According to a new survey from Netflix, over half (58 per cent) of households with children reported that they watch movies together during the holidays. Along with Holiday dinners, cooking, baking and shopping, watching TV and movies together is a new holiday tradition!
I have to nod my head ‘YES’ to that statement, watching movies together during the holidays especially is just as frequent as many of the other traditions that take place during the season.
I can’t imagine a holiday flick NOT playing in the background while we bake, or visit with family on Christmas Eve. In fact, just last weekend we set up the tree while watching ‘Elf’ on Netflix. It’s always our kids’ ‘duty’ to pick something on Netflix while I get out all the decorations from under the stairs. Just as the movie was finishing, so were we in our decorating. Then, we lit the fire and chose another movie to relax to, while admiring the newly decorated tree and drinking hot chocolate. It really was the perfect day.
