Make a New Holiday Tradition with Netflix


A family tradition my family has done every year since I can remember is sitting down on boxing day and watching a movie while eating turkey sandwiches, celery, pickled beets and tea with the fireplace going.   As a matter of fact, I look forward to boxing day just a little more than Christmas.  

I wasn’t too surprised to read a survey from Netflix showing that 58% of households with children watch movies together during the holiday.  The top holiday traditions among Canadian families according to the survey include dinners, cooking, baking and shopping, watching TV and movies together.  I think it is safe to say that Canadian holiday traditions are changing as families are curling up to watch movies together during the holiday season.

β€œThe holidays can be a stressful time for Canadian bank accounts and it’s hard to find a great gift for under $10.  At just $8 a month for unlimited TV and movies, gifting a Netflix subscription provides great value for gift-givers weary of going into the red this holiday season.” –  Jerry Kowal, Director of Content at Netflix.

  4. I have not yet seen ‘Crazy Stupid Love’ yet so I would like to see that, for my husband and I of course as I don’t think it is a movie for children. I would let my son pick the family movie for all of us.

  5. Visited Netflix and I would watch with my family over the holidays from their selection is “Turtle: The Incredible Journey”

  6. Other than Children’s movies, lots of their Drama and Thriller selections, and I’d like to see ‘This Means War’ from their Comedies.

  7. Love the Walking Dead comment above, haha!
    I would take a night off and watch Lucky Number Slevin with my fella. No kids, no noise, just the two of us! *sigh* Imagine?? If not, probably A Christmas Story. Hahaha!

  8. My family’s most favorite Christmas movies to watch (but they’re not on netflix ironically lol) is Christmas Story, National Lapoon’s Christmas Vacation (LOVE this one! it’s so funny) Scrooged [with Bill Murray] and the Gremlins!
    Never fails, every year we watch those order LOL
    With lots of food, cuddles/snuggles and LAUGHS <3

  10. We bought a zoo would be great, I’ve heard its an amazing movie. The kids would be thrilled to have netflix and choose what they want to watch, when they want.

  11. It would be nice getting netflix for a few months. Santa paws and Christmas puppy look like 2 cute movies we would enjoy watching. Thanks for having this contest.
