Hands down, my favorite part of the holiday season is the movie watching. Amidst the hustle and bustle of shopping and parties and preschool sing-a-longs, it’s wonderful to hit the pause button and collapse into a pile of fuzzy blankets to watch something festive.

Bonus points if you can do it as the snow falls and you twirl a candy cane in your hot cocoa. Maybe while sitting near a roaring fire? Too much?

PSH. It’s the holidays! No such thing as too much when it comes to cocoa and a warm fire.

Lucky for all of us, Freeform (formerly ABC Family) is kicking off the ‘25 Days of Christmas’ programming on December 1st!
