The Festive Movie Night!
Not long now guys and gals, 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 upon us. We can taste the roast potatoes, smell our auntie’s perfume, feel the torn wrapping paper in our freshly manicured nails (worth it), oh goodness we’re TOO EXCITED. Perhaps, like us, you’re struggling to sleep pre-25th, or you’re planning a gals night in for Christmas eve festivities, either way nothing beats a chilled-out movie night. Pop the popcorn and pour out the hot choc, here’s how to do a Christmas movie night properly.
Cue the cosiness
When it comes to 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 cosy-night attire to suit your style. For movie binging with the fam, matching onesies are obviously the way to go, slip into a Disney suit, or a magical unicorn and prepare to shriek with laughter (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 essential before major present opening.
...is our favourite time. Sweets, crisps and popcorn, the staple foods of a movie night diet, following your pizza party of course. What sort of a Christmas evening would it be if a sugar buzz wasn’t included? Our Primarket snacks are a total dream, with large sweet jars in fabulous flavours, we’re sure your mum won’t mind if you tuck into the one you bought her… If you’re pacing yourself before the big day, opt for ice cream as a simple snack, then just add chocolate buttons, some chocolate sauce, a little whipped cream…
What to watch?
The never-ending struggle of choosing a movie is made a little easier come Christmas time. With an infinite selection of Christmas movies, our checklist is as follows: cracking festive soundtrack, Santa Claus cameo, and a movie 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’ve got a mighty fine selection of festive films waiting to be chosen for your Christmas eve activities, starting from only £5! 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 properly.
And with that, the countdown continues! By now we suppose Santa’s en route to delivering some rather spectacular gifts to our doorstep, from Harry Potter pjs to adorable motif mugs. Of course it’s not all about the gifts… it’s the Christmas dinner too (ha, we jest); Christmas is a time for bringing together your nearest and dearest, and a movie night is the perfect way to do so. Grab the gang and pop on your festive fave, let’s get chilling!
