TISS THE SEASON: The Jolly Holiday is coming up and the media center is all decorated up!

December is that time of the year for Christmas lights, Christmas trees, hot chocolate, and Christmas movies. 

Christmas is a beloved holiday amongst many, not just because of receiving gifts, but because they are surrounded by family and friends, and reminisce about the memories they’ve made throughout the year.

Many movies are made for this sabbatical to enjoy on a snowy day. Different types of Christmas movies range from comedies, to rom-coms, to family-friendly movies, and many more. 

Many can remember being dressed in Christmas time PJs in their warm homes and getting cookies, as well as drinking hot chocolate, while watching Holiday movies.
