I love Christmas movies. All kinds of Christmas movies. Color. Black & white. Religious. Secular. Live action. Animated. Romantic. Silly. I have certain ones that I have to watch every year. And for the most part, they’re all quite traditional. Christmas is the theme. It influences the people and advances the story.
But in the last couple of years, I’ve started adding a few other films to my list of annual viewing. Movies that skirt around the edges of Christmas. They may be set during the season or the holidays may provide a turning point in the story. Perhaps even driving home a point we didn’t even notice until the end of the movie. But one that stays with us.
