If you’re anything like me, you can sometimes be over-whelmed by the gluttony of holiday-themed entertainment that’s available this time of the year. It’s so bad that after Christmas shopping this past weekend, if I never hear “that” Mariah Carey song again for the rest of my life it still might be too soon.
But hey, that doesn’t mean I’m a Grinch around the holidays. There are always some great programs available that my family love to watch on an annual basis. And now, as my Christmas gift to you, I want to give you a chance to win SIX MONTHS of FREE NETFLIX (details below) while also providing you with one of my favourite Christmas recipes, along with some of my personal favourite holiday-centric programs that are currently available on Netflix.
First off…I thought I’d share a great recipe that my awesome wife makes for the family around the holidays: chocolate-peanut butter fudge! Total prep time is just over an hour and it’s a SUPER easy recipe that anyone can make! I’ve created a separate post that has all of the details. Trust me…you’ll thank me when it’s all said and done (and your family will, too!!).
Secondly, there are some great titles on Netflix that my family will watch that I’d like to recommend for your family (if you haven’t watched them already)…
How the Grinch Stole Christmas
I fully realize that there is a large group of Dr. Seuss fans who prefer the original cartoon classic over the Jim Carrey remake. I gotta say, though…I absolutely love this version! I think the acting is kitchy and fun, the make-up is incredibly faithful to the book, and the genius of Jim Carrey cannot be denied. This is one of the few movies of his career that fully demonstrate just how incredibly original and entertaining he can be (when he wants).
Jingle All The Way
It’s a Christmas movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger…how can you go wrong? What happens when a desperate dad has to match wits with a sleazy Santa, a stressed-out mailman, and a horde of parents just so he can procure the hottest new toy around on Christmas Eve? Well…you get a pretty entertaining holiday movie!
To me, this is one of the more under-rated animated films that revolve around the big man in red. This 2011 film is a story about how Santa Claus must entrust his son, Arthur, to carry out an ultra-important Christmas mission. It basically gives an updated look at what Santa must probably have to do in order to REALLY travel around the world delivering toys in one night, and I know my son loved it when he watched it the first time.
My wife and I have already watched all ten seasons on a two-month marathon session (seriously), but the one holiday episode I remember the most is from Season 7, Episode 10…titled “The One With The Holiday Armadillo”. The great thing about Netflix is that you can search through all ten seasons to find that one episode you’re looking for. It’s great having that convenience.
These are my holiday favourites…do you have any that are on Netflix? Sound off in the comment section below or on social media…I’m certainly open to finding a new favourite for the family to enjoy!
