Great Disney Christmas Ideas (Movies)

Stick on a crazy Christmas jersey and get ready for holiday viewing. It’s almost time to put up the tree, string the lights, and stick the Christmas cookies in the oven. But, it wouldn’t be Christmas without a quirky-themed jersey for each of you and a Disney movie on the TV.

So, which one should you choose?

Since there are, traditionally, 12 days of Christmas, here’s one for each day to keep you busy in between all the turkey, stuffing, and Christmas pudding.
