Netflix Holiday House: I Just May Move In

The giveaway is closed. The winner is Kristin Loper who commented, “My favorite is It’s a wonderful life, my mom got me started watching it when i was little now i get to watch it with my kids.”

Shopping, movies, hot cocoa? I’m there.

Netflix asked me to help spread the word about a fun event tomorrow at Opry Mills which would be a nice break from holiday shopping.

I’m especially excited because I’m taking the day off from work to spend time with Miss A who has a special Christmas field trip to Chaffin’s Barn Dinner Theatre. Before the play we’re heading to Opry Mills to stop by Netflix’s Watch Instantly Holiday House in the food court. There’s going to be a family room, a child’s bedroom, a teen’s hideaway, a media room, and a kitchen where shoppers can kick back and check out the many ways they can watch their favorite TV shows and movies streamed from Netflix. Honestly if they threw in wine and streaming episodes of Mad Men I might be tempted to just move in until the end of the year….but my family would eventually miss me. I hope.

The Netflix Watch Instantly Holiday House will be set up with all the comforts of home: couches, recliners, and beanbags and hot cocoa, cookies, and popcorn will be served.  Each “room” will be equipped with Netflix-ready devices such as the X-Box 360, PlayStation, TiVO HD DVR, Roku Digital Video Player, and LG Network Blu-ray player. There will be several people on hand to help shoppers test the new Netflix Watch Instantly service, which allows members to instantly watch unlimited movies and TV episodes streamed to their TVs and computers.

Netflix has offered a fun prize pack, which includes autographed CDs from Julianne Hough and Jennifer Hudson, slippers, and a messenger bag, for a Blonde Mom Blog reader. Just leave a comment about your favorite holiday movie. Mine is “It’s A Wonderful Life.” A random winner will be chosen from all eligible comments left by midnight Sunday, December 20 (U.S. addresses only.) For an extra entry you can Tweet about this giveaway and link to this post (but leave an extra comment here telling me you’ve done so.) Thanks and good luck!

Disclosure: I was not compensated monetarily for this post, but I agreed, along with four other local bloggers, to help spread the word about this event.

Updated to add…here’s a picture of myself with Middle Tennessee bloggers Kelly from Faithful Provisions and Elizabeth from Busy Mom.

    Oooh, that sounds like it will be such a fun and special day for you and Miss A! I hope you ladies have a great time together. 🙂

    As silly as this sounds, my favorite holiday movie is “Frosty the Snowman” — the original cartoon one. It just reminds me of when I was a little girl and Christmas was so magical…

    Oh that sounds sooo cool. I wish I lived in Nashville- no seriously, whole family here for holidays- wish I was in Nashville.

    In terms of fav holiday movies, hmmm The Christmas Story with red rider bb gun, you’ll shoot your eye out, leg lamp, dogs eat the turkey business.

  3. EG says:

    Love Actually. You can’t watch it with your in-laws on account of the nudey story line, but it’s just great.

  4. Aulstin Gardiner says:

    I love “The Grinch” with Jim Carrey. I thought he did an awesome job and that make-up was CRAZY!

  5. Tabathia B says:

    Growing up it was Christmas Story, but now it’s the Polar Express. I love watching this movie with my children.

  6. Kate says:

    Toss up between A Christmas Story and Christmas Vacation. We watch both multiple times throughout the season!

    My favorite Christmas movie is Polar Express. I love watching it with my students each year.

  11. kalee says:

    I love Mickey’s Christmas Carol. It’s so sweet and shorter than the new one so it’s great for little ones!

  12. Kelly Deaton says:

    I’m with the kids on this one – I like Frosty the Snowman, it’s just cute!
    Thanks for the chance!

  13. Allen L says:

    I love A Christmas Story, my wife doesn’t, but it’s in my Watch Instantly Queue just in case she changes her mind!

  14. Shannon says:

    Tough question but I’d have to say National Lampoon’s Christmas with the Grizwalds!

    It still cracks me up everytime I watch it!
