It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year for a Movie!

‘Tis the season for all things warm and cozy.  During the holiday season, many of us have been frantically shopping, traveling, and getting together with family and friends. My escape is to take some time to hide away and pop in a great movie. Movies have a way of enveloping us in the warmth and spirit of the holiday season, and when we see the snow falling and fires all aglow, it reminds us how special it can be. Not to mention that it is a great excuse to curl up with a steaming mug of hot chocolate, have some popcorn, and enjoy the weather from inside!

The Mercer County Library System has a great selection of DVDs and Blu-rays you can borrow then feel free to hibernate for a while! Did you know you may also find movies on hoopla?  hoopla is a digital service that MCL provides where you can instantly borrow movies for free with your library card. Check out hoopla here.

Here are a selection of holiday classics, along with some of my personal favorites, that I look forward to watching year after year. They just feel like a warm blanket on a cold winter’s day. All are available through the Mercer County Library System. Go to the catalog page, and simply enter the title to search!

To quote the editors from Refinery 29, a style website for women, “Save yourself the frostbite, pull on those fleece jammies, and enjoy winter through the lens of Hollywood. It's just so much cozier.”
