Have you ever buried yourself in your couch for hours on end binge-watching holiday movies till you realized you haven’t eaten or gone to the bathroom in more than 12 hours? Yep, we’ve all been there. But while watching…did you ever feel that these movies were, like, reading your mind and speaking to your soul?! You’re def not crazy because we KNOW. It’s true, Christmas films are like that one great-aunt you see maybe once a year who hits you with some wacky-ass wisdom.
We all know the holiday season is a massive, months-long mess, and I think those festive *kind of dramatic* movies have really proven that all hell breaks loose during Christmastime. Almost every holiday flick out there has some sort of drastic issue that needs to be solved RIGHT before the 25th and of course you only have some amount of minutes, hours, or days to figure it out.
For some extremely strange reason, holiday movies also love shutting out parents? Not to really bring us to a dark place (during the most wonderful time of the year, LOL), but have you noticed that almost all the main characters in these movies have a dead parent? IDK what in the world that means, but I don’t think I wanna know that one, Aunt Tonya.
I will say, I have learned a thing or two about ~love~ thanks to Christmas films. One of them being if a man gets shirtless around you, then it’s true love and you’re meant to be together. I know, it sounds so simple, but TRUST!!! Oh, and you should never accept anything less than royalty.
