I’m writing this because I ran into a problem searching for my favorite Christmas movies. A problem you’ve probably run into as well. You want to know where you can stream your favorite Christmas movies. So you search it. You click on one of the articles, and after you get assaulted with all their ads, you realize it was written last year. Most of the movies aren’t where they say they are. So I’m fixing this.

Today is November 27th, 2022 and here’s where to stream Christmas movies

I’m not going to guess, or rely on someone else. I’m going to tell you exactly where you can find the movies you want. Because things on the internet stay up forever, if you’re reading this in 2023, hit the back arrow. Or swipe left, or whatever you’re doing in the future to get out of an article. If you’re seeing this in 2023 it’s likely that many of these movies will be on different apps. If you’re still streaming apps in the future. MAYBE they’re beaming the movies straight to your brain. In your self driving flying car.

If I’m missing something, or somehow I messed up, find me on the contact page. Also, I don’t mention Amazon or Hulu very often. I got rid of those apps because they annoy me. Any time you’d find something you’d want to watch, well now it costs extra. I pay for your app and you provide me with links to buy the things I want to watch? Nope. I’m out.

So let’s get into the holiday spirit with a Christmas movie. Even if you live in South Florida and it’s 85 degrees. I turned the air down to 73 and made some hot cocoa to get in the spirit

And yes, since it’s my list,  Die Hard is a Christmas movie.
