5 fun shows to watch with the family

The holiday season offers us more time to spend with the family. There are several activities the whole gang can do at home: decorate the tree, take a family photo (costumes optional, but recommended), or cook meals together. 

Another fun thing to do at home is to watch season-appropriate shows or movies right before exchanging gifts or having dinner. 

Leading Internet entertainment service, Netflix is several steps ahead of us, as it offers a good mix of fun family titles which mom, dad, ate, kuya, bunso, and even our furry family members will enjoy.
