The holidays are filled with different traditions that bring everyone together to make new memories and to celebrate each other’s company. One of those famous traditions is gathering around the TV with your favorite food and beverages and having a holiday movie night. Weather permitting, you can even enjoy these movies outside by the fire pit. It doesn’t get more magical than that.

Set up the Projector

Mini projectors have been gaining popularity, thanks to people using them for movie night and to watch shows without the need for an actual screen to do it. You can buy these projectors anywhere, and they work really well. 

All you have to do is set it up with either a cellphone, laptop, or tablet and find the side of the house to project it on and you’re good to go. However, if the weather is a bit too cold to do this outside, it can work just as well for an inside movie night too.

Pick out the Snacks and Drinks

This may be the most important part of any movie-watching event. The snacks and drinks practically make or break the experience. So make sure you talk with everyone beforehand about what the preferred snacks and drinks are. That way, everyone is happy and can watch the movie without any disappointing snacks or drinks.

Pick Out the Movie

Luckily for you, there is no shortage of holiday movies to enjoy. Do you have kids? Then, Rudolph, the Red Nose Reindeer is always a classic. If you have slightly older kids, then Elf may be a good choice for you. These are great options for any movie night.

If you have adults in attendance, then the Hallmark channel constantly has Holiday movies playing. If you’re in the mood to laugh your holiday socks off, then give The Night Before a try. Regardless of the movie you pick, just make sure you’re having a great time with your loved ones on movie night.

Make Memories by the Fire Pit
