With the colder weather starting to creep in and storefronts beginning to put up their festive displays, it's clear the holiday season is rapidly approaching. In the year 2020, of course, Americans are eager for just about anything worth celebrating, so many people are gearing up for the holly, jolly season earlier than usual and that means watching a holiday movie or two. After running through all of the worthwhile options on Netflix, you may find yourself reaching for a classic before it's even December.
