When it’s cold outside, there’s nothing I’d rather do than stay home and watch movies with my family. Sure, going to the theater is fun, but home has a lot of advantages, like bottomless popcorn, free tickets, and a decent chance that someone will get scared and climb onto my lap (I’m a glutton for snuggling).
Plus, I love the way a great movie brings us together as a family. When the kids are watching their shows, it’s too easy for me to wander away and start doing chores or check email. But if we’re making time for a feature film — especially one I’m excited to share with them for the first time — I’m not going anywhere. I wouldn’t want to miss the looks on their faces! So we dim the lights, fire up the hot cocoa, and enjoy two stress-free hours on the couch.
