I kept the tradition of watching as many of the New Christmas Movies available, as i did in 2012, and here is what I thought (in general last year’s movies were so much better than this years!). I’m keeping the verdicts short and sweet:
- A must Watch for all
- Watch if you love Christmas Movies
- Predictable & Nice
- Predictable & Naughty
- Do not waste your time
