The holiday season is in full effect, meaning it’s time to admire Christmas lights, go ice skating, and bake about a billion cookies.
What about those nights, where it’s way too cold to go out? Then fill up a cup of hot cocoa, cuddle up with that special someone, and watch a romantic holiday flick that television networks will air for just about the entire month.
Here are five romantic films to watch that will make your holiday season even brighter:
