For those who need to switch on their festive mode, or for those who just love this time of year – here are just four of some of the best festive films for this wonderful time of the year.

A Christmas classic that no one can look past this season. It’s got iconic scenes, a bit of romance, a lot of comedy and that inspirational Christmas cheer. It’s everyone’s favorite Christmas movie!

FRED CLAUS
The ending is worth a watch of this movie. You won’t know whether to cry of joy or to let out an “AWWWW”.

Who can say no to fetus Taylor Momson and the hilarity Jim Carrey? Because this movie has all of that, and more.

Friday Night IN!

It’s October, it’s almost Halloween, AND it’s FRIDAY!
It’s costume party season!

BUT…

If you’re anything like me, spending a night at home doesn’t sound too bad after an exhausting week or you got a cold (like me).
So grab a blanket and popcorn, call your pizza delivery dude and let the Friday-Night-Netflix-Binge begin.

To keep in the Halloween theme…

The Craft (1996)
The Craft (1996)
Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
The Awakening (2011)
The Awakening (2011)

The Craft and The Nightmare before Christmas being favorites for me, I’m gonna need a brave partner to watch The Awakening with. So this is what I will be doing. Creepin’ myself out and hiding behind a blanket or pillow with one eye peeking.

If you have any Halloween movie favorites, let us know!

Will you be out and about or staying in? Whatever it is, have fun!

Peace, love, and lots of pizza!
