There's just something about the holiday season that recalls old-school indulgence and glamour. Usually, it's a time of endless parties where decadent dressing and dining are to be expected, replete with an air of celebratory hedonism. And, well, since that's all out the window now, what better place to turn while sitting on your couch in pajamas than the vast array of lavish period pieces streaming online? Big gowns, big hair, big drama - what's not to love?
