This may the perfect weekend with nasty weather coming our way to cuddle up on the sofa with some blankets a hot beverage and some popcorn and other goodies and watch some of your favorite Christmas movies to get you into the spirit.

A new study of the world's favorite Christmas movies has discovered that of ALL the classics the top holiday movie in Germany is: The 2019 romantic comedy "Last Christmas".

The trailor for this movie looks pretty good and I may have to pick that as a one to watch for me this weekend.

And the second-most popular in Germany and France is "Gremlins". (Yes, it's a Christmas movie. Especially if "Die Hard" is.)

They didn't actually conduct surveys around the world. Instead, they looked at Internet search data in 18 different countries . . . so it's possible the Germans were obsessively researching "Last Christmas", for some reason.

The most searched movie in the U.S. was "The Nightmare Before Christmas", which was also #1 in Italy. (Even though the director claims it's a Halloween movie.)

"Elf" and "Love Actually" were #1 in FIVE countries each"Gremlins" was the most-searched in two countries, Brazil and France

"Home Alone" was also #1 in two, Singapore and United Arab Emirates. That is one my hubby Scott downloaded to watch this weekend.

No OLD Christmas classics made the Top Three in any of the 18 countries which I always have to watch it seems like using search results skewed toward the more recent movies.

But with everything going on in everyone's lives with the pandemic, social distancing and so on this should be a must-watch. "It's a Wonderful Life"

Hit up this link to see the TOP THREE in each of the 18 countries. Number Two in the U.S. was "Elf", followed by the 2018 KURT RUSSELL comedy, "The Christmas Chronicles"

And number two of the Christmas Chronicles.

Both of these are showing on Netflix.
