Am întrebat săptămânile trecute pe Facebook care-s filmele de Crăciun la care se uită prietenii mei virtuali sau reali. Lista mi s-a părut complexă și foarte diversă, așadar, până aranjez ce-i acolo, m-am gândit să pregătesc o listă cu filme de Crăciun din 2016 care au ca temă Crăciunul. Sper că n-am uitat nimic.
p.s.: Hallmark are o colecție impresionantă de filme de Crăciun, doar că-i puțin cam prea mult sirop.
p.s.2: să-mi fie scuzată lenea de a traduce în limba română descrierile filmelor.
p.s.3: ajutați-mă să completez lista, vine vacanța 🙂
