*indicates first time viewing

November 21st
1. Holidate (2020)*
Finally! A cheesy love story with some cursing, vulgarity and humor. Plenty of obstacles to keep you entertained. It's not just one holiday dinner after another. Or should I say supper? I literally just found out that dinner = lunch. Supper = dinner. I'm just as confused as you. I hope.
2. Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey (2020)*
I almost thought I turned on a musical when this movie started. There was a lot of singing and dancing... which I am obsessed with. But don't you fret if musicals aren't your thing! It tapers off and you can join the journey in the usual, non-singing voices.

November 22nd
3. Holiday Home Makeover with Mr. Christmas: Not Your Mother's Christmas! (2020)*
4. Holiday Home Makeover with Mr. Christmas: Small Town, Big Christmas (2020)*
5. Holiday Home Makeover with Mr. Christmas: My Big Fat Italian Christmas (2020)*
6. Holiday Home Makeover with Mr. Christmas: A Tale of Two Holidays (2020)*

There were only 4 episodes and it was a solid reality show that went over holiday decorating tips and tricks while helping families. I think I put maybe 1 idea into my itinerary for Christmas décor. Oh, and the host called himself "butch" at least once per episode depending on his level of physical activity or handyman skills. That's not really noteworthy, I'm just way obsessed with the gay community and the adjectives used.

November 24th
7. Operation Christmas Drop (2020)*
More like Operation Christmas FLOP! Just kidding, it wasn't terrible. It gave me what I crave during this season - festive scenes, music and a love story. I'll throw this one in the pile of other Christmas movies that I won't watch again.
8. Last Christmas (2019)*
I spent a good bit of this film wondering when it was ever going to end and when it did finally end, I was like, "HOLY CRAP IT ALL MAKES SENSE NOW!!!" Very unique story with lots of crying and a few funny moments. Then add equal parts sadness, struggles, self sabotage and a fluffy leopard print jacket. So Christmassy amiright??

November 25th
9. Happiest Season (2020)*
Okay, I loved this rom-com! I am not much of a Kristen Stewart fan (maybe it was all those Twilight movies where she was always so whiny that tainted my opinion), however, I was able to look past that and enjoy the story. Jane was probably my favorite character, she had me LOLing often. Supporting the LGBTQ community was a huge bonus.
10. The Princess Switch: Switched Again (2020)*
Three too many Vanessa Hudgens.
11. Christmas Unwrapped (2020)*
We have all seen this plot done over and over and over again. A female writer is told to study some guy, they fall in love, she decides he's actually a good person and doesn't want to do the story anymore but her boss wants to publish it anyway... blah blah blah you know the rest.
12. Elf (2003)
"You smell like beef and cheese, you don't smell like Santa"

November 26th
13. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (1989)
"Why is the carpet all wet, Todd?!"
"I don't KNOW Margo!"
14. Office Christmas Party (2016)
"Hey God. I know I haven't asked for a lot in this life. Granted, I was born rich.. and white... and a man... and straight. Well, except for that one time in Vegas, but that was Vegas."
