Picture sitting by a bonfire, there’s a hot little cup of kashmiri chai in your hand, some pretty shawl or chadar laid over you and you're surrounded by people you love -- the moment is perfect. There is no doubt the winter season is full of all kinds of warm and cozy feelings. One of the things that hits the spot in that area is a Holiday themed rom-com that features all of those elements of the season that we know and love. A little fluff never hurts either.
Check out these 8 titles and get both your romance fill and holiday thrill in while enjoying one of these amazing winter drinks suggested by us.
Two completely different homeowners swap homes in order to get a break from their lives for the holiday season and are shocked by their change in love life. The inspired casting and relatable characters ties it together.
A forbidden romance in the 1950’s, Carol is a lush emotional melodrama that reveals the great desire to embrace who you really are at the cost of grave circumstances. A cutting edge film due to its realness and impressive remake of the time period.
Ghost of Girlfriends Past
Here's a different take on the classic tale of A Christmas Carol. Matthew McConaughey’s portrayal of a man haunted by his girlfriends and set on the straight path is hilarious. This is a light hearted Christmas movie that you and your friends would just love.
Even if it has been said before, I’ll say it again. Serendipity is the most underrated holiday romance movie. We follow Jonathan and Sara through a story that rekindles your faith in humanity for a while and you will appreciate every single moment.
Let It Snow
A bit like Dazed and Confused, but then not really. We are still given the interwoven picture of the lives of teens who enjoy a snowy day in a small town and get a little entangled in romance. A feel good film..
The Knight Before Christmas
If you thought the Princess Switch had an unbelievable plot, then this other Vanessa Hudgens flick will blow you away. Filled with magic, characters from the historical middle ages and romance -- you really can’t have a good time watching this movie, even if it is completely absurd.
Sleepless in Seattle
The New York Times described it as "a feather-light romantic comedy" which I can certainly agree with. It is full of tender gentleness. It may not take place exclusively in the holiday season but has earned its place on this list.
Also absurd but in many ways just so emotionally rewarding, this movie features The Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev as someone who is very surprised when she flies to surprise her online love interest for Christmas. Generally good for laughs and exaggerated -- the storyline still doesn’t seem that far fetched.
