As soon as we flip the calendar page from January to February, one significant day of the new month comes to mind. Valentine’s day! The moment we shift into Feb, much like the seemingly overnight decorating for Christmas in November, everything is all red, pink hearts and candy. By the way, why are sweets and chocolate such a significant aspect of all holidays? Well, seeing as it is now officially February and I have yet to enter a store where I can escape hints of this lovey-dovey holiday, I thought why not embrace it? Anyone who knows me knows that I am a sucker for anything that falls into the romance genre, and this run-up to Valentine’s day is the best time to welcome said romance genre into our lives. That being said, what better way to get ready for love than by watching romance/rom-com movies? For all you opposed to these sappy, corny love stories, too bad! Love is in the air, Valentine’s Day is approaching which means that for now, if this isn’t your favourite holiday of the year, you may just have to suck it up and try to dull your anti-valentine’s day urges with vast amounts of chocolate (which is in bountiful supply at the moment). Now that that is done, here are ten romance films to get you ready and in the loving mood for Valentines Day!
In case it wasn’t clear already, what with all the Christmas-related blog posts and the abundance of holiday cheer I’m continually throwing out at all of you, I absolutely adore anything Christmas and movies are no exception. So … I’d like to invite you all to join a little challenge with me: to try and watch every single one of the movies on this list before Christmas. You can do it alone, with your partner or with your family but the goal of this challenge is to get you into the holiday spirit but also to force you to take some time for yourself and just relax with your snuggly blanket. So, without further ado, here is my list of favourite holiday films and my challenge for you to get that Christmas cheer going. Good luck!
