Part of the reality every Christmas is that people get bored. I'm talking real bored. And since you've got to kill time anyway, and sitting around a television or a screen is a great way to do that.
But everyone has different tastes. So the question is: when you've got a few hours to kill over Christmas, and you and your family or chosen family are all in the one room, what do you watch?
My family has always enjoyed watching a movie or a series, but we've never been the type to pick Christmas movies per se. It's more of an impulsive thing. Last year, for instance, I was keen on watching the Harry Potter movies (having seen part of one on TV at my parents' place). So, and partially because nobody else felt strongly about it, that's exactly what we did.
There's also the small part where Life is Strange sort of became a mini-movie for my mother and I to enjoy over the course of a week, but I digress.
Others like going the Die Hard route, something I imagine will be a lot more popular as people commiserate Alan Rickman. You could say something similar for David Bowie, but I think people have done those marathons already - and Die Hard is more fitting as a Christmas movie than, say, Labyrinth.
What movies do you like to watch over Christmas?
