Raise your hand if you aren’t into those sappy Hallmark Lifetime Christmas movies. I personally can’t deal with them. They’re literally all the same. I prefer holiday comedies to help get me through the season. You already know I hate the Christmas season so, yeah I need all the laughter I can get around this time of the year.

Since there are 12 days until Christmas here are 12 holiday comedies movies to watch every night of the week leading up to Christmas Eve.
