Baby, it’s cold outside, lights are glowing, bells are ringing and trees are in every window. On a cold winter’s day in December, there is nothing better than cuddling up by the fire with the ones we love, a cup of hot chocolate and Christmas cookies binge-watching your favorite Christmas movies. There is something about rewatching your “Christmas Movie Bucket List” to bring a little more holiday cheer to the season. Yes, most of us have seen some of them so many times we can recite all the lines, but we still watch them every year because of the memories they awaken. Whether its thoughts of a magical time in our youth, or when our kids were young, or a special Christmas we spent with someone we miss, there is nothing that makes you feel more warm and festive than a jolly good holiday flick.
