I love the holiday season. Decorations at my house go up as soon as Thanksgiving is over, while Christmas music hits the stereo around Halloween. As soon as school is out for me and the kid, we spend much of our time snuggled up in the living room with a fire, fresh baked cookies and a Christmas movie. So, let’s pop a bowl of popcorn, roast a few marshmallows and enjoy a few good films, shall we?

5) Gremlins

I want a Gizmo for Christmas and I cross my hearts I will not feed him after midnight. These mischievous monsters will steal your heart and your car keys in this classic eighties film that just happens to be set at Christmas time.
