Holiday Movie Favorites

We are all nestled in our homes enjoying the holiday sights, smells, and sounds.   Holiday decorations are glistening by the fire, the smell of Christmas cookies coming out of the oven, and, of course, it’s not the holidays without holiday movies!  

There’s something magical about cuddling up by the fire and watching holiday movies.   For a lot of us, it brings back memories of watching with parents, siblings, or children while anxiously awaiting the arrival of Santa.   If you like traditional and heartwarming classics or legendary films like Home Alone, here is a little glimpse of cinematic history.   Twenty of our favorite movies ever for this time of the year and a few keywords to jog that memory.
