Turkey and Cranberry Pannini #FoodnFlix

Every year we have a rotation of Christmas Movies that we watch.  The main three are: my personal favorite, It's a Wonderful Life; Frank's favorite, White Christmas; and we both love the original Miracle on 34th Street.

There are other Holiday movies that we watch as well but these are the main three that are considered "must watch" in our household.
