The tree’s been lit, the cookies are cooling, and the stockings are hung by the chimney with care (with time to spare)! Why not treat yourself to a little downtime before the guests arrive? Curl up on the couch, pop in a festive flick, and take some time to relax before the family gatherings begin once again.

Glasses in Holiday Movies

Not sure where to start? Simply check off this list of holiday classics (and watch the trailers!) — all featuring a fine, frame-wearing character or two! Who knows, maybe they’’ll even inspire your new winter spec style:

It’s A Wonderful Life

The tale of George Bailey is a holiday classic to be watched again and again. Filled with humor, heartwarming spirit, and sophisticated round spectacles, this timeless film is a must-see each holiday season.

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

There’s no better way to celebrate your dysfunctional family than by watching the Griswold family’s Christmas shenanigans. While we could do without his antics at our seasonal celebration, we are slightly jealous of Clark’s retro square glasses.

Love Actually

This modern romantic comedy shows just how complicated love can be, especially during the holidays. Throw in a star-studded cast and some seriously stylish oversized readers, and you’ve got yourself a holiday classic in the making.

Miracle on 34th Street

Whether you’re a fan of the original or the 1994 remake, it’s impossible not to fall in love with the story of Susan and her unshakable faith in Old Saint Nick (and his half frame readers, of course).

A Christmas Story

Oh, the famous leg lamp, the pink bunny suit, the tongue-to-frozen-pole antics, and the Red Ryder scene — there’s just nothing like this crazy holiday classic. Who knew nine-year-old Ralphie could make such a style statement in a pair of round thick-framed readers?

The Holiday

This modern classic from 2006 follows two heartbroken women who find love during the holidays — while staying in each other’s homes! We love this romantic comedy — and especially Jude Law’s handsome specs.

The Polar Express

A classic children’s book turned into a gorgeous animated movie — what could be better? This story is all about believing (and we believe in Tom Hanks’ cartoon version of metal half frame readers, too)!
