My All-Time Favorite Christmas Movies



If I’m being completely honest, movies are half the reason why I look forward to December every year; there’s nothing like settling down with your family after a long day, munching on a few holiday sweets, and watching your favorite Christmas classics. So, without further ado, here are my favorites:
