Back on Thanksgiving weekend I asked a question on the Just Jilly Facebook page that was honestly one of the most popular posts I have ever written over there! I simply asked what your favorite holiday movie was.
In case you are dying to know, mine are Elf, the original Grinch and It’s a Wonderful Life. Since we gave up cable and rarely watch network TV due to a pretty pathetic antenna, I don’t catch all the holiday movies as easily as I used to. Thankfully, we own Elf and the Grinch. I think this year I’m going to have to add It’s A Wonderful Life to the mix because it simply isn’t Christmas without it.
I am so very thankful Netflix has a great holiday line up to get me through the holiday season. Some are old favorites (LOVE ACTUALLY!!) but others are new. We had a family movie night last Sunday and giggled our way through Merry Madagascar and a few other Dreamworks holiday originals.
Speaking of Madagascar, get ready for a new Netflix original series debuting Dec. 19th starring some of your favorite characters from the movie franchise. All Hail King Julien follows King Julien and his loyal sidekicks Maurice and Mort on crazy jungle adventures. I think Silas is really going to love it! And if you can’t wait until the 19th maybe Merry Madagascar, Madly Madagascar or The Madagascar Penguins: A Christmas Caper can tide you over.
