Starting this Sunday, put on a Christmas movie (or movies) each day and get yourself ready to deck the halls, spread joy and spend time with family.


South Africa – Starting on Sunday, you can officially sing/hum Christmas carols in public, put your tree up and decorate your home without offending anyone. It is officially the day the grinches of the world can go get their stockings stuffed.

It marks the first day of the very best 25 days of the year! If you haven’t noticed yet, the Christmas Spirit is strong in the Good Things Guy office. We love the festive season, it brings the very best out in people. It is the one time of year where everyone feels the same kind of excitement and spread joy to those around them.

Everything comes in an advent these days, gone are the days where you popped a simple misshaped, practically melted bit of chocolate out a numbered door, now you get gin, beers, candles, beauty products and more in advent calendars. This inspired us to do an advent style post.

We want to share 25 must-see (or rewatch) movies leading up to Christmas morning. These movies are all designed to make you feel super festive. They are not listed in any particular order so pick and chose as you feel and enjoy your Christmas movie lead-up to the 25th.

These movies will start popping up on all available channels, keep an eye out on DSTV, Netflix, Showmax and whichever other services you use. If we know which platform they can be found we will list that too
