The holidays are here — and the season couldn’t be busier. From the annual to rat race to find the best gifts for friends and family to the additional pressure of our pandemic-life norms, December 2020 promises to make Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Boxing Day, or whatever celebration one celebrates even more dizzying than usual. Luckily, there are about 800 ways to decompress coming to a living room near you in the next few weeks. The holidays are chaotic, but in this case, it’s Chaotic Good.
From an avalanche of holiday specials and made-for-Netflix Christmas movies to film and TV’s year-end stragglers and those last few games to make the recent PS5 and/or Xbox Series X investments worth the while, the holiday season is crammed with new entertainment. If you were thought you were going to play catch up while chestnuts roasted on an open fire, think again.
In our 2020 holiday guide, you’ll find big previews to all of your options, exclusive interviews with creators bringing the yuletide fire, and general merriment in every category. Instead of spending this season wondering what’s in all those gift-wrapped boxes, rip ‘em open and start enjoying yourself.
