Weird World: Watching Christmas films no matter the season, is healthy

Christmas season is fast approaching and if you like watching Christmas movies, there’s a good chance your festive film binges are doing wonders for your health.


According to a report by The Mirror, we’re actually being encouraged to watch Christmas movies all year round to give a boost to our ‘feel-good’ hormones which come with snuggling down and turning on movies like ‘Home Alone’.

A psychologist has revealed that these films have been proven to help people live longer and healthier lives. Discussing the benefits of Christmas films, the psychologist said: “It does create that neurological shift that can produce happiness.

“I think anything that takes us out of our normal habituation, the normal day in, day out, signals our senses, and then our senses measure if it’s pleasing or not. Christmas decorating will spike dopamine, a feel-good hormone.”
As well as bringing us some much-needed festive cheer, it can also help reduce levels of stress and anxiety.

Watching Christmas movies with someone else can even strengthen your relationship, including anyone from a love interest to a family member.

The nostalgia which comes with the films can bring people together due to the focus on family values and close bonds.

So don’t ever let anyone tell you that you can’t watch Christmas films all year round. Science says yes.
