3. This is America, Charlie Brown: The Mayflower Voyagers
After taking a voyage to discover the New World, the Peanuts gang settles into their new homeland with the Pilgrims, working hard to build a new life.

Jilted by her high-powered fiancé just before Thanksgiving, and terrified of disappointing her demanding mother, Hillary Burns hires an unemployed artist to pretend to be her fiancé over the holiday weekend.

Not your typical holiday movie, “Four Brothers” is a revenge thriller directed by John Singleton and it stars Mark Wahlberg and Tyrese Gibson. It tells the story of four adopted children seeking to avenge the murder of their foster mother.
