Get The Maximum Out of Christmas Holidays

Christmas is coming. And while we all love holiday fairs and skating rinks, often it is better to stay at home and enjoy some time with those we love. If you also like spending time at home, watching movies or playing table games, you will definitely need a few fresh ideas on how to occupy yourself, while others will be waiting in traffic jams or freezing on central squares.

Watch Netflix premiers

The first, and probably the most popular idea is watching premiers on Netflix. Just grab some snacks, make yourself a mug of cinnamon coffee and watch Christmas movies and series Netflix has in store for the 2019-2020 holiday season: A Christmas Prince: The Royal Baby, Home for Christmas, Let it Snow, Klaus, The Knight Before Christmas, and much more! If you want to watch something not related to Christmas and holidays, Netflix has got you covered with such December premiers like V-Wars with Ian Somerhalder, Marriage Story with Scarlett Johansson, and of course The Two Popes with Anthony Hopkins. Sounds like you won’t have time to be bored!

Don’t miss The Witcher and Star Wars

In case you are obsessed with movies and TV series and find the above list is not enough, we have some good news for you: there is another episode of Star Wars (The Rise of Skywalker) coming in December! But make sure to switch off your phone’s notifications to truly enjoy the movie. And don’t share your snacks!

Frozen II is another premier that you can’t miss, especially if you love cartoons or have children. If you want something darker, don’t miss the Netflix premiere of The Witcher. It is by right considered The Games of Thrones’ competitor! By the way, you still have some time to read the original book to compare it with the TV series.

Those of you who love classical literature, have surely been waiting for Little Women film adaptation. Guess what? It will hit the screens in a few months! And of course, we won’t do without Charlie’s Angels, who will continue kicking asses of bad guys already in November.

Play your favorite online and video games

Now, when all the premiers are seen and you can literally retell dialogs without any mistakes, it is the right time to switch to more dynamic leisure: playing computer and online games. What we like about them is that you don’t need to go anywhere to feel the adrenaline rushing through your veins!

If you love classical shooters, you probably know that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has been released in October. For those who prefer lighter games, a full-fledged Pokemon Sword and Switched is launched by Nintendo. You will no longer have to run around the streets and catch pokemon!

In case you prefer online casino games, you can always pick Christmas slots with free spins and without deposit charging, and join the millions of gamblers worldwide! Just make sure you have enough time for all the amazing games that are waiting for you.
If you think that the above games are not enough, there are plenty of premiers for the most sophisticated players. Let’s start by mentioning Death Stranding, a post-metal gear game that will simply blow your mind. Hideo Kojima says that his game is a reaction to ‘’Brexit and Trump’s wall’, and we can say that the protest turned out great!

You can also enjoy the Untitled Goose Game, where any player turns into a goose that ruins everyone’s lives. The success of this game is rather understandable because you can become a comedian and stand against people of the whole town doing mischief with impunity! Millions of people worldwide fell in love with the Untitled Goose Game and we surely need more Indie games to brighten up Christmas days!
The last but not the least is Ori and the Will of the Wisps, a sequel to 2015 Ori and the Blind Forest, which knocked out gamers across the world! There are only a few months left before the release date, so you have some time to make up excuses for why you won’t be able to leave your home for several weeks.

Have fun without leaving your house

We are blessed to have the Internet, so there is no longer a need to go anywhere for Christmas. You can watch Netflix premiers, book adaptations, play casino games or turn into a jerk goose and annoy townspeople (a perfect scenario for introverts). So make a list and spend the best Christmas ever!
