3. Falling for Christmas (2022)

Falling for Christmas (2022)

Lindsay Lohan plays a privileged hotel heiress in this 2022 movie who wakes up after a skiing accident with no memory and is taken into the care of a gorgeous widower and his daughter before Christmas comes.

The holiday romance industry was founded on the silliness and frothy fun of Falling for Christmas. You won’t miss much without pausing if you use the restroom, get a refill, or get more wrapping paper. Trope-laden and chock-full of snappy one-liners.

It perfectly illustrates why you should watch a Christmas movie more for the spectacle – or lack thereof – than for the story itself. It is what you would anticipate, which is an enjoyable time.

4. The Noel Diary (2022)

The Noel Diary (2022)

This film, from the creator of Father of the Bride, follows bestselling novelist Jake Turner as he unearths a diary that could reveal details about him and Rachel, an attractive lady he met in the past. The story by Richard Paul Evans served as the basis for the movie.

It resembles a road trip love story between two strangers who share the same biological parents. They are looking for information about their past. However, the movie is firmly a drama, and the early life death of a character’s sibling won’t be for everyone. 

There is more than enough romance and infrequent jokes. The Noel Diary contains all you need if you want to sob into your cocoa.
