The hubs and I have been enjoying some fun romantic Christmas movies this December for our date nights. I hope you enjoy them. They are clean and sweet.
Christmas in Vermont is about a young up and coming female executive who gets sent to shut down a factory in Vermont, by her boss, played by Chevy Chase, which makes me laugh. Is this his first serious role ever? He plays a pig-headed, crusty CEO. Morgan Fairchild also appears a few times as the mother of the male lead. It’s sweet and clean and reaffirms your faith in humanity and small towns. You can rent the whole thing on YouTube here.
The Rooftop Christmas Tree features a female attorney who leaves a big firm to move back to her hometown before Christmas. She finds out how to help her neighbor who has a run-in with a city ordinance because he puts a Christmas tree on his roof. The ending is a bit unbelievable but I’ll look over that because of the theme of family togetherness.
The Most Wonderful Time of the Year, starring Henry Winkler, is my favorite of the bunch. We watched it on Amazon Prime Video last night but it’s also on YouTube so I posted it above. It is a hilarious story of a young single mom who has a high-powered career but has been unlucky in love. Her uncle, played by Winkler, comes to visit for Christmas and helps her find love. I laughed out loud several times during this. It is such a charming, clean, romantic, funny movie that it puts a grin on your face in the end. The female lead, Brooke Burns, is gorgeous, and the male lead, Warren Christie, is very handsome, so that makes it fun to watch as well. The movie raises questions to discuss like:
“What makes a perfect Christmas?”
“What makes a ‘nice guy’?”
“Can you really tell if a stranger is a bad character just by being around the person for a few minutes?”
“What can I do to make Christmas less stressful so I don’t say to myself, ‘I can’t wait for Christmas to be over’?”
“Is it possible to fall in love with someone after knowing that someone for just a few days?”
