One of my favorite holiday traditions has always been family movie night. Every Christmas Eve, my family gets together at my house and we all get brand new Christmas PJs. We wear these while we gather in the living room and huddle around the TV to watch our annual Christmas movie.


We usually opt for the classic National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation (my dad’s personal favorite!). But I’ve been thinking we need to switch it up, so I’ve made a list of some of my favorites. A great idea would be to write the names down on pieces of paper and draw one out of a hat! I wonder which one it will be this year.
