What do all awesome Christmas films have in common? Jingly bells? Check. Happy endings? Check. Snowfall at a really poignant moment of self-realisation? Check.
It should come as no surprise to know that I am an 80s child with the films that have made the cut in this list. There are some classics missing, I know, but they just aren’t brightly coloured or sickly sweet enough to really hit the spot for me. Maybe when I’m old and take joy in bleak stuff, sorry classics, but that time is not now. Onwards, with the list!
