I had a 50-minute commute last night, from Timisoara, the “capital” of our “state”, to my hometown. It was a late train ride, so everybody was mostly asleep. I had a few minutes to think about the holidays and frankly, for me, the Christmas holidays mean but three things: tea and hot cocoa, eating great food with amazing friends (and drinking wine) and watching my favourite movies of all time.

Ok, there might be more than three things, but hear me out. On the train, I came up with a list of the must see movies for the holiday season. Sure, all of these movies are very famous and you’ve probably seen them.

Yet, there’s something magical about rewatching them on Christmas.

Now, you’ll need more than one day to see everything, so my idea is to watch all of them during the two weeks I’ll be at home for the holidays. I hope you to are having a break and can really enjoy spending time at home with your family. And the following movies:

Harry Potter — I know, I’m 26, I should be married and have 4 kids. Nope. I’m still a little kid who loves Harry Potter. I grew up with the books and it was magical. Then the movies came out and, quite frankly, they were the best movies ever made. Being able to see the magical world on your TV screen was surreal. So yes, you have to see the series this Christmas. You just have to!

Lord of the Rings — The series that I most enjoy watching on the first day of the year. It’s such a great series of three movies, I can’t even start to talk about it. It’s a good interpretation of the books, although not quite, but let’s be honest: the books are always more descriptive.

Chronicles of Narnia — I have never seen this series. Yet, I’m always opened for some new stuff and, since it’s Christmas and the theme is magic and good defeating the bad, I’ll surely give it a try. It must be good!

Home Alone 1&2 — There’s a tradition here in Romania. Every Christmas, the entire series of Home Alone are broadcasted on the most popular TV channel in the country. If you’re not on to see it, you’re probably broken. Everybody watches it, everybody enjoys it and everybody talks about it. Even though everybody has seen these movies every single Christmas of their lives.

Here are the other movies I’ll try and watch this winter: Alice in Wonderland, Lottery Ticket, Jane Austen’s Mafia, The Interview, The Dictator, Aladdin, The Lion King, Jungle Book, The Matrix, The Godfather, The Mask, The Flintstones, Star Wars, Miracle on 34th Street, Bruce Almighty, The Night Before, Harold and Kumar, It’s Wonderful Life, A Christmas Carol.

All right, feel free to make any additions to this list, but let me know about them! Comment below what movies (or TV series) are you planning on rewatching this holiday season?
