Christmas season is in full swing, and the long-awaited day of celebration is almost here! Every Christmas season, my family and I love to settle in on the couch to watch our favorite classics over and over again on ABC's "25 Days of Christmas". My grandmother and I enjoyed making coffee and watching whatever "Hallmark" original was on cable. This year, however, in an apartment of own, I don't have cable or my grandmother or ABC or Hallmark. Instead, I have my roomie and Netflix. So, this holiday season, my roommate and I have made it our tradition to hunker down in the evenings with Netflix's version of "made-for-tv" Christmas movies, and here are some of the best.

1. “A Christmas Prince.”

"A Christmas Prince" is about a budding journalist named Amber who travels to the foreign kingdom of "Aldovia" to write a story about their soon to be coronated prince, Richard. However, when she takes it upon herself to go undercover within the castle, the whole mission takes a turn, and she finds herself falling in love with Richard. If you're a fan of "The Princess Diaries" this may be a fun watch for you. Overall, it's a really heartwarming movie.

2. “A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding.”

Released a year from it's original, "A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding" is the next chapter in Amber and Richard's story. Amber is trying to figure out where she fits in the world of kings and queens as she and Richard's Christmas wedding is fast approaching. If you love the original, then this is just the right amount of cheesy Christmas movie for you.

3. “The Princess Switch.”

If you were one of the many who loved "High School Musical" then this may be the best option for you this holiday season. Why? Because none other than Vanessa Hudgens is the star! She plays Margaret, a duchess from Belgravia, and Stacy, a young woman from Chicago, who look exactly alike. They end up living a little in one another's lives, and even falling in love with each other's boyfriends.

4. “The Holiday Calendar.”

Missing from the list thus far, is a movie with a little bit of magic, right? As enchantment is often a theme in Christmas movies, that brings us to "The Holiday Calendar". A young photographer named Abby is given a magical advent calendar that seems like it might be able to predict the future. With it, it brings some new opportunities and (of course) a new romance!

5. “Christmas Inheritance.”

A young heiress is vying to inherit her father's business, but she can't until she proves her worthiness. When she's asked to deliver a Christmas card to her father's former business partner, she ends up stranded by a snowstorm. While stuck in the small town of Snow Falls, she starts to learn about herself and the true meaning of Christmas, AND, of course, she starts to fall in love with a local innkeeper.

Christmas is my favorite time of year for a million reasons, and one of the biggest ones is all of the time I get to spend with my loved ones. A large part of that quality time is spent snuggled up watching super cheesy holiday movies. So, if you're like me, settle in with your bestie and a fuzzy blanket and watch your way through this lighthearted list of Netflix originals.

Everyone's been here. And, truthfully, it sucks. But in order to move on and get past something you need to allow yourself to feel it for what it is--all of the heartbreak and pain--and then you can start to take steps move on.

The Christmas season is coming to an end, but it's not too late to get some last-minute movies in! Unfortunately, this year didn't look like a typical Christmas. While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home! Christmas is the best time for nostalgia, and we could all use some warm and fuzzy feelings as we wrap up a tough year and enter a new one that hasn't been proven any calmer, either.

As a kid who grew up in the 2000s, I can think of some of my favorite staple Christmas movies. If you're looking for recommendations or just a walk down memory lane, check out the list below.

As we enter the new year, you might be looking for a great show to kick-off 2021. Look no further, I have the perfect recommendation. "The Wilds" was released on Amazon Prime last month and has been gaining traction steadily since then. This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.

If you aren't convinced yet, allow me to provide you with a list of further persuasion.

Online classes and virtual reality in general have been the staple of 2020. One day in March, everything shut down and we all had to learn how to work, teach, study, do therapy, and take classes remotely without much preparation. So, it's been a roller-coaster experience, and definitely not what we expected.

11 TV Characters Who Are Irritating BEYOND Belief

Maybe they never really did anything seriously wrong, but oh my god they are annoying af.

14350

Have you ever been watching your favorite show, all comfortable and relaxed, and then that one character that you just can't stand pops up on the screen and ruins your mood? I know I certainly have. These characters aren't necessarily evil or horrible people, but they do have personalities that make them incredibly irritating. They're the kind of characters that make you want to yell at the writer, "what the hell were you thinking with this one?" Perhaps they have never hurt a fly, but it doesn't matter since their character just straight-up sucks.

By the way, some of my arguments contain spoilers, so fair warning.
