How soon does your family begin the process of diving deep into Christmas cheer? Do you have a strict after-Thanksgiving only policy or do you put up your Christmas decor as soon as the weather shifts to fall? Or are you the family that somehow, against all odds, manages to wait until Christmas Eve to put up your tree?
Whatever your Christmas-celebrating style is, we’re betting your family has a collection of unique traditions to help you feel festive. Whether you do champagne and sushi on Christmas Eve, watch Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer in your PJs, or drink martinis with the original Miracle on 34th Street, those traditions are important! How many of yours revolve around Christmas entertainment on TV? With Advanced Satellites in Hays, our DirecTV packages can get you set up with TV to bring you every beloved Christmas movie this holiday season. Below are some of our favorites to get you in the spirit!
Keep It Classic
Some of the most beloved Christmas movies don’t come with color, and that’s a-okay in our books. The original Miracle on 34th Street was so beloved they had to remake it in the 90s, and both versions are excellent for bringing that Christmas cheer. Other classic favorites include It’s a Wonderful Life and White Christmas. For those of you who love Bing’s dulcet crooning, try something new and watch Holiday Inn – the movie from which the song White Christmas originated.
Every year, Freeform (formerly ABC Family) runs their “25 Days of Christmas” holiday movie schedule. This includes family favorites like Will Ferrell’s Elf and Tim Allen’s The Santa Clause. This offers a quick and easy way to watch all your family’s favorite holiday movies without the need to sit on the couch for a weekend and marathon them all. Instead, grab your elf hat PJs and cozy up as a family each evening to watch one. This will give you regular family time every night and your kids will love all the Christmas fun!
For the Bigger Kids
If your kids have outgrown enjoying movies like Santa Paws and Disney’s A Christmas Carol (which is a travesty. Do we ever really outgrow the Muppets?), pick a few movies with older tastes to keep your teens interested in Christmas family time. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation is a classic with just enough adult humor – this PG13 movie will keep your older kids entertained without being crass. Also, try Jim Carrey’s The Grinch Who Stole Christmas to help your older kids feel festive.
A Romantic Christmas
Movies like Love Actually and The Holiday offer excellent options for when it’s just you and your other half. If, somehow, you’ve managed to get the kids to go to bed early in the days leading up to Christmas – an impossible task, we know – take the time to watch one of these movies and snuggle on the couch with your honey.
This Christmas, let the entertainment world add to your festive feelings instead of bog you down. No matter what your wants, a DirecTV package from Advanced Satellites can give you all the Christmas movie options you want for a move festive holiday season.
