Radio stations are filling up with Christmas songs, Black Friday is just around the corner and temperatures are dropping further and further: in short, it’s almost Christmas. Netflix celebrates the season with a new Christmas movie almost every week. Today it’s the turn of the romantic The Noel Diary (2022).
