Whether you are heading over the river and through the woods or staying cozy in your home this Christmas, Netflix has something that will add a little joy to your holiday season!
I plan on spending the last week before Christmas baking cookies, finishing up last minute shopping, and snuggling up with my kiddos while watching cheerful flicks. The great thing is no matter if we are out traveling or staying time at home —Netflix is ready to lift our spirits with beloved family favorites! I have been a member of Netflix for years and love the convenience of being able to enjoy movies on the go, especially during the holidays. The service is accessible on tablets and smartphones via the Netflix app as long as you are able to connect to wifi, 3G or 4G, so you have access to a library full of movies at your fingertips wherever you go– just about anywhere, anytime you want to watch them.
Netflix was kind enough to compile a list of a few favorites you can take to Grandma’s this year, including beloved characters like Charlie Brown, Thomas the Tank Engine and Clark Griswold from Christmas Vacation. One of our family favorites we look forward to watching every year on the list is Jingle All the Way! The movie stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sinbad and is absolutely hilarious! It is not a film you would automatically consider Arnold to be in, but is an entertaining treat! The movie is inspired by real-life Christmas toy sell-outs and about two fathers trying to find the hot item (Turbo-Man action figure) in time to make sure it is under the tree for their sons.
