falls in love with Stacy’s coworker, Kevin, and Stacy falls in love with Margaret’s fiance, Edward! Is this just a coincidence or is this the magic of Christmas?
I recommend The Princess Switch if you love watching cute, romantic, seasonal movies. I enjoyed watching this movie because it was full of entertainment and kept me interested.
The Christmas Chronicles
In The Christmas Chronicles a family loses their father and Christmas is just not the same. Two kids, a brother and a sister, come together to try and catch Santa in the act of giving presents to everyone. They end up going into Santa’s sleigh for a little sneak peek. But what happens when they ruin Christmas? Santa loses his magic hat, his flying reindeer, and worst of all, all the toys. They go on a journey to help Santa find his missing things so Christmas isn’t ruined.
I recommend this family friendly movie that is full of adventure and Christmas magic. This movie is a great way to bring the family together for a cozy movie night, with hot chocolate and some popcorn.
A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding
A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding is a sequel to A Christmas Prince that came out in 2017. A Christmas Prince: The royal wedding is about a young woman, Amber who is trying to plan her and her prince’s wedding. Amber is conflicted with the wedding designer and thinks the wedding they are trying to plan is going to be to “over the top”. But that’s not her only issue, Amber is also second-guessing herself by thinking she is not the right fit for a queen.
I didn’t like the movie, but I might have enjoyed it a little bit more if I had seen the first one before I watched the sequel. The movie seemed too casual for the royal people to even be royal. The movie would have been better if it had looked more realistic.
