There are Hallmark Holiday movies, classic Christmas movies, and we are craving them now more than ever before. And, the why is obvious, the Pandemic!

With all the stress and uncertainty in our lives, it’s easy to understand why we need them now. 72% of those surveyed said watching holiday movies brings them comfort. 64% said they are looking forward to the holidays more than ever this year.

The website SWNS Digital reported on a survey commissioned by Tubi and conducted by OnePoll. They found that in the past many of us would begin watching Holiday Movies by Thanksgiving or the first of December. But not this year. Many began searching for their favorite Holiday Movie in August, September and this month of October. We're stressed, and we're looking for comfort, and these movies help us escape and relax.
