The holiday season surrounding Christmas really lends itself to some stellar movie watching time. It’s not a coincidence that many big releases come out the Friday before, or on Christmas day. However, when it comes to movie-watching over the holiday season, from Thanksgiving to Hanukkah to Christmas, Festivus, Kwanza and New Years, the best place to watch movies is at home, on the couch, snuggled up with a beverage of choice. Here are some great flicks to put on your list!
2001’s Serendipity is one of the most criminally underrated romantic films of the 2000’s let alone of the most underrated holiday films of all. The film stars John Cusack as Jonathan Trager and Kate Beckinsale as Sara Thomas, two strangers who meet while Christmas shopping for their significant others. Although the film spans several years and changes in the two characters’ lives, the whole thing begins and ends at Christmas, making it a holiday must-watch.
