Fokkit peeps, 2020 fucked us really  hard. This was one of the toughest years for most of us and there is not one person that can brag that he/or she didn’t get affected. We all got hard reality poesklappe and it’s time for this year to end now although it doesn’t mean that  we’re out of the woods yet – a lot of experts reckon the real kak is only going to hit us in 2021. At least a vaccine is pretty much around the corner, so there’s a tiny silver lining for you. Or is it a sliver of a lining?
It is basically Christmas and we’re supposed to celebrate and be happy and eat turkey and gammon and give and receive prezzies. Ja? With what fokken money, huh? One of my tjommies hit the nail on the head on Facebook yesterday:  “The hardest part of Christmas 2020 is going to be selling the story that Santa Claus was involved in a tragic hit-and-run incident on Christmas Eve, but that’s what happens if you do not wear your belt.”
Glad I’m not a kid this year. Shame.
One way to lift the spirits is to klap some Xmas movies. That always makes me feel better and it is virtually free. Look at it this way, if you gooi Showmax with R99, and you only watch these sixteen Xmas movies on my list, you pay like  R6.20 per movie. I think I  paid R7.50 to watch Lion King back in 1994, so that’s ‘n moerse bargain. Genoeg kak gepraat, let’s get Krismissie!
Peppa Pig: Christmas Party Special is obviously for the kids. Or for serious daggarokers. It’s Christmas in the Pig household and everyone is invited for a great big party! Who will show up and what gifts will they bring? And is there a chance we’ll see Santa Claus himself? I don’t know! Tell me! Want more stuff for the kids or the daggarokers? Also try Timmy Time: Timmy’s Christmas Surprise where he and his friends get snowed in at the nursery on Christmas Eve and decide to create their own Christmas right there. Ah sweet, man!
Luckily we’re heading into family fun territory with Arthur Christmas a fun family hit with loads of festive spirit. Christmas has become a laborious operation rather than a joyous time (hello, 2020!) and Santa’s youngest laitie, Arthur, seems to be the only oke who still cares.
Time for some all-time crowd pleasers!
Enter Jim Carey as The Grinch who’s had enough of all this happiness kak, and conspires to steal Christmas from Whoville! C’mon, everyone has seen Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas and we all want to watch it again!
Here is another one all the way from 1987 which you might have seen but deffo would watch again – A Garfield Christmas! Yay! Garfield has to survive a Christmas on the farm with Jon’s family. Everyone on the farm wants to be active and we know Garfield is a lazy fokkertjie! Fortunately there are plenty of naps and good food to help him cope. That’s how the entire December should be – food and naps.
The only movie on the list not suited for kids under 16, is A Bad Moms Christmas with Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, Kathryn Hahn and Susan Sarandon in the story of three under-appreciated women who rebel against the challenges and expectations of organizing Christmas, while hosting and entertaining their own mothers. If you think that’s a mouthful, you should heat the ladies swear!
For some drama and romantic comedies, try these out:
Candy Cane Christmas – Neighbours reckon: “Fuck decorations this year!” Woman searches for a new tradition to lift her holiday spirits.
Christmas Matchmakers – Book publishing company’s Xmas party is around the corner. The editor volunteers to help her boss find a dude.
Christmas Getaway – Travel writer planned a lekker Xmas holiday at a fokken mooi place for her and her bae. He surprise-dumps her. She goes alone.

Christmas on Holly Lane – Three chilhood chommies has fond memories of their friend, Sarah’s pozzie. They re-unite as grootmense to save the house.
Dear Secret Santa – Jennifer the workaholic  a heads to her hometown just before Christmas to help her dad. He fucked himself up while putting up decorations. She starts receiving Christmas cards from a secret admirer. Creeeeepeeeee!
The Last Christmas Home – Megan and her two sisters reunite every Christmas in their childhood home. This year, mom and dad put it up for sale. The buyer is Megan’s childhood crusg, Nash. OH EM GEE!
Last Christmas – Kate is a frustrated Londoner who works as an elf in a year-round Christmas shop. I don’t see her problem? I think being an elf is a fucking cool job! Luckily she meets Tom. Tom is not an elf. Tom is a guy.
Christmas Made to Order – Architect Steven is tasked with hosting his family for Christmas for the first ever. He’s really kak with it, so he brings in the beautiful Gretchen, a professional holiday coordinator, to help. I don’t wanna things this, but I skeem they fall for each other.
