Let’s face it, this year isn’t exactly shaping up to be the best Christmas ever.


If you’re struggling to get into the festive spirit, dreading another Boris broadcast, sick of bad news and stressed out by the very concept of hitting the shops, then this is for you. I would like to invite you to pause, breathe and take a moment to consider what Christmas is really all about.


“It’s Jesus’ birthday”, pipes up my daughter, still dazzled by the novelty of God, who she first met when she started school last year. “No, it’s Santa’s birthday!” roars my three-year-old, very excited but slightly confused by the whole affair.


Good try both of you, but no. What Christmas is in fact all about, is gloriously bad festive films.
