The perfect thing to do over the holidays is throw a Christmas movie night with your friends and family! After following these five steps, you’re guaranteed to make your Christmas movie night one to remember.

Pick a movie ahead of time!

Christmas movies are literally everywhere and easily accessible. “Love Actually,” “Home Alone,” “Jingle All the Way,” “Elf,” “Die Hard,” “Polar Express,” “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” and “Christmas with the Kranks” are great Christmas classics! Be sure to pick your movie ahead of time so that you can enjoy the entire night without the stress of which movie to pick.

Make some hot chocolate!

The best Christmas combination is a movie and hot chocolate. You can find great hot chocolate recipes online, or you can use hot chocolate packets. Either way, hot chocolate topped with marshmallows and whipped cream in your favorite mug is the way to go for the perfect Christmas movie night.

Put on your favorite PJs or Onesie!

To make sure your movie night is absolutely perfect, you need to be comfortable in your favorite PJs or a onesie. If you have friends or family joining you for your movie night, it would be extra fun to wear matching pajamas— or have a competition for the best onesie! Just a little extra fun for a great night ahead!

Put up Christmas lights and decorations!

Christmas lights and decorations are a must for a Christmas movie night! You want your home to look extra comfy and festive for the holidays. You can get great twinkle lights and decor for a decent price on Amazon. It is definitely worth the investment since you can reuse them every year.

Light Christmas Candles!

To add a little more Christmas spirit to your perfect movie night, light some Christmas candles! They always have great sales for candles at Bath & Body Works! Not only will your house look great, it will also smell amazing!

A Christmas movie night is a great way to start off your holiday season with your friends and family! Be sure to follow these steps for the perfect movie night!
