The Best Christmas Movies in 2022 and Where to Watch Them – TV Guide

Where to stream 8-Bit Christmas, A Christmas Carol, and more

June Diane Raphael, Neil Patrick Harris, and Sophia Reid-Gantzert, 8-Bit Christmas HBO Max

Remember the rule about no Christmas music until after Thanksgiving? Yeah, that rule is a thing of the past. “Jingle Bell Rock” is all over your local Starbucks, so you may as well watch a Christmas movie too.

At this rate, we’ll be watching Christmas movies in before we go trick-or-treating, and you know what? I’m fine with it! Especially with all the great Christmas movies out there, both old and new.

Our list of the best Christmas movies to watch in 2022 is updated with all the latest streaming destinations, and features childhood favorites like Elf and A Christmas Story, all-time classics like A Christmas Carol and It’s a Wonderful Life, and new movies like 8-Bit Christmas and Happiest Season, whether they’re on HBO Max, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, or anywhere else. If you’re looking for more Christmas cheer, check out our guide to every Christmas movie and special airing on TV or streaming on your favorite streaming service, or check out our list of the best new Christmas movies on Hallmark, Parmount+, Hulu, and everywhere else.

Visit the Royal Caribbean (RCL) – Get Free Report website and you see some stunningly low prices. “Weekend getaways from $149, Alaska cruises from $249, and 7-night cruises from $401,” literally lead the page. And, while those prices are per person with double occupancy required or a solo traveler will pay twice that number, the deals are still pretty incredible.

These are very low prices compared to land-based vacations when you consider that a cruise on Royal Caribbean, Carnival Cruise Line (CCL) – Get Free Report, or MSC Cruises includes not just a room, but food and entertainment. You might be able to get a cheaper room in a tourist city like Orlando or Las Vegas, but add in even budget meals and you’re almost certainly spending more money than taking a cruise while getting far less.

3 types of normal forgetting — and 1 that isn’t | Ideas.Ted.com

To be human is to forget things. But you’ve probably wondered: “When is forgetting normal, and when is it not?”

Here are four examples.

1. Forgetting where you parked
Not remembering where you parked because you didn’t pay attention is normal and different than what happens with Alzheimer’s. If you have Alzheimer’s, let’s say you park in a mall garage and shop for an hour. When you return to the parking garage, you’re not wondering if you parked on level three or level four, you’re thinking, “I don’t remember how I got here.” Or you’re standing in front of your car, but you don’t recognize it as yours.
