For many families, Christmas movie nights are a fun tradition. After a long day of shopping or celebrating, it’s relaxing to curl up on the sofa, snuggle under thick blankets, and watch a nice movie. Here are 4 ways to create cozy nights with your favorite films.

1. Turn on the Christmas Tree Lights

The soft glow of tree lights lends a magical feeling, especially at night. Ashley of Nashville Wife Styles loves watching Christmas films with her kids throughout the season, and her pre-lit tree adds a festive touch to the experience.

2. Wear comfortable clothes

Dress warmly for the chilly nights in your favorite sleepwear, flannel pants, a knit sweater, or anything you feel comfortable in. Better yet, get into the holiday mood by wearing something Christmas-themed like fun socks, a t-shirt, or onesie. Here, Ashley wears comfy Christmas pajamas for a night in with her family.

3. Make a movie list

From classic animation to romance to family comedies, there are many different types of holiday movies to choose from. Watch one a night counting down to Christmas, or let each family member pick a film and make it a marathon. If you’re looking for new viewing fare, Hallmark Channel offers a line-up of original movies. Among the heartwarming stories to catch this season are Christmas Joy, Christmas on Honeysuckle Lane, and A Shoe Addict’s Christmas.

4. Don’t forget the snacks and hot cocoa

 Prepare popcorn, chips, pizza, hot cocoa, apple cider, or other comfort food and drinks that your family loves. Snacking and sipping make the experience even more relaxing. You can add in some seasonal flair by using Christmas mugs or bowls.
