Netflix Movies to take you through the Holiday Season
The holidays are, if not, the favourite time of the year for everyone. Like, who isn’t looking forward to spending time with family and friends?
After a long hard year of working and trying to make a living, we all want to relax, be taken care of by our loved ones, and do things we feel like doing at our own leisure and time. For some it might be spending time off work with family, others playing games at truebluecasinos in the comfort of their own homes whilst watching a movie. Well, the narrative might be a little different this year. 2020 was supposed to be ‘the golden year’ but no one bargained for the hurdles it brought along. It’s no news that movement was restricted all over the world due to the pandemic. However, thanks to Netflix Inc. people across the world were kept entertained in quarantine. As of October 2020, Netflix was recorded to have over 195 million paid subscriptions worldwide, and about 73 million in the United States. This reason is not far-fetched as Netflix provides people with great movies of diverse genres, documentaries/series, and even animation for kids.
The situation hasn’t really changed much as countries across the world are still taking precautions against the pandemic. Consequently, not everyone might get to be in the same space to do fun things with family. If unfortunately, you can’t do this, cheer up. You can definitely make up for it by entertaining yourself and whomever you get to spend the holidays with good movies on the Netflix platform. Luckily, Netflix is available in almost every country of the world, and with just a subscription, you can get yourself premium entertainment right in your comfort zone! For the holidays, there have currently been new releases of Christmas themed originals from the platform. Isn’t a warm cocktail, dessert, and one curled up on the sofa with a movie playing one of the best forms of entertainment during the festive season?
