Now we’re in November, it is time to start thinking about Christmas films. In the past we’ve struggled to get in to the Christmas feel until a few days before the big day, so we now start watching Christmas films early. We start with films that have a slight Christmas connection (almost blink and you miss it) and gradually build up the Christmas feel the closer we get to Christmas day.
So last night we started with Mr & Mrs Smith* which is based at Christmas time, but it is not mentioned so it is very easy to not notice it unless you are looking at the background. We class this type of film as Level 1; Level 3 is very festive possibly with Christmas in the title, and Level 2 are those in the middle for example Christmas is mentioned, but it isn’t the main part of the story.
This is our list of films grouped by the level of Christmas; plus a list of films we don’t have that I believe could be added to the list.
Italics means we don’t own it yet
Note: I’m updating the list with the suggestions people are making in the comments
When do you start watching Christmas films? What are your favourites? Are they in my list?
