Holiday Romance

Almost every holiday movie has a dash of romance. Holidate, which is now streaming, follows two strangers who hate the holidays: Sloane (Emma Roberts) and Jackson (Luke Bracey). When these two strangers meet one particularly bad Christmas, they make a pact to be each other's "holidate" for every festive occasion throughout the next year.

Operation Christmas Drop (now streaming) follows Congressional aide Erica Miller (Kat Graham), who flies to an island military base in order to determine whether the good deeds they're doing for the people of 56 different islands is worth the cost. She meets Captain Andrew Jantz (Alexander Ludwig), who is assigned the task of showing her around. You know what happens next, but you got to watch to find out.

A cute new teen series, Dash & Lily (now streaming) is a whirlwind holiday romance between cynical Dash (Austin Abrams) and optimistic Lily (Midori Francis), who exchange notes in a notebook they pass back and forth at locations all across New York City.

Did you watch The Princess Switch? If so, get ready for not two, but three doses of Vanessa Hudgens as she returns in the sequel The Princess Switch: Switched Again (Nov 19). When Duchess Margaret (Hudgens) unexpectedly inherits the throne to Montenaro and hits a rough patch with boyfriend Kevin, it's up to her double, Princess Stacy of Belgravia (Hudgens) to get these star-crossed lovers back together. Oh and a certain cousin complicates things with her arrival. Sounds fun!

Home for Christmas is another love-centered holiday series and the single ladies and gentlemen can surely relate to this one. Season one premiered last year and season two streams in December. This comedy series follows 30-year-old Johanne (Ida Elise Broch), who has been perpetually single and her relationship status is always a topic of discussion at family dinners. During one family get-together, she lies about having a boyfriend and so goes on a 24-day hunt to bring a boyfriend home for Christmas.

Spreading Holiday Cheer

Besides romance, there are holiday-themed films and series that teach us important lessons. They bring us closer together while spreading holiday cheer. Isn't that what the season is all about? Here to remind us about what truly matters is some cheerful, joyful content.
