We all have our favorite holiday activities. It could be decorating the Christmas tree; baking cookies; gathering with family and friends; or shopping, shopping, shopping. But according to SWNS Digital, a OnePoll survey of 2,000 Americans reveals that our favorite holiday tradition is watching Christmas movies.

Is it really that surprising? I mean, there’s nothing like cozying up on the couch with a comfy blanket, some hot cocoa, a few tasty snacks, and settling in for a heartwarming holiday story on your TV. And depending on the weather, it could become an all-day Christmas movie marathon!
