While this holiday season may seem slightly different from usual, there are still many ways to continue traditions from years past. One of the easiest ways to get in the spirit is to have a holiday movie night! From the classics to more modern hits, you can’t go wrong if you need a feel-good film. If you’re looking for something to do this weekend, cozy up on the couch with some popcorn or a sweet treat, and have a holiday movie night! Need some inspiration? Check out how you can create the perfect movie night.
Prepare Your Snacks
First and foremost, no movie night is complete without a snack. Since this is a holiday movie night, it’s only right to prep some festive sweet or salty snacks for the occasion. Of course, you can do both! Recipes like this Christmas Crunch Popcorn or this recipe for Sugar Cookie Bites make for the perfect treat. If you want to really get in the spirit, you could even set up a hot chocolate bar! Why not make a little bit of everything? As they say, the more the merrier!
Let there be Light
When we think of watching movies, we envision lights being off to create a movie theater feel. However, for your holiday movie night, create a cozy ambiance! While the overhead lights can be off, perhaps you could string white lights throughout your apartment and light candles. This will create a warm glow, perfect for your movie atmosphere.
Blankets, pillows, fuzzy socks, you name it — it’s time to get cozy! There are few things more relaxing than kicking back on the couch after a long week. For the holiday movie night, make sure to get extra comfy with soft blankets and pillows! Gather on the couch with your family or snuggly fur-baby for your movie night.
Choose Your Movie Line Up
The next order of business is, of course, to choose your movie lineup. Because there are so many options to choose from, it’s best to plan it out ahead of time! If you’re looking for a comedy, movies like Elf, Home Alone, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas are some great options. Or, if you’re leaning more towards romantic comedies, Four Christmases, Holidate, and Love Actually could be your go-to selection. Of course, classics like A Christmas Story, National Lampoon’s Family Vacation, and Miracle on 34th Street certainly never get old. No matter what type of holiday film you’re looking for, you’ll find the perfect lineup!
Last but not least, enjoy your movie, your sweet treats, and your time spent with loved ones. In a year that’s seemed so crazy, now more than ever, we need to stop, relax, and enjoy our time! Your holiday movie night will be the perfect opportunity to wrap up the year on a good note. For more ways to get into the holiday spirit, view our blog HERE.
