How to Host a Holiday Movie Night at Home

The holidays are quickly approaching and for me, it’s truly the most wonderful time of the year. I’m busy planning family get-togethers and thinking about all of our favorite holiday traditions. One of our family holiday traditions is enjoying a night out at the movies with the entire family. We get together to pick our favorite movie and choose the one night when we’re all available. That’s the hard part. My family has now grown to 15 members and now that baby Finley has arrived early, we’re 16 strong.

 Our family is extremely close and the texts have already started arriving. “When are we going to the movie” and “What movie are we going to see” questions are beginning to pour in!

While I enjoy our movie night out, I also love our Holiday Movie Night at Home! I love having the family over and I like being able to pause the movie for a bathroom break.

Holiday Movie Night at Home

When we’re not going out to a movie during the holiday season, I host several holiday movie nights at home. Some of our favorite movies are those we watch every single year and the holidays wouldn’t be the same without them. I admit that I have a good cry during some of the sentimental movies.

Invite the Family

I print out cute invites and hand them out during our weekly Sunday family dinner.

If you have kids at home, place the invites on their pillows just before they awaken for the day. It’s a great surprise and I’m sure you will hear shouts of joy!

Have Everyone Wear Ugly Christmas Sweaters or Favorite Holiday PJ’s

Invite the entire family to wear their ugly Christmas sweaters. Come on, we all have one or two! Give a small prize for the ugliest sweater. Or, have them wear crazy Christmas PJ’s. The family really likes this part!

Stock up on Your Favorite Beverage and Snacks

Before the entire family comes over, I head to Sam’s Club to stock up on snacks and Coca-Cola®!

It’s a good thing Sam’s Club has the Coke® 35 pack! Coca-Cola® pairs perfectly with pecans.

Provide Plenty of Blankets and Pillows

There’s just something about watching holiday movies that require blankets and pillows. My husband thinks I have entirely too many throw pillows, but they sure do come in handy when the entire family comes over to watch holiday movies.
