It’s almost Christmas, and if the Christmas decorations, seasonal music everywhere haven’t gotten you in the mood yet, this Christmas Movie Marathon idea certainly will. Christmas Movie Marathon Day is celebrated each year on 23 December.
It’s the Christmas season, and we all need a little break from our daily lives. We all know that the holidays can be a stressful time for many people, and sometimes we need to take some time out for ourselves; one way to do this is by binge-watching some of your favourite holiday films. It’s also a great way to spend some quality time with close friends and family.
So, where to begin? The holiday season is full of movies and TV specials. But which ones are worth watching?
Before even choosing what to watch, you’ll have to set the mood first! For a Christmas lover, this wouldn’t be a factor, but just to be sure… do you have your Christmas decorations up? Set the mood with your Christmas tree, lights and decorations. Provide some Christmas hats to get everyone in a festive mood. To make this experience even better, set up a big screen somewhere in your home or your garden. Get out some blankets and comfortable pillows and have a Christmas picnic while watching those favourites. Oh, yes… and don’t forget the snacks.
