New Year’s Disney “Days”

My husband and I have a long-standing New Year’s tradition that began during our college years. After a holiday week filled with shopping, family, and birthday celebrations, we’re ready to spend a quiet night in on New Year’s Eve. But really, if a quiet night in is good, two are better. Let me introduce you to the “Days.” The year-end “Days” are an embarrassing display of sloth and gluttony filled with movie-watching and junk food. A theme must first be chosen. It can be a movie genre, an actor, or a made-for-television movie series; the more creative the better. Next, actual days must be selected. Once the movies have been procured (ideally twenty hours or so of play time) and the days have been blocked out on the calendar, a trip to the grocery store is in order. Hot h’orderves are a favorite of ours along with cheese, crackers, and anything else that falls into the category of snack food. Lastly, the furniture must be rearranged for optimal lounging. Pajamas are encouraged, email is discouraged, and the phone must not be answered.

So to get your started on your own Disney “Days”, I thought I would offer up Disney film suggestions for a few different themes.
