As I mentioned in my Halloween post, growing up, my sister and I got super excited about any themed holiday programming. Especially during winter holiday time, many TV channels would have special line ups for the entire month of December, sometimes even into January, with a plethora of classic holiday movies and shows mixed in with new movies and shows with special episodes or new original content for the upcoming holiday. We recently found ourselves missing that scheduled programming. I cut the cord long ago and all though many streaming services have “hubs” or special lists for holiday content, it doesn’t feel the same as having scheduled and planned content for the holiday. So, this year, my sister and I decided to make our own “cord cutter’s” schedules for the upcoming holidays. We started a couple of months ago with The Cord Cutter’s 31 Days of Halloween. That went smashingly so we decided to continue with The Cord Cutter’s 31 Days of Christmas for December! It’s packed full with 31 days of holiday movies from various streaming services, one for each day of the month of December.
Why Should I Care about Cord Cutter’s 31 Days of Christmas?
People seem more geared up for the winter holidays this year than any year before. We need any happiness we can manufacture this year! This list may help you and your family and friends get excited about the upcoming holidays, especially if you may not be able to take part in your normal traditions this year. If you are separated from family and friends at the moment, take time to watch these movies cozied up with your household members on the couch or while decorating for the holidays. Maybe have a watch party or outdoor private screening of these with outdoor heaters or fire pits going to spend some safe time with them! Everyone can bring their own chairs, blankets, and individually package popcorn and snacks!
The schedule includes movies and TV shows that are available on Netflix, Disney+, and Amazon Prime streaming services. (I couldn’t really find much winter holiday content on Hulu). If you don’t have access to one of those, feel free to swap out for shows or movies on streaming services that you do have, watch with a friend that does have them, or try a free trial! Just don’t forget to set a reminder on your calendar or phone assistant to cancel before the free trial is over if you don’t have room in the budget for a new streaming service at the moment. (Especially with our holiday spending. Is anyone else’s budget not looking so great from over-ordering? Or is that just me?)
