25 Days of Christmas Family Movies


Christmas and the holidays are super hectic for everyone. Doesn’t is seem like about two weeks before Thanksgiving all the way through New Year you just don’t get a break? And, even worse, it’s hard to get the family to slow down and enjoy some time together without the stress of wondering what is coming next on the schedule.

Enter family movie night.

Family movies are great together down time because everyone has to be in one room and there’s no phones or gadgets because everyone is trying to take pay attention to the movie. To help your family get some together time for the holiday season, I’ve put together a “25 Days of Christmas Movies” list. The great think about today is that you don’t have to buy movies. (Of course, we still buy and keep our favorites!) Instead, you can watch them free online or rent them online through places like Amazon Prime.

FROM OUR SISTER SITE: 25 Days of Christmas Activities

You may not make it through 25 whole days of movies during the holidays, but I encourage to try to make time for as many family movie nights as you can during this time. Mix it up and introduce your kids to some of your favorite classics from when you were a kid and then watch an animated movie the next night. Or, take turns letting each person in the family pick a movie for the night!
