The Man Who Invented Christmas (2017)

The Man Who Invented Christmas is part biopic, part retelling of A Christmas Carol. It follows Dickens as he comes up with the story – but publishers, wives and meddling characters help and hinder him along the way.

It’s an unexpected take on a grand old tradition, with Downton Abbey’s Dan Stevens stepping in as Charles Dickens.

It’s not really a musical, but the hot chocolate number is every bit as sweet and heart-warming as a real mug of cocoa. Grab a mug, a dressing gown and a sleigh bell and you’re good to go!
