So if you really love Christmas…come on and let it snow!

It’s that time of year again.  Kind of sneaks up on you doesn’t it?  Apparently it’s only two weeks to Christmas.

Those of you who’ve been around a while will know that last year I did a series of posts on “The Twelve Films of Christmas” counting down the days to go with a collection of increasingly festive films.  There’s no point in repeating myself, so I’m going to (slightly lazily) put the links up here for anyone who missed it.

The 12 films of Chrismas, Part One: The Build Up
The 12 films of Christmas, Part Two: Christmas Hols
The 12 films of Christmas, Part Three: Christmas Eve!

I’ve already started my seasonal screenings with Love Actually last weekend.  I know a lot of people out there hate it but I really can’t think of a better bit of festive schmaltz to start you off.

I also managed to catch Fred Claus recently and was pleasantly surprised.  I’d written it off into the Bad Santa pile but I was completely wrong.  It’s actually quite a sweet, if predictable, bit of Christmas fun, with some funny moments and a strong ensemble cast (Vince Vaughan, Paul Giamatti, Kevin Spacey, Miranda Richardson, Rachel Weisz).  The “Siblings Anonymous” scene is just briliant, gotta love Stephen Baldwin for that.

With that little lot to keep you busy, you’ll be singing carols and roasting chesnuts over an open fire before you know it!
