Christmas is just around the corner, and one of the best things about it is rewatching our favourite Christmas movies and watching new ones. 

Some of us have done a good job of holding off from watching Christmas movies until now, while some of us have already started the Christmas movie marathon.

If you've already started watching Christmas movies,  you should feel even better since science has found evidence that it is good for your health and may also help you live longer.

Researchers have found that Christmas movies release feel-good hormones.

“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 hormones," they told DoYouRemember.

Watching these festive movies can also help with lowering stress and anxiety levels which is perfect for now as we slowly approach one of the most hectic times of the year. 

Along with promoting positivity and inspiration, they also bring a feeling of nostalgia - reminding you of good times and the magic of Christmas. 

So bring the movies out, or continue watching Christmas movies every night, because it is good for your health.
