Holiday Movie List 2023

It's been a long while, but I'd like to get back to some personal writing and sharing about our life through Molly and Jack's tween/teen years (with their permission). 

Each November, we create a list with the kids of Christmas movies and holiday specials to watch with the kids and alone, just the adults. Nowadays, the kids watch almost everything we do (with a few exceptions). Below is a list of holiday-themed content we've been watching and plan to watch over the next few weeks. I've put an X beside some new ones we've tried for the first time this year that weren't very good and won't be watched again and a tree beside items as we watch them.

If you have any suggestions, please provide them!
