Is there anything better than hibernating on a weekend and watching holiday movies?
Here at our household, we make a whole thing of it. With holiday cocktails and lots of snacks, we’re always down for a movie marathon. Here are a few flicks that we can’t wait to watch this December.
It’s a Wonderful Life (1946)
Could this perhaps be the most classic holiday Christmas movie of all time? It’s filmed with nostalgia, compassionate capitalism undertones, and of course, a feel-good ending.
Favorite Quote: “Every time a bell rings, an angel gets his wings.”
Available to stream on Prime Video.
The Holiday (2007)
This rom-com has everything we need in a holiday movie: quirky humor, spaghetti alfredo, instant romances, and cross-continental travel. And if you don’t celebrate Christmas, it’s not riddled with Santa Claus and carols.
Favorite Quote: “Iris, if you were a melody… I used only the good notes.”
Available to stream on Prime Video, Apple TV+, Disney+.
Groundhog’s Day (1993)
This winter gem of a movie hits all of the classic themes: growth, good deeds, and redemption. Sure, it’s set a few months after the holiday season, but it still fits the mood.
Favorite Quote: “I like to see a man of advancing years throw caution to the wind. It’s inspiring in a way.”
Available to stream on Prime Video and FuboTV.
The Family Stone (2006)
Family dynamics during the holidays? Oh yeah. With Diane Keaton as the head of a family of six and Rachel McAdams as the testy sister, there’s so much to love about this snowy, New England holiday movie.
Favorite Quote: “You have a freak flag. You just don’t fly it.”
Available to stream on Netflix and Disney+.
