Yes, I’ve been binge watching Christmas movies. In my defense, they started at midnight and kept going until midnight. I had to show how much I approved by tuning in. Hey, some folks watch sports. I watch Christmas movies.
Even though many of the tropes are the same, it’s the feel-good payoff at the end that keeps me watching.
But it also raises questions.
Like the one where the day repeats, over and over again until the main character learns her lesson and finally the calendar resets.
We get it; we’ve all watched the movies. The most famous being Groundhog Day.
The same storyline has shown up in Christmas movies. Which begs the question, what happens when the timeline resets? I mean, some of those characters must have spent months if not years learning those lessons.
So how is the missing time accounted for? Do they age during those repeating days? Or is it a kind of stasis where time stands still and those used days come off at the end of the character’s life?
It’s okay, I’m gonna finish my eggnog and return to the movie marathon.
Until next time.
