Christmas is all about bonding and there is nothing more special than spending quality time with family and friends over the festive season. While some prefer going out to have a ball, some of you would prefer sitting down in the living room, probably watching a series of festive flicks while sipping some punch. For those of you that are a lot like us and prefer the latter, we have a list of five films that could easily count as Christmas go-tos.
Rest assured every film in our cinematic sack is sure to immerse, charm and entertain you.
