What are you planning to do this December?

For most of us, catching a festive flick or two is likely on the agenda for some point throughout the month, so how you would like to get paid to do something you were already planning on doing anyway then?

Well thankfully, there’s a company that’s looking to pay Brits £1,000 to watch Christmas films, all while scranning some snacks.

And we promise it’s not too good to be true.

Sure, it has to be said that there’s been some pretty sought-after jobs knocking around recently, with everything from being paid an actual wage to play Animal Crossing, to becoming a professional wine tasterbinge watching superhero movies, and free trips on holiday with your dog, all catching the eyes of those looking for a suitable side-hustle – but this one, arguably, couldn’t be more perfect for the time of year.
