’Tis the season to be jolly! And what better way is there to be jolly than watching a holiday movie wrapped in a fuzzy blanket with a cup of hot chocolate on the side?
If you’re anything like me, then watching holiday movies is the best way to welcome winter break! So, here is my holiday roundup of movies and TV shows on Netflix this season:
First up on my list, A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding:
Who remembers A Christmas Princefrom 2017, the Netflix holiday rom-com that captured the hearts of many Winsor students? Well, those who loved that classic are in for a treat, because this sequel will not disappoint!
Kayla L. ’19 says that this movie “does a great job referencing its prequel so that the exciting plot is not lost.” I won’t spoil everything for you, but get ready to cozy up and watch what happens when Amber Moore (Rose McIver) realizes what really is at stake as a future queen of Aldovia.
Next, The Princess Switch:
Nowadays, there are many TV shows and movies where the main characters somehow switch places. The Princess Switch is not out of the ordinary, but its daring and romantic plot will definitely take your breath away. In fact, the two main characters, Stacey DeNovo, a baker from Chicago, and Lady Margaret Delacourt, Duchess of Montenaro, are both played by none other than Vanessa Hudgens, whose performance in this movie brought to life both women and wowed many viewers. In the setting of a Christmas wonderland in the beautiful Kingdom of Belgravia, watch to find out what happens as some holiday romance befalls both responsible Stacey and free-spirited Margaret.
For those craving more excitement, check out The Christmas Chronicles:
If you ever believed in Santa Claus when you were little, this movie will definitely bring back some old holiday memories. When the two main characters, siblings Teddy (Judah Lewis) and Kate (Darby Camp), suffer a loss in their family, it seems as though Christmas will never be the same again. But through love and unity, and of course, Santa Claus (Kurt Russell), get ready to hold on to your mug of hot chocolate as Teddy and Kate experience a special whirlwind of a journey full of Christmas chaos, adventure, and love.
Up for a TV show instead? Check out The Great British Baking Show ~Holidays~:
Baking is one of the most important parts of the holiday season! Similar to the regular episodes of The Great British Baking Show, contestants complete signature, technical, and showstopper challenges to see who will win the holiday baking crown. But there’s a catch: if you’ve ever watched episodes from previous seasons, some of the contestants in this holiday edition will look mighty familiar.
