Hot Chocolate Bar, White Chocolate Peppermint Popcorn & our Christmas Movie Must List

Friday Movie night is not to be messed with in our house! And for the holiday’s we’re having a blast making things extra festive with this white chocolate candy-cane popcorn and our hot cocoa bar.

Once we’ve got all our treats and big soft blankets, everyone cudles up on the couch for a Christmas movie. I’ve made a list of 12 of our favorites, a couple of them are newer. If you haven’t seen Christmas Chronicles yet – our kids loved it. And The Man Who Invested Christmas was my personal favorite new one for us this year (it’s on Amazon Prime right now). I’ll share more about this movie and a Christmas book at the end! 

12 Days of Favorite Christmas Movies

  1. The Holiday **
  2. Little Women
  3. The Christmas Chronicles (Netflix)
  4. Elf  (Best Christmas quotes ever!)
  5. The Man who Invented Christmas (Amazon Prime)
  6. The Christmas Project (Netflix)
  7. Edward Scissorhands **
  8. How the Grinch Stole Christmas 
  9.  A Christmas Story
  10. Home Alone
  11. National Lampoons Christmas Vacation **
  12. The Family Man **

** Not for the younger kids!

And just in case you have any long car rides coming up. We love reading a Christmas book each season. This year we listened to Jacob T. Marley right after watching The Man Who Invented Christmas (on Amazon). The messages of those two stories has really increased the Christmas spirit of giving for all of the kids, I HIGHLY recommend them!! They have been extra inspired to come up with ways to love and serve our neighbors and I’m giving a lot of the credit to these two stories!
