Fun!! I've seen way too many of these hahah. Would recommend On the 12th Date of Christmas , where app developers competing for a promotion fall in love while working on a Christmas scavenger hunt game (actually pretty good) and No Sleep 'Til Christmas, where two insomniacs can only fall asleep next to one another (so bad it's good). Honorable mentions are Catering Christmas and The Spruces and the Pines.

I was so excited when I saw you'd written about Christmas romcoms! I have also been watching a lot of them this year. I love the feeling of endlessness you get with them, knowing that none of them are likely to be good & indeed that's not really the point. I am trying to remember some to recommend... let's look at Plex for it. The Noel Diary was great, but maybe a little too well done? EXmas was fun (I esp enjoyed their depiction of what a game designer does). Just In Time For Christmas also fun, more time travel shenanigans & also it has Doc Brown in it. I'm excited to watch more of the Christmas in Evergreen series, which leans on the magic to the point that it feels like it could be remade as a horror film? ... I should copy my reviews from a Discord to Letterboxd really, keep track of what i've actually watched.
