With the ease of watching movies in your own home, there should be no reason to brave the elements, drag the kids out in the cold, and run the chance of finding that slick spot on the road. This is the time of year that everybody wants to stay home where it’s nice and warm and comfy. By this time the Christmas toys have been well played with, and the house could appear to be getting smaller due to the boredom of the family with each other.
The holidays are over and the rush has subsided, and the choices you have for entertainment are as close as your computer! You can play with some of those wonderful games the kids received for Christmas, or you can make a family movie night. Make sure you have plenty of popcorn and fruit juice on hand so that either a well-laid plan or spur of the moment decision will flow smoothly and easily with stress for no one!
If you decide on movie night the choices are endless. You now have the ability to either rent movies from home, receiving them in the mailbox (with much convenience), you can do down to the movie rental store (remember you wanted to stay in), or you can join a movie club on the internet. You pay a monthly fee for this, and you can buy the movies and have them shipped to you, or you can rent them and have them instantly downloaded to your computer. If you have them shipped just remember that at some point you will have to return them in the post. Some of the major cable companies are now doing instant downloading also pay-per-view being one of the most popular since its inception. Your choices of how to order movies are almost as varied as the number of movies themselves. These days you can even order movies on your pc and legally burn them to DVD!
Not only are there lots of choices for how to receive your movies, but the sources of these movies (and a lot of TV shows) now include nearly all of the major movie studios. They will normally contract out to internet distributors to provide the services for anyone who owns a PC and is connected to the internet, making instant movies easier than ever for the stay at home family! You may even find that if you stay in and do activities with your family, such as movie time at home, your family members will start to reconnect.
Don’t forget, the weather will soon clear out and so will the family. Take advantage of the chance to reconnect with each other during movie time at home before they all scuttle out the door until next winter!
