The holiday season is coming in hot. And you know what that means… ’tis the season if binge-watching corny Rom-Coms until Christmas. And that is one of the upsides of having a significant other during the holiday season- you have someone to snuggle up to on the couch while crying over Hallmark movies. I mean, you can still do that if you’re single, you’ll just be cuddling a pillow instead. But regardless if you’re spending the holidays with a significant other or not, these are the best holiday Rom-Coms you need to squeeze into your movie watching list:
Possibly the most classic holiday movie ever. Love Actually follows the lives of various characters as they navigate through the ups and downs of life, love, and the holidays.
I mean, any movie with Jude Law is going to be amazing. Add Cameron Diaz, Jack Black, and Winslet as star-crossed lovers that might make you believe in the magic of Christmas.
Vince Vaughn and Reece Witherspoon are a hilarious match, and in this iconic movie, you’ll see them navigate the ups and (many) downs of visiting their families for the holidays.
It’s a Wonderful Life
Christmas is not Christmas without watching It’s a Wonderful Life. I also dare you to watch this without shedding a tear.
The Last Holiday
This movie will have you both crying and laughing as you watch Queen Latifah live her last few days to the fullest after she’s diagnosed with a terminal illness.
Ghost of Girlfriends Past
A fun twist on Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, Ghost of Girlfriends Past has always been one of my favorite Christmas movies and is definitely worth a watch.
One of my favorite movies of all time, Serendipity, is the epitome of “right person, wrong time” and follows the lives of two star-crossed lovers throughout ten years and lots of serendipity.
Bridget Jones’s Diary
An all-time classic, Bridget Jones’s Diary is a must-see during the holidays. It’s hilarious, heartwarming, and tear-jerking and perfect for watching snuggled up with your bae.
When Harry Met Sally
This movie brings up the question of: can men and women be platonic? The story follows the ups and downs of friendship between old-time friends Harry and Sally and even includes an iconic Christmas soundtrack.
Any movie with Ryan Reynolds is a movie we want to see. This hilarious Rom-Com takes place during Christmas time when Chris (played by Reynolds) returns to his hometown after ten since losing weight and having a complete makeover.
