So here we are! Christmas Holidays are over, but the Winter season is in full swing! When the temperatures outside are below zero (at least in Saint-Petersburg), and the daylight hours are still very short, how can we have fun? Watching movies of course!
The Winter season brings with it a great deal of coziness. To tell you the truth I’m dreaming of the perfect night with a warm blanket, a glass of red wine, and a good movie. And if you're a crazy movie-enthusiast like me you need this list!
My winter movie list features pick both old and new, classic and modern, and I also included different genres- from family and rom-com films to horror and thriller- to spice it up a bit!
So prepare some delicious treats, a warm blanket, maybe light a few candles, and enjoy!
