Often movies can become part of your holiday tradition. Each year I write my holiday cards while watching some of our favorite holiday shows on TV! Home Alone is a family favorite for April’s family and Masha’s family loves to spin the dreidel and ‘gamble’ their pennies throughout the season.


Whether it’s a family comedy or a romantic yuletide story, settle in and get cozy with some popcorn and a cup of hot cocoa - and relax!
