I'm feeling extra santa-mental this year.

9 Movies To Add To Your November Netflix Queue To Get Into The Holiday Spirit

It's November, so that means that the holidays are inching ever so closer! I'm already prepared to bundle up in blankets and get into the holiday spirit. Like always, there has been a ton of newly released Christmas movies, but there are also movies of Christmas past that I'm ready to watch again. Whether it's new rom-coms, older classics, or animated fantasies, it's time to add some holiday movies to your Netflix queue.

1. "Holidate"

Holidate is a new holiday film from Netflix this year. It's a romantic-comedy and holiday movie to the extreme, since it hits on holidays year-round (I'm talking Valentine's Day and St. Patrick's Day, too). The plot's nothing new, as it revolves around two people fake-dating to ward off expectations, but it's still a fun movie. The main characters (with their chemistry and somewhat excessive cursing) are entertaining to watch. If you enjoy other Christmas rom-coms, you'll probably enjoy this one too.

2. "This Christmas"

This Christmas is a homey movie to remind you of your extended family when you can't visit them this year. This 2007 movie centers around a family that hasn't seen each other in years. Each of the almost dozen family members has tons of secrets and drama to pass around as they relearn how to celebrate Christmas together. This movie stars Chris Brown, Regina King, and Idris Elba among other talented actors. If you enjoy family movies or sit-coms, you'll definitely enjoy This Christmas.

3. "How the Grinch Stole Christmas"

This holiday classic based on the Dr. Seuss book is amusing, whimsical, and nostalgic. The 2000's-style special effects and costumes add a sense of comedy to the lovable plot. This is a perfect feel-good watch with your family or friends to get into the spirit of Christmas. Plus, the Grinch gets bonus points for having a cute dog.

4. "The Grinch"

This 2018 adaptation to the same Dr. Seuss book is delightful. This version has enough differences from the 2000 version to make it at least worth a watch this year. The Grinch is animated rather than live-action and it includes Benedict Cumberbatch as the Grinch in a modified, more believable storyline. Coincidentally, this movie also features a cute dog.

5. "Let it Snow"

Let It Snow is a typical teen rom-com for fans of movies like To All the Boys I Loved Before and The Kissing Booth. This book adaptation about a snowed-in town full of intertwined characters, each involved in their own love stories. The talented cast includes Mitchell Hope, Kiernan Shipka, and Jacob Batalon. This is the perfect movie to watch with friends when you're snowed-in - or any other time this month.

6. "The Princess Switch"

The Princess Switch is perfect for fans of Vanessa Hudgens. This 2018 movie combines many different (and amazing) ideas: baking competitions, (not actually) twin hijinks, and the holidays. This Christmas rom-com is definitely very cliche but still fun to watch. If you've already watched The Princess Switch, the sequel is being released on November 19th, where Vanessa Hudgens actually plays three characters.

7. "The Holiday Calendar"

The Holiday Calendar is a heartwarming rom-com that is exceptionally well-balanced. Abby is a photographer with a job she doesn't enjoy. She receives an advent calendar from her grandfather that points her in the right direction. The cast is diverse and the movie is equally dramatic and romantic. This movie is perfect for anyone looking for a quality romantic comedy with a love of family.

8. "Klaus"

If you're a fan of animated movies and shows, you'll enjoy Klaus. This family-oriented movie is a heartfelt origin story for Santa Claus centered around a postman on a far-off island. With beautiful animation, a detailed story, and an amazing soundtrack, this Academy Award-nominated movie is worth a watch before Christmas rolls around.

9. "Sugar Rush Christmas"

Sugar Rush Christmas is not actually a movie, but I had to tack on this delightful and delicious show onto the end of this list. This is a reality show where bakers make Christmas-inspired treats in hopes of the cash prize. This show is for any Christmas-lovers who also love baking or cooking competitions. The next season is coming out later this month!

These are some of the best Christmas movies on Netflix, and they're ready to be added to your queue!

Let me just say, first and foremost, happy Thanksgiving! This holiday is known as a time for families to get together, to be thankful for the blessings in our lives, and to dig into a lot of very delicious food that you'll be having as leftovers for the next week. However, this family time is certainly not without downsides, as we are forced to confront certain family members on matters that should best be left out of Thanksgiving discussion, and in my case, this happens to be my father, who is the only republican in our family (that I know of).

(FYI: Since I still live with my dad, it's not just Thanksgiving when I'm forced to listen to him talk about politics, as I had gotten a taste of where he stands just from earlier this year alone.)

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.


If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.

Oh so this was the room where I snuck cookies upstairs past my bedtime and stole R-Rated movies to watch when my parents were asleep and now I'm expected to earn my degree in this very same room?

November is such an underrated month. With all the excitement that comes with Halloween ending and the holiday season around the corner, some people skip over it and go straight to their Christmas playlist. For me though, November is the perfect time to compile a playlist of songs that bring on major nostalgia which I think is perfect for this time of year. If you're looking for something to get you in that thankful spirit before you head into the Christmas spirit or something to play while you enjoy Friendsgiving, here are some go-to songs to add to your November playlist.
