Christmas is here so I advise you run to your nearest Redbox, Netflix or media store to pick up any of these flicks. Regardless if it’s an old favorite or one that’s new, I promise you’ll enjoy it. The important thing is to bring the family together for some laughs, good feelings and to make special memories.

Have a happy, healthy Christmas holiday!
