Who doesn’t love family halloween movies?
I can’t think of many things my niece and nephew love more than Friday Movie Nights, and one of our favorite parts of any holiday season is getting to choose from all of the holiday movies out there. As great as new movies may be, there’s no beating the classics that we look forward to year after year.
In recent years we’ve had to update our collection of well-loved VHS tapes and exchange them for DVDs and Blu-Rays so that we can keep watching our old favorites. If you’re in the same boat as us, this post might help you reconnect with these blast-from-the-past movies. Grab a bowl of popcorn and your favorite Rugrats and snuggle up for a night of family halloween movies!
