Christmas and the holidays in general are a very tough period for singles. It is estimated that some 22% more singles get hitched during these end of year festivities. Most of these relationships formed to beat the so-called ‘holiday blues’ are not lasting.

But from a single’s point of view, it is understandable, days alone are depressing when it’s cold and dark outside and TV is blasting Christmas movies which are, admittedly, mostly watched by girls.

One of this year’s Christmas hits is Netflix’s own ‘A Christmas Prince’. Having read about it in the paper a week ago, I proposed it to the missus at home as I felt guilty having monopolized the TV to watch WWII documentaries the weekend before.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Watching &quot;A Christmas Prince&quot; on Netflix as my first Hallmark-esque romcom watch of the szn.

I scored some points because I can ensure everyone that this is a woman’s favorite. Handsome prince about to become king, wintry setting, lonely girl, make-over, you can pretty much guess how it’s going to end 5 minute in, but okay.

Netflix itself has also noticed the popularity of the film featuring ‘Prince Richard’ and felt compelled to reach out to the people who have been binge watching it: “To the 53 people who've watched A Christmas Prince every day for the past 18 days: Who hurt you?”

Some users did not see the funny side and were even a bit surprised that Netflix was acting like big brother, but most did see the hilariousness of the tweet.
