At one point or another it was the Twelve Days of Christmas, and during those days you received various gifts, including turtle doves, french hens, ladies dancing, and a partridge in a pear tree. Those days are long gone however and we have other ways of getting into the Christmas spirit, namely: watching movies!

Much like we did for Halloween, we’re going to give you a quick list of awesome movies to get you ready for the holiday season. There are so many amazing Christmas movies, it was difficult to even narrow it down to twelve – The Nightmare Before Christmas has been excluded because we featured it on the Halloween list, however I want to state for the record that it’s one of the my personal favourites and you should totally watch it anyway!

Alas, it is now December and you’ve little time to waste, so let’s get on with our list. Here are twelve awesome Christmas movies you should watch this season!
