Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live on the other side of the world? To temporarily swap houses with someone and experience life in a completely different country? This is exactly what Amanda and Iris do in the movie The Holiday. They each have their heart broken and want to run away for a little bit to escape their reality. They meet on a house swap website and decide to trade houses for two weeks. Do you think a change of address can change your life? Well, you’ll have to watch the movie to find out! For today’s Movie Monday, we’re featuring this movie and how you can turn a viewing party into a ladies night out!
Movie Party with The Holiday:
This movie takes place over the Christmas season so it’s the perfect reason to dig into some holiday treats. Since the two main characters in the movie exchange houses, a fun activity for your ladies night would be to build & decorate some gingerbread houses. One of the best parts of building a gingerbread house is eating all of the delicious leftovers!
If building a gingerbread house seems like too big of a task, perhaps you could build yourself the perfect men…gingerbread men! In the movie, the two main characters have their hearts broken by the men they love. What they don’t know is that their perfect men are right around the corner! Decorating gingerbread men is an easy activity that you could do before, during or after the movie. I’d suggest before or during the movie so you have time to eat them too!
