It's halfway through November and my All Wrapped Up Series.  Today, I'm sort of taking a break from the gift guides to do something purely for fun.  Winter is a great time to "stay in and cuddle" (Olaf) with a Christmas movie!  Below, you'll find 10 favorite Christmas movies with lots of ideas for having your own family date night.  In all the bustle of the season, take some time for relaxing with the people you love the most.

Elf is my all-time favorite Christmas movie.  It's funny, it's heartwarming, and it's an adoption movie!  There are so many great quotes from the script that it takes on a life outside of the screen.

My kids love the Polar Express movie!  I am not sure what they find so appealing.  Maybe it's the train or the nighttime adventure or the north pole?  They would be so happy if we did a Hot Chocolate Family Date Night.

This is another one of my favorite movies, but my kids have never seen it!  I'm not sure they're quite old enough, but I'm anxious for them to see it.  The movie answers every kid's fantasy- that your father is Santa Claus.

Ok, so Frozen isn't really a Christmas movie, but, it's set in a snow-covered land.  It feels like a good winter movie, especially for families who don't celebrate Christmas.  If you're not completely sick of it, surprise your kids with a fun, snowflake filled movie night.

Another classic movie for all ages!  Charlie Brown continues to be a favorite within our culture, so it's easy to find ideas, recipes, and products for it.  Plus, the movie is short, which fits perfectly with the sometimes short attention spans of kids.

The first Narnia movie isn't really a Christmas movie, either.  However, it always makes me think of this time of year since the characters bemoan that it's "Always winter and never Christmas!"  Oh, and St. Nicholas appears to give the children battle presents.  If it's been awhile since you've watched this classic, imaginative adventure, start planning your family date night!

- Book and Movie Night
- Charm Bracelet
- Learning Activities for Kids
- Schleich Lion
- Tea with Mr Tumnus
- Medieval Goblet



As I was putting together this list, I decided that it would be neat to have printable movie tickets for the family date nights.  Print off as many as you need, perhaps to announce the movie night in your child's lunch or slip them into a party invitation.  May you have many family memories this Christmas season!
