Check Out New Christmas Movies on Netflix

Netflix has scheduled four amazing Christmas movies for you this holiday. These picks are nice, and they will be helpful if you find it hard to make a choice like I sometimes do.

I am sure movie producers find it hard to make Christmas classics because of the high expectations. While some of the Christmas movies have been a hit in the box office, others were forgotten after a while. However, these storylines may be adapted many years later and remade into new movies.

We are happy Netflix has decided to make a move to preserve our favorite Christmas movies. The streaming platform has repeatedly selected some of the amazing Christmas movies with engaging storylines to be featured at the end of the year. This approach makes the Netflix platform a wonderful addition to every family’s screen entertainment plan during the holidays. The movies Netflix chooses to show are free from obscene language; they also do not advertise unhealthy living options or show people drinking alcoholic beverages.

The Christmas movies are also not so serious. The scenes are somewhat comedic, which can make the viewers laugh and have a great time. They can also be used to set the mood during holiday parties. While Netflix has made this move to give its subscribers awesome Christmas movie options this season, the selection has been made to feature movies many people may not be willing to pay and watch at the cinemas.

He teams up with two young ‘heroes’ to ensure Christmas gifts are delivered to the children.

Dumplin

This is another classic feature starring Jennifer Aniston, Anne Fletcher, Danielle Macdonald, and other awesome stars. It is a nice movie, the performances are spectacular, and you will enjoy the Dolly Parton soundtrack for this movie. One thing that stands out with this movie is the cheerful entertainment that can put smiles on the face of everyone watching the scenes. It is surely a movie to watch on Netflix.

Which Is Better For The Environment? Real or Fake Christmas Trees

We live in times when everyone is concerned about the environment. Every year millions of Christmas trees are purchased and set up in homes as part of the Christmas decoration. It is a long time tradition that won’t go away in a hurry.

However, in a bid to make our actions more environmental friendly many people are considering buying the fake Christmas trees because they believe these trees are more environmentally friendly. Are they really?

The fake Christmas trees are made from plastic, at least 80% of them are, these trees can add to your carbon footprint too. Now imagine millions of people buying the fake Christmas trees, it can become a disaster. We also consider the distance these synthetic Christmas trees have to be transported before reaching your doorstep. That’s a lot of exposure to the environment.

The studies infer that a fake Christmas tree measuring about 6 feet has a carbon footprint of about 40kg. This is evaluated based on the greenhouse emissions from the product. It is quite high when compared to the real trees cut and used as Christmas trees.

While we frown at the fact that so many real trees will be cut and this can affect the forests, it is such a relief to know that these trees can be recycled after Christmas. Fortunately, many communities have special arrangements to collect all used real Christmas trees for recycling after the festive period.

So, we can confidently advise you to consider buying the real Christmas trees. However, there are some things you should look out for during purchase.

First, confirm the real Christmas tree has been grown locally. This is essential because locally grown Christmas trees can be easily delivered within a short time; hence carbon footprint during delivery is reduced.

It is also important to check if it is indicated that the tree you are about to buy can be recycled. The trees are mostly chipped during recycling, so it is an environmentally friendly process.

It would help if you also considered buying a real Christmas tree because they absorb carbon dioxide from your environment and help replenish oxygen. This is a normal process with all plants and a good reason to protect our green environment.

Many artificial Christmas trees have been imported from other countries. This is why buying locally grown Christmas trees comes with peace of mind. You are certain that your tree is fresh and will add value to your environment.

From another perspective, some people claim they can keep their fake Christmas trees and reuse them many times, in the coming years. This is possible, but even if you keep the tree for as long as three or four years, there comes a time when it will be discarded, and that becomes a threat to your environment because it is made from non-biodegradable plastic.

So, this Christmas, consider buying a real Christmas tree. Fortunately, these trees can be purchased from your local stores. You can either buy the potted Christmas trees, which come in different sizes or larger versions. It is also possible to buy and erect a real Christmas tree in front of your home. Bothered about the size? No problems. Simply find the local services that have been set up to collect these trees after the festive period for recycling.

Terrifying Halloween Records to Scare You Silly

As one of the most wonderful yet terrifying times of the year, Halloween brings people together through the ability to scare one another. It’s one of the best ways for you to have some fun and to make people feel a little worried, but it is by no means a reason for you to feel like you cannot have fun at the same time. If you want to make Halloween feel a touch more authentic, though, here are some terrifying Halloween records you will love/hate to read.

The Skeleton Army

Swansea University might be acclaimed as a top quality university, but it’s also a pretty damn scary place. You see, they managed to bring together a whopping 2018 participants to take part in the Jokers’ Masquerade, with everyone dressed up as terrifying as they could to take on the whole street surrounding them.

Once everyone was gathered, they underwent one of the largest “day of the dead” dancing session we have ever seen: truly something to be seen to be believed.

This follows on with the rather terrifying 15,458 people that got together to take part in the Zombie Pub Crawl, Minneapolis in 2014.

Dead Island

Another terrifying place to look is that of what we can only call Chucky Island – real name La Isla de las Munecas. It’s a Mexican island, and on it there are all manner of terrifying items that would make one shudder.

It’s got all manner of decaying dolls strewn around the place, making it feel so eternally haunting upon your arrival. It started in the 1950s, when Don Julian Santana Barrera lived on the island. He claimed to be haunted by a drowned girl, and wanted to appease her spirit by placing dolls on the island as a shrine to her. Yeah. Ironically, Barrera eventually drowned in the same lake she supposedly drowned in.

Lantern of Hell

The largest Jack-o-lantern in the world was rated at a ridiculous 821.23kg back in October 2010. It has yet to be topped, and was carved from the largest and heaviest pumpkin to create an utterly terrifying looking artistic lantern. It’s huge, it looks terrifying evil and it holds all of the hallmarks of nature progression that makes these kind of feats so impressive.

It’s terrifying and awesome in equal measure.

The Famous Scream


Interestingly a famous scream noise known as the Wilhelm Scream has been used in a whopping 133 movies, as well as in numerous games, theme park rides and more. It’s a terrifying sound, and once you hear it you will know exactly what scream we mean. It was used in all manner of old-school horror movies, and has even made it into popular films like Raiders of the Lost Ark and Star Wars.

It holds the record for being the most commonly used sound effect in the movie industry.

With these spooky stats showing you how just prolific and terrifying the industry is, you can now hopefully see that Halloween isn’t just a fat for certain types of people: it’s for everyone. Are you going to take part this year? If so, what are you going as? Where will you be?

You never know: you might about to join another record-breaking celebration of Halloween!

The Worst Thanksgiving Fails and How to Avoid Them

Every year, millions of Americans will be enjoying Thanksgiving as they celebrate this unique American festival. It’s a wonderful experience, one that truly captures the most exciting and heart-warming parts of American life.

Sadly, many people make major mistakes when it comes to making the Thanksgiving dinner – and some of the fails we’re about to list are ones you should definitely try to avoid!

You would be surprised at how many people have had their big Thanksgiving dinner ruined because they just got a little bit too over the top with experimentation or messed u cooking times. What, though, are some of the worst mistakes people have made?

Academic Timing

One of the most common mistakes that people make is being a bit liberal with cooking times. When we throw our Thanksgiving dinner in the oven, we need to pay close attention to how that big beautiful bird is in there cooking. Even a few minutes too long can turn a succulent big piece of bird into a turkey-shaped aubergine.

If you do want to avoid making something that looks like it was dealing with a flamethrower when being ‘cooked’ then be safe about the times and pay attention. It avoids everyone going without their Thanksgiving dinner!

Stuffing Up the Stuffing

Another very common Thanksgiving fail is to go and make the stuffing all wrong. It’s a lot easier to do than you might think, and is a rather special way to just ruin a fine big piece of bird. Many people make the mistake of including far too much stuffing, the wrong kind of stuffing or just not cooking it right.

The wrong kind of stuffing can ruin a piece of meat, so avoid making that mistake when you get the chance. Pro tip: the closer it starts to look like vomit, the less appealing it’s going to be!

Substituting the Meats

When time is short, you might find that the store has no meat left for you to enjoy – so you need to make do and grab something a bit … cheaper. Many people have to make do with what is left in the store when they go to buy their dinner for Thanksgiving – take a look at this image and tell us if you think it looks like Thanksgiving in Alcatraz.

Make sure you get in there fast and buy meat and veg that actually looks like the food it was supposed to be when you bought it. The more processed garbage you can avoid, the better!

Mashing Together the Potatoes

Mash potatoes is a must for any good Thanksgiving dinner, and if you are going to be the host you need to get you mash game down to a T. Take a look at this image above and let us know if that looks like mash potatoes or something much more horrifying.

Make sure you are smart about how you manage your mash; put it in the right kind of bowl and give it plenty of space to be able to sit there properly so people can help themselves.

Basically, when it comes to this year’s Thanksgiving, just make sure your food does NOT look like the above and you should be fine!

Every year, millions of Americans will be enjoying Thanksgiving as they celebrate this unique American festival. It’s a wonderful experience, one that truly captures the most exciting and heart-warming parts of American life.
