    In Honor Of "Last Christmas," Here's 7 More Movie Ideas Based On Christmas Songs

    Hey Hollywood, listen up.

    Christmas movie season is officially upon us! Last Christmas, a film inspired by the lyrics of the song "Last Christmas" is out just in time for THIS CHRISTMAS.

    Universal Pictures

    This concept awakened the creative writer in me, and I challenged myself to come up with Christmas movie concepts based only on Christmas songs, so here's what I came up with:

    1. All I Want For Christmas Is You

    Caitlyn has been unlucky in love and has had a crush on Asher from afar for two years. She decides to take part in her office’s Secret Santa, and is gifted a "grow a boyfriend" toy. Wine drunk at home one night, she decides to grow him in a glass of water for a laugh — but instead of growing to toy size, he's a living breathing man…who also happens to be Asher's identical clone. All she wanted for Christmas was HIM, but what will she do now that she kind of has him? Especially when the REAL Asher still exists!

    Lyric inspiration: I just want you for my own, more than you could ever know, make my wish come true, all I want for Christmas is you.

    2. Blue Christmas

    Jason's a window shop painter working overtime during the holiday season — and, you guessed it, he's single. His friend sets him up with this really great guy named Tom, and he's super excited to get to know him better. But right as he's about to leave on their date, a can of SUPER PERMANENT blue paint explodes all over him. No matter what he does, his skin is completely blue — and the manufacturer says it will last three weeks. So Jason decides he absolutely cannot see Tom in person, but continues to come up with unique dates (space museum in astronaut suits! Beekeeping!) to hide his blue skin so he won't miss out on him. Will love conquer all the blues? Or did he totally blue it?

    Lyric inspiration: I'll have a blue Christmas without you/ I'll be so blue just thinking about you.

    3. Let It Snow

    Meghan, who lives and works in Minneapolis, can't wait to get home for the holidays in California. But the night before her flight, a massive snowstorm hits, and it's so strong it breaks one of her windows. Sam, the rude (but admittedly super hot) son of her landlord, begrudgingly comes by to fix the window since no one else is around on such late holiday notice. He fixes it, but just as he's about to leave, the state declares a state of emergency. Suddenly, Meghan and Sam are snowed in with no place to go, and just a fire (and maybe some other sparks) to keep them warm.

    Lyric inspiration: Since we've no place to go, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

    4. Walking In A Winter Wonderland

    Taylor is in a rut. Work sucks. Relationships suck. Her family…yeah, they suck too. While picking out gifts at an eclectic Christmas shop, Taylor is drawn to a gorgeous snow globe in which a "hot Santa" is depicted decorating his house in an idyllic small town. (Dare I say a winter wonderland?) She picks it up, shakes it, mumbles something about how much easier her life would be if she lived there. Next thing she knows, she wakes up living in the wonderland, and immediately starts to fall for hot Santa (his name is actually Greg). But the glass of the globe always lurks from outside, and beside how long can Taylor stay in "wonderland" when reality waits just beyond the globe?

    Lyric inspiration: A beautiful sight. We're happy tonight. Walking in a winter wonderland.

    5. Have a Holly Jolly Christmas

    Kyle and Holly have been best friends since childhood. Holly has always loved Kyle, while Kyle has been completely oblivious! (Stupid Kyle.) Holly's about to tell Kyle how she feels, when he suddenly announces he's head over heels in love — with a woman named Jolly! (Well, Jolie, but all of her friends call her Jolly.) Will it be more of a Holly Christmas, a Jolly Christmas or a big ole' Holly Jolly Christmas mess for Kyle?

    Lyric inspiration: Have a holly jolly Christmas!

    6. Jingle Bells

    Ever since she started her job as a jingle writer at an ad agency, Kate has had her eyes on one thing only: Top prize at the Jingle Bells, only the BIGGEST award show in the advertising industry. She's practically a shoe-in, until a jingle about a new Peppermint Mocha coffee written by her biggest competitor, Maya, goes viral. And, to make matters worse, because of her success, Maya gets hired at Kate's agency. But with Christmas in the air, there's a fine line between hate and love — and that line is exactly one (1) movie montage.

    Lyric inspiration: Jingle bells, jingle bells.

    7. I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus

    When Steph was a little girl, she accidentally stumbled on a big family secret — her real father was the one and only Santa Claus. Santa's not exactly father of the year, but who could blame him? The guy is a bit busy. But as a result, Steph only dates guys who hate Christmas spirit. Enter Craig: The number one Santa fanboy. Craig discovers Steph's parentage, and decides to pursue her — but ends up falling in love along the way. And despite herself, Steph starts to warm up to Christmas and Craig. Was love all Steph needed to thaw her relationship with her dad?

    Lyric inspiration: I saw mommy kissing Santa Claus.
