The streets are almost empty and the Christmas lights lack the smiles they usually wear on their sleeves. And while it's heartbreaking to see people locked inside during a festive season and lack the usual Christmas spirit, one cannot say that this is not what was anticipated. The gloominess is fitting for a year that only saw death, disease, and despair.
But as with all bad things, the year has also come to an end and people are slowly trying to lift their spirits in various ways. Some have already started going out with all the precautions but it's not the same because people are also somewhat scared. The most important Christmas ritual for a lot of people is watching movies with family and friends.

4. The Knight Before Christmas

But life as it turns out is a cruel beast. One day, when she is driving home, she hits a man on the road. The man turns out fine but claims to be a Knight from the medieval era. He says he has been teleported through a magical pendant. But everyone believes that he has lost his mental balance due to the accident and thus Brooke agrees to take him home until he gets his memory back. Things get tricky when they both fall in love with each other. The Knight Before Christmas is a perfect Christmas film to watch with your partner.
