Holiday season is my favorite, everyone seems to be in better mood, there is ton of new stuff to watch, and catch up on some favorites, and there are threats around all the time. There is no better way to get excited for the holidays than curling up on the couch with the one of these Christmas movies ever:

Original over everything. "Old bitter miser Ebenezer Scrooge is given a chance for redemption when he is haunted by three ghosts on Christmas Eve."

Last Christmas (2019)
