Would you like to spend some quality time snuggling up with someone you love? Maybe in front of a fire on Christmas Eve. Or Christmas evening after all the craziness is over. How about enjoying a romantic Christmas movie together? Sure it might be a “chick flick”…but with the right atmosphere and some encouragement… Well, who knows what might happen.
Here are some of my favorite romantic Christmas movies:
Love Actually: The movie follows the love lives of eight different couples in London just before Christmas. This is a “feel good” romantic comedy starring Hugh Grant, Liam Neeson, Colin Firth and Emma Thompson.
The Holiday: The movie revolves around two women who meet online at a home exchange website and impulsively decide to trade homes for the holiday season. Amanda wants to get away from LA after finding out the man she lived with has been unfaithful. Iris needs to get away from England when the man she loves is about to marry someone else. Both women find new romances. This is a romantic comedy starring Kate Winslet, Jude Law, Cameron Diaz and Jack Black.
The Family Stone: An uptight businesswoman, played by Sarah Jessica Parker, goes to meet her boyfriend’s free-spirited family over the Christmas holidays.
Serendipity: One magical evening two people meet unexpectedly while Christmas shopping and part without expectation when she decides fate must determine if they are meant to be together. Years later, with many obstacles, they meet again. The movie stars John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale.
