It’s barely a few hours to Christmas people! Can you perceive the merriness in the air? Oh, sorry, that was just the aroma of fried chicken and Jollof rice.


I know right? The perfect combo. Do you know what would go well with such a great meal this season? A great movie!

Of course, you may or may not have seen any of the movies on this list earlier in the year or before that, however, there’s just something about watching Christmas-themed movies during the Christmas season.

Without further ado, let’s dive into the Christmas-themed movies we recommend you see this season, and hopefully, you’ll be thanking us afterwards.


Princess Switch: Switched Again

See, there’s nothing you can tell us in this world about this movie that’d make us rethink including it on this list. It’s predictable, a family drama and has a happy ending. Please what more would you want for Christmas.


‘Princess Switch: Switched Again’ follows the life of the now married Princess Stacy and her look-alike friend, Duchess Magaret, as they pursue new adventures.

To understand this movie, you’d have to watch the prequel; ‘Princess Switch’ where the story begins.

In this sequel, Princess Stacy and Duchess Magaret will have to switch again but things will get complicated after Fiona, the duchess’ cousin ruins things.

Vanessa Hudgens maintains her lead role as Princess Stacy, Duchess Magaret, and cousin Fiona.



Think about this; two strangers who are fed up with being single during the holidays decide to become each other’s platonic plus-ones.

Of course, they’ll begin to catch real feelings for each other, and a lot of drama will play out in this romantic comedy.


‘Holidate’ is a perfect movie to watch with friends and or a date but please not for kids under the age of 18.

Watch ‘Holidate’ here.

The Holiday


You know that kind of movie that features a long list of A-list actors. I’m talking stars like Kate Winslet, Cameron Diaz, Jack Black, and Jude Law.

Two girls from two different continents who are going through rough patches in their love lives swap houses to try and heal. They both find love in their new locations.

A great romantic comedy to watch with friends and loved ones.


After carefree Jesper is announced as the worst postman in the Academy, his father ships him off to a small waring town in the north pole.

Jesper is given an ultimatum to build up the postoffice at the town or forfeit his inheritance.

‘Klaus’ is a great family movie for the season.
