It is the weekend, you want to sit down on the couch with your kids and watch a classic family Christmas movie, and then your realize that you have no idea where to actually find your favourites.

This happens to us all the time. With so many streaming services, it takes some time to figure out where to stream our favourites. Sometimes even with a subscription to Netflix, Disney+, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, etc, we end up renting the movie to be able to watch it right away. Does this ever happen to you?

So, friends, I am writing this post to let you know where you can watch all your favourites. I’ll list them by streaming service so you can access them easily.
