St Stephen’s Day: Family-friendly movies on the telly today

Kat O'Connor

Looking for some family-friendly movies to watch? We’ve got you covered.

Happy St. Stephen’s Day to you all.

The madness of Christmas is behind us and we’re very ready to enter a food coma until 2022.

We’ve got mountains of leftovers to get through and new pyjamas are calling our name.

It’s a day for turkey sambos, pyjamas, and a lot of chocolate.

Luckily, we’ve got enough selection boxes and tins of biscuits to keep us fed until next Christmas.

However, they’ll likely not last until New Year’s Eve.

Pass the tin of Roses and get comfy because today is a day for movie marathons.

If like us, you’re planning on curling up on the sofa all day then you’re in luck.

There are some pretty great films on throughout the day that will even keep the kids entertained.

There’s something for everyone including a Disney remake, a classic musical, and one of the most beloved family movies of all time.

You will all be pleasantly entertained with this wonderful list of movies to tune into.
