If the Farmer’s Almanac is correct, and this winter is especially harsh, you might need something to occupy your time if you get snowed in. Here’s a list of classic movies and books to keep you company while you snuggle up by the fire.

Lots of folks have a favorite movie era, so we’ve organized our selections by decade. While there are countless classics — about as many as there are opinions on the subject — we had to limit our selections to 10 per decade. How many of these have you seen?

Pop some popcorn, grab a dog for your lap, relax under a blanket — and let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
