There’s a lot of New Years Eve love going on – so much so that Viggy gets sent back to hell via a river of slime no doubt and a slime encrusted building is saved – all by the goodwill and love of the Christmas/ New Year period 🙂
I did struggle towards the end of the list though!
And although many believe it isn’t Christmas until Hans Grubber is seen falling from the Nakatomi Plaza, I don’t think that Die Hard is a Christmas film.
Let me know in the comments what your favourite Christmas films are!
Merry Christmas and a happy New Year,
