Meine zehn liebsten Weihnachtsfilme

24. Dezember 2014 at 3:15



Ich muss zugeben, die wenigsten Vertreter auf dieser Liste sind klassische Weihnachtsfilme. Eigentlich erfüllt keiner dieser zehn Filme die erforderlichen Kriterien, aber es machte verdammt viel Spaß, diese Liste zusammenzustellen, und jeden einzelnen von ihnen sehe ich immer wieder gerne, einige auch traditionell jedes Jahr zu Weihnachten. Ich wünsche euch viel Spass mit dieser Liste der etwas anderen Art und natürlich auch schöne Feiertage!
