It’s the holiday season, and with it (hopefully) comes vacation days during which you can go sledding, skiing or just stay at home and drink too much eggnog while watching Netflix. If you opt for the latter (and we certainly are), here are twenty movies that’ll fill you with the holiday spirit when the weather outside is frightful.

I thought we would basically end up with a less fun version of an Ocean’s Eleven sequel, where everyone is putting in the bare minimum before going off to play catch with their kids.
If this past weekend was any indication, if you decide to watch a movie this weekend you might have the theater to yourself. Everyone is so busy trying to get their holiday shopping out of the way no one is making time for flicks.
