Hello you wonderful people! Hope you’re all well and staying safe. The past couple of days have been very worrisome in my family as my Nan was taken to hospital on Sunday for reasons they’re still unsure about, so my family and I are feeling sad as we can’t be with her due to current restrictions 😟 but we’re hopeful and keeping our fingers crossed that she gets well soon.
To take my mind off from going stir-crazy with worry, and to also get me in the festive mood, I’ve been keeping busy with watching some Christmas films and I thought I would share with you 20 feel good Holiday films (which are in no particular order) on Netflix.
