Yes, I know there’s still a week or so left until the end of 2018, but as most of the bloggers of the Collective will be taking a break for the holidays, I thought I’d share my favorite films from the year (so far), in case you need a watch-list to queue up on Netflix during your vacation. I still have plans to see two or three more films before the end of the year, but they’ll be hard pressed to beat these films from earlier this year! So, gather your Christmas cookies and press play on one of these if you haven’t seen it yet!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year…for cheesy holiday movies. We here at the Collective often indulge in hot cocoa and Hallmark’s best
worst movies to offer us during December. We decided to share a few of our favorites with you, in case you’ve watched The Christmas Prince: Royal Wedding and need another fix of tropey goodness…or, for the more select film watcher, we’ve got some more refined Christmas classics for you to enjoy! So pour the eggnog, grab a snuggie and settle in for Christmas cheer.

With Christmas just one week away, we felt that it was time to start binge-watching our holiday favorites (again). Here’s a list of the ones we love, and why we love them!
Meet Me In St. Louis (1944)
This is the film that gave us “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”, and for that, it’s cemented on my holiday must-watch list. Recced by: The Collectress
It’s a Wonderful Life (1946)
This film is a holiday tradition for many families, mine included. I can think of very few other movies that show how precious every life is, even when that person feels worthless. This is so much more than just a Christmas movie, and it gives me the feels every damn time. Recced by: The Collected Mutineer
Miracle on 34th Street (1947)
So, is the old man really Santa Claus? That’s the mystery of this classic Maureen O’Hara movie. The best part? The movie isn’t even really about Christmas; it’s about having faith in the people around you. Recced by: The Collected Mutineer
White Christmas (1954)
It really isn’t the holiday season until I watch this one with my mother. I’ve seen it at least 50 times, but the more I watch it, the more I love it. (And if you can, also see it on stage. It’s magical) Recced by: The Collectress
It’s the holiday season, which means it’s time to jot down who’s been naughty or nice, but this list isn’t just a catalogue of what you need to buy for others, but a collection of items you might just want to ask Santa for yourself.
