Planning your Perfect Holiday Movie Night

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:
