The day after Christmas, host a film festival curated by your guests. Gather around noon—dress code is low-glamour—everyone brings at least one DVD, picks a spot on the sectional, chair or floor pillow and it’s theirs all day. Brunch, lunch and dinner happen between movies—which are voted on only when the previous one ends.
Plan ahead and have plenty of logs for the fire, pillows and throws handy so everyone can curl up comfortably—not to mention positioning the sofa with all the best views of the flat screen. After a month or more of dressing up, traveling, shopping, cooking, wrapping…relax and enjoy the show!
