I got so distracted with my big surprise on the blog yesterday that I forgot to post this on Friday. Forgive me? It might be a tad bit late for the start of the 25 Days Of Christmas on Freeform but there’s still PLENTY of time to catch some really dandy family friendly Christmas movies! And… You can always check out Day 1-now online because many are available to stream. So here’s the complete list!

25 Days Of Christmas – Family Friendly Christmas Movies

*Please note that some of these family friendly Christmas movies are PG-13 so may not be appropriate for all family members. I’ve put a notation next to the ones that fit into this category. Use your own discretion and all that. *wink*
