2020 has undoubtedly set many new records. We’ve all probably smashed our personal records for the most hours spent at home in a week or the amount of times you’ve washed your hands in one day.
After adding up the amount of seasonal films watched during Christmases past, it might come as no surprise that during the year that we all needed a little extra cheer, one last record has snuck in: 2020 broke the record for the amount of Christmas films I watched.
This year was a 35:65 split of rewatches and first time views with 20 films in total. I watched the first film on 7 November, but last year I watched my first film on 5 November so 2019 still holds that record.
