When the weather turns cold and we know the holiday season is among us, our family turns to holiday movies for family movie night! From the all-time classic movies like, “A Christmas Story,” to the romance themed and cartoon comedy options, there is always something that we can find and agree upon. To be honest, in our house, there are a few Christmas movies our children enjoy throughout the entire year. My youngest son absolutely loves, “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” and even has a stuffed character of the Grinch that he keeps on his bed. He will watch all versions of it and even on repeat, if he could! This past year, we found us continuing to watch, “The Christmas Chronicles,” and all of the “Home Alone” releases. They seem to never get old!
