Here are a few titles we thought we’d highlight for you to enjoy this season!

You can find the following titles by visiting

It’s a Wonderful Life (1946)

“Strange, isn't it? Each man's life touches so many other lives. When he isn't around he leaves an awful hole, doesn't he?”

If you haven’t watched this beloved holiday favorite in a while, then this year is the year to do it. Follow George Bailey, a young businessman who has become increasingly discouraged with life, as he gets a chance from an angel named Clarence to see what life would be like if he had never even existed.

A Christmas Prince (2017)

“Who are you, and what are you doing in my palace?”

A Christmas Prince is the perfect film for those who love made-for-tv holiday feel-goods. When Amber, a reporter, goes undercover to get all the secret details about Prince Richard, she ends up getting caught up in the middle of some royal drama and she even falls in love. The question is, will she succeed at now blowing her cover? Find this on Netflix!

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation (1989)

“Hey Griswold. Where do you think you’re gonna put a tree that big?”

While it may be best to watch this movie after the kids go to bed, it will have you laughing up a storm. Clark Griswold wants to have the perfect holiday season with his family, but from the very beginning, things don’t go quite as planned. Mishaps include holiday decoration disasters, an unexpected visit from hick cousin Eddie, and a revoking of a much-needed holiday bonus.

The Grinch (2018)

This holiday season, Hollywood is bringing you a computer-animated adaptation of Dr. Seuss’s holiday classic How The Grinch Stole Christmas! Join the Grinch and his dog Max as our favorite green grump tries to steal anything that points to the holidays in the cheer-filled town of Whoville. You’re sure to meet Cindy Lou Who along the way, an innocent little girl who crosses paths with the Grinch as she’s just trying to meet Santa.
