Netflix and eggnog with an extra dash of nutmeg while sitting on the couch with your loved ones or by yourself, sounds like a great recipe for self-care during the holiday season. There are many holiday season classics that repeat on cable networks but how about on the streaming channels such as Netflix? Although Disney+ has become the newest channel to take over everyone’s bandwidth, Netflix is the channel that we have, along with Hulu and our cable network. Each of them will give you a healthy dose of holiday season movies to lounge on the couch to watch.If you can’t find your favorite egg nog in the neighborhood supermarkets, how about trying to create a homemade version with your family. Take a look at some of the cultural egg nog recipes that I’ve found out about. Whether a homemade batch or a store brand of eggnog is a perfect beverage with leftover holiday season desserts and a cheesy holiday movie. So here are a few shows that I see that are new and interesting for us to watch during these upcoming weekends.

Wow, Netflix really has a lot of holiday movies. I don’t have Disney+, either. Thanks for these suggestions. I’ll probably sign up for AppleTV+ next month; they have some good series & movies on there, too.
