The holidays can be a crazy time. All the lunches, dinners, markets, parties, concerts, and of course shopping can be a lot to handle on top of your regular workday and social activities! But it doesn’t have to be that way. Promise. The holidays can be a completely stress-free and enjoyable time, by being selective about which functions you attend (and making the absolute most out of them), shopping smart online with Yroo, and setting aside some down time to balance out all the excitement.
That’s why we’ve planned the perfect holiday movie night so you can kick back, relax, and watch your favorite Christmas classics!
Making the most out of your night dedicated to YOU means doing a bit of planning. Don’t worry, it will be well worth it so you don’t have anything to do but unwind and laugh your head off at Clark Griswold’s antics. Pick an evening that works with your schedule, get all the drinks and munchies in the days beforehand, and picture the evening in your mind. Do you want a nice fluffy blanket? Do you need to pick up a couple of candles? Do you need firewood? And most importantly, what movie(s) are you going to watch?
Here are some of the most beloved holiday movies:
The Bishop’s Wife
A Charlie Brown Christmas
Christmas in Connecticut
A Christmas Story
The Family Man
It’s a Wonderful Life
Jingle All the Way
The Little Drummer Boy
Miracle on 34th Street
The Muppet Christmas Carol
National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
Olive, the Other Reindeer
The Polar Express
Santa Claus is Coming to Town
The Shop Around the Corner
The Santa Clause
Once you know what you’re going to watch and you’ve got the perfect evening booked for you, it’s time to think about drinks and munchies!
Some gourmet hot chocolate flavors to try: marshmallow, cinnamon, vanilla, salted caramel, hazelnut, fresh mint, candy cane (use one as a stir stick), orange (use zest), peanut butter, or Bailey’s Irish cream.
The taste of Christmas.
Mulled wine. Game changer.
Stove-popped, air-popped, caramel, marshmallow, chocolate drizzled, rosemary, the possibilities are endless!
Cheese or chocolate.
Meat and cheese forever. A substantial snack to go with your mulled wine.
We all scream for ice cream.
Now you’ve got everything in order and all you have to do is look forward to a night to yourself, with friends, with family, your other half, or your pet.
Happy Holiday Movie Night!
