Okay, they're cheesy and predictable, but there's kind of nothing like wrapping presents at midnight, while watching a feel-good Christmas movie where a jaded journalist travels to a snowy land and either meets Santa--or a prince! Snacking on chocolate-covered peppermint "jo-jos" helps too.Read More
