Everyone has their favorite Christmas movies when the holidays arrive. Whether it’s Jimmy Stewart discovering the zest for life or Bruce Willis blowing up terrorists, the season offers a variety of cinematic options to get into the Christmas spirit.
Those of us at Industrial Media thought it would be appropriate to create 12 Days of Christmas inspired and eloquently titled 12 Christmas Movies (with a crafting angle).
Some of them may not qualify as “Christmas” movies in the traditional sense, but we couldn’t afford to be too critical. However, whether it directly shifts the plot or is present for a fleeting moment, the fabrication is there.
