When the holiday season is in full-swing, sometimes you’re forced to choose between a good holiday book or a holiday movie. With these twelve films, you’ll get the joys of the book it was based on as well as the cinematic experience that will take you away for 90-120 minutes.
Pop some popcorn, brew up some hot chocolate, and settle in for these 12 holiday movies adapted from books. Each of these movies is available across different platforms and subscriptions. I recommend searching “watch TITLE” and deciding which is the best way to tune in based on your existing subscriptions.
