Best Christmas Romantic Comedies ♥️

After February and Valentine-time, holidays are considered the most romantic time of the year. Maybe it’s because people feel more affectionate in this season and show their love to each other more prominently. Or maybe it’s because of all those numerous romantic films, that make us believe in love. Especially during Christmastime.

Most people (including me) have a love-hate relationship with rom coms. On one hand they’re so cliché, repetitive and predictable. Some even feel absolutely unrealistic, even though portray our real world. But on the other hand, we still can’t help but watch and even rewatch them, considering these films as our comfort movies. I guess that’s because subconsciously we all want to keep believing in love, in magic and miracles no matter what. And not the kind of magic that showed in fantasy movies (like Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter, where we obviously know that this is fantasy and not real), but the ones that happen with ordinary people in ordinary life. Because in this case we hope that there’s a teeny tiny possibility, that the same may happen in our lives.

Festive romantic comedies are even more magical. Most of the storylines happen either in a very cozy small town, with little cobblestone streets, colorful houses, Christmas markets and friendly people all around, or in the “center of Christmas” – New York, which looks absolutely incredible. There’s always snow falling, lots of festive and fun activities involved. And things are portrayed in such a way, that we truly believe that these events are more than possible. Even if that moment only lasts for one evening. Christmas is all about positivity and believing in things that are unknowns and invisible to our eyes. It’s about hope, love and kind hearts. And that’s what these movies can provide.

So, for this post I decided to share some of my most favorite Christmas romantic comedies. Some of them are old, others recent, famous and not so. Hope you’ll find a new recommendation and have a very lovely cozy festive night, watching a good movie.

  1. “…these events are more than possible.” Actually, EVERY movie requires a suspension of disbelief at some point, unless they are true stories like biographies or documentaries. However, believing that love conquers all obstacles is not fantasy. And when we follow Jesus, we will find He can bring into our life whoever or whatever will be most fulfilling.
    “I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.” Jesus, Matthew 10:10
    Wishing you the merriest of Christmases ever, and that you will find Jesus’ love leading you into fulfilling love relationships with family and friends… and maybe someone special. 😉

    • I don’t blindly believe in anything I see in movies (even biographies, because they also sometimes make some things up to make the story more epic), but I do love to dream believing in every impossible thing. thanks a lot! I also wish you a very happy holidays season! 😄✨

  2. I have watched most of the films on your list. Their plot is very banal, but they are still pleasantly watchable. Maybe the reason is that in these films there is some kind of warmth, soulfulness, which we all need. Thanks for the good selection❤👍

  3. Thanks for the suggestions. I’ve only seen 4 of them.
    Love Hard is hilarious and fun to watch. Or maybe it was the way I watched it; under three blankets with some vanilla ice cream 😋
