  1. Exactly what I came looking for, thanks new on Netflix.

    Unfortunately, and I know this is out of your control, it’s not a very impressive line up.
    Arthur Christmas, The Holiday, Nativity and Elf are all on Amazon Prime. And there only the ones I’ve noticed without looking for any.

    If there is any big name ones on Netflix, help me out 😀 but this line up looks like Xmas films still left in any charity shop

    1. It’s kinda the other way round. A lot of romance movies are set around Christmas, in whole or part, then often become associated with Christmas. To the point now I’m sure it’s deliberate. If you can tag a film with Christmas, there’s a fair chance it’ll come back year after year.

      Saying that, I do find Christmas romantic.
