Tis the Season for holiday movies! Netflix, coming off the success of its movies from previous years including The Christmas Prince (which frankly checked the box for every cheesy and twinkling detail we crave in a holiday movie) is providing us with yet even more this year. The number one movie I plan on seeing is Holiday in the Wild. Right off the bat the title does not conjure up snow and mistletoe, but it's got Kristin Davis (Sex and the City and Deck the Halls) and Rob Lowe (who needs no intro with that chiseled mug) in it, so that's a definite yes for me. I don't even have to know what it's about or even if it's filmed where there is no snow (it is), I'll watch it just because they are in it.

Wild for Christmas is an original new movie for Netflix. Another new Netflix original this season is Let it Snow, about a snowstorm wreaking havoc on a bunch of teens. Beware when searching there are lots of Christmas movies titled Let it Snow, including one of my favorites on Hallmark featuring Candace Cameron Bure). Speaking of snow problems and kids that reminds me of the classic Snow

Titles include A Holiday Engagement (from Hallmark), Christmas Crush, Dear Santa (from Lifetime), The Christmas Candle, Elliott the Littlest Reindeer, Christmas Break-in and Christmas in the Heartland and Santa Girl (new, for kids).
