Ginger Advent: Redhead-Friendly Films For Christmas

The long break over Christmas and New Year is a time for vegging out to the max.

On TV, DVD and at the cinema, it’s time to sit back, relax, and veg out gloriously to our list of Christmas and feel-good movies starring gingers.

Christmas movies with redheads

Part two of the three-part Hobbit series, this movie sees Evangeline Lilly make her red-haired debut as a dyeing redhead and kick serious butt.
