The Festive Movie Night
Not much longer, kiddos – before you know it, you’ll be closing those eyes, ready to wake up to a pug puppy (oops – did we ruin the surprise?). Christmas is basically here. We can just taste the roasted potatoes, smell our great-auntie’s perfume, feel the ripped wrapping paper in our freshly manicured nails (worth it!), OMG, we are TOO excited! Maybe like us, you’re struggling to sleep pre-25th, or you’re planning a girls' night in for Christmas eve fun – either way, nothing beats a chilled-out movie night. Pop the popcorn and pour the hot choc, here’s how to do a Christmas movie night right.
Cue the cozy
Whether snapping those girl #squad Insta pics or family get-togethers for your grandma’s first Facebook post, it’s essential to be wearing your fave pjs. Fluffy and fun or seriously chic, Primark has every cozy-night piece to suit your style. For movie binging with the fam, matching onesies are obvs the way to go: slip into a Disney or magical unicorn suit, and get ready to ROFL (grandad in a onesie? It needs to happen). Snuggle into your softest sheets or squeeze into "your spot" on the sofa and chill; rest is a must before major present-opening.
...is our fave time. Candy, chips and popcorn, the staple foods of a movie night diet – following your pizza party of course. What kind of Christmas would it be without a sugar buzz? Our Primarket snacks are a total dream – with big candy jars in fab flavors, we’re sure your mom won’t mind if you just dip into the one you bought her… Pacing yourself before the big day? Go for ice cream for a simple snack, then just add chocolate chips, some chocolate sauce, a little whipped cream…
What to watch?
The movie-choice argument is made a little easier at Christmas. With an endless list of Christmas movie picks, our checklist is as follows: awesome holiday soundtrack, Santa Claus cameo, and a story sure to please the whole fam. Whether The Grinch takes your movie night top-spot, or you keep it sweet with a Disney classic, we have a fab choice of festive flicks just waiting to be chosen for your Christmas eve film fest, starting at just $X! So long as you’re the perfect blend of chilled and 150% over-the-top excited (the feeling does exist), you’re doing movie night right.
And with that, the countdown continues! By now we guess Santa’s on the way to deliver some seriously spectacular gifts to our doorstep, from Harry Potter pj's to adorable motif mugs. Of course,it’s not all about the gifts… it’s about the dinner (ha!) – Christmas is a time for bringing together your nearest and dearest, and a movie night is the perfect way to do that. Grab the gang and pop on your festive fave, let’s get chilling!
