The tail end of this year was tough going, so my wife and I wanted a little project to keep us occupied over the cold, dark evenings of a second lockdown - a Christmas picture puzzle seemed the obvious choice. A lot of people are facing a Christmas alone or away from their families, so any little distraction we could provide seemed like a noble cause. These things have been challenging but fun to do, and this one was no exception. We started with a plan for 50 Christmas films, but we really struggled to find that many decent Christmas (or ‘Christmas adjacent’) films to feature. Way too many seasonal films are godawful Hallmark/TV movie fare or soulless Hollywood filler. Forty proved a good number though, and should hopefully provide enough of a challenge.
